Beijing Climate

- Best Time To Visit

Beautiful Beijing presents different features for its clear distinction of four seasons: dry and windy in spring; hot and rainy in summer; pretty and transient in autumn and cold and clear in winter. Travelers planning to come in spring may be afraid of the sandstorm. Actually, with many effective measures taken by the government, like the shelter-forest, spring time has turned out to be pleasant recent years. Summer(June to August) is considered peak season, though it feels like swimming in soup. The best time to visit Beijing is the autumn months between September and November which have the best weather and fewer tourists. In winter, you'll have Beijing to yourself and many hotels offer substantial discounts. Please be ware of the coldness and a

sudden snow which will block your way to the Great Wall. Anyway, most of the city's tourist attractions are historical sites that are not affected by the change of season. Therefore, tourists can come to Beijing all year round. January is the coldest month with an average temperature of only 4.5ºC, while July is the hottest with an average of 28ºC. In autumn and spring, jeans and a sweater are usually enough. T-Shirts and shorts and very high factor sun cream are for the summer. You need warm clothing like down jackets in winter.

Hi there, we are looking to travel to Beijing in mid November this year. We are a little concerned at how cold it is going to be in Beijing? I have looked up some numbers that advise it to be between 0-12 degrees (Celsius). Is this true? Appreciate your answer, many thanks!

Winter starts to wane in mid Nov in Beijing. Usually, there will be several winds in Nov, but it will clear the sky and the lower temperatures will be compensated by the remains of autumn colors. I suggest bringing a pair of thin gloves, a warm fall coat and a hat to warm ears. Anyway, enjoy your trip!

Hi, we are gonna have a Beijing tour in December. Is it very cold in Beijing in Winter? Any fun?

Dear Sir/Madam, thanks for your inquiry. It is quite cold. If you want to have a Beijing tour in Winter, you can take some warm clothes. The advantage going in Dec is that there are not many tourists around, you can have great wall photos. Besides, the travel cost is lower too. Covered by white snow and fresh air, everything in Beijing is attractive in Winter.
