Weather & Climate

China’s extreme size means it has a great diversity of climates but being located entirely in the northern hemisphere means its seasonal timings are broadly comparable to those in Europe.

When to go

Early autumn around September and October are wonderful times to visit when temperatures are pleasant and rainfall is low. Spring is also popular, for similar reasons, and March or April are a good option.
