We will be going to Taiyuan for about one week mid-late October--what is the weather like--i've looked up the general temperatures ranging from 38 to 65 --but would I need to take spring or fall clothes?? Thanks so much.

It is getting cold in Taiyuan since late October as the season is heading into winter. I suggest you to bring some fall clothes, like lightweight sweaters, medium weight jacket, etc. Nothing too heavy but something to layer with in case of cooler temperatures and to transition from indoor to outdoor.
