Summer in China
Chinese summers are hot, with temperatures ranging from 25 – 33C, and this is also the season when most things are happening. Summer is the best time to visit the mountainous regions of China, such as Tibet, Yunnan and Guilin, as these regions are a little cooler than at sea level. Some visitors find the heat a little too much, and remember that summer is a time when Chinese families travel, as the children are out of school for a couple of months.
The Autumn Months
September and October are the two months of autumn in China, when temperatures begin to drop after the hot summer, and for many Europeans, this is the best time for travel. Beijing is lovely at this time of year, and the number of locals who travel during autumn is lower.
