When to Go in China

When to Go in China

China’s weather is extremely diverse. Therefore, the best time to visit China will depend on which part of China you’re visiting to. The southern China is subtropical, with wet, humid summers (April–Sept), when temperatures can approach 40°C, and a typhoon season on the southeast coast between July and September. Although it is often still warm enough to swim in the sea in December, the short winters (Jan–March) can be astonishingly chilly.

The central part of China has brief, cold winters, with temperatures dipping below zero, and long, hot, humid summers. The three Yangzi cities – Chongqing, Wuhan and Nanjing – are proverbially referred to as China’s three “furnaces”. Rainfall around these regions is high all-round the year. In Beijing, winter temperatures rarely rise above freezing from December to March, and biting gusty winds off the Mongolian plains add a vicious wind-chill factor. Summers here can be well over 30°C.

Therefore, overall, the best time to go in China is spring or autumn, when the weather is at its most temperate.
