- Best Time To Visit

Changsha situated in the east central Hunan. Its terrain is high in the west and low in the east. The Xiangjiang River flows south to northwest, 296m high Mt. Yuelushan is in the west. Located in a sub-tropical zone, Changsha has a monsoon type climate. Average temperatures are around 18ºC and average rainfall amounts are around 1400mm. The summer comes around the later May with high heat and heavy humidity. The sweltering days of July and August are particularly stifling. Changsha's winter comes around November bringing little sunlight and heavy fogs. Llike Wuhan, the city has no heaters and we suggest travelers

 bring cotton and packed clothes, gloves and scarves and a hat for the windy days. Most of the rest days in a year are misty and cloudy. One thing a traveler should bear in mind is that the weather changes greatly during the transit period between spring and summer or summer and autumn. An unexpected summer rainstorm could arrive suddenly on a sunny day, so make sure to bring an umbrella with you. The long rain period starts in October and continues for one or two months, therefore one should plan indoor tourist activities during the latter part of a year

It is hot and humid in mid-July in Changsha. The general temperature ranges from 26C-34C. Light and airy base layer are just ok, like shorts, short-sleeve shirts, etc. Besides, the ultraviolet rays are very strong in Changsha, I would suggest bringing sunscreen.
