China Travel Guide

When to Go

If you plan to travel China you must consider two factors: The weather and the public holydays.

China is the third biggest country in the world. Its climate is particularly diverse, from sub arctic in the North to tropical in the South. There is a large range of terrains that include mountains, deserts, and plateaus in the east; while in the west can be found plains, large rivers and hills. In Tibet, lies Mount Everest, at 8,848 m. Turpan depression is the second lowest point on land in the world.

Precipitation in China is regular every year. The rainy seasons are principally May to September and in general the south of the mainland has more rainfall than the north including some monsoons from the western Pacific Ocean or the equatorial Indian Ocean. Sometimes the heavy rains in the coastal central and south of China have caused flooding in the cities near to the rivers and have destroyed a high number of crops. Conversely, the northwest is a region of low rainfall and drought-prone.

In general, the best time to travel to the north of China is early spring and late autumn, especially between March to April and October to September. In the south, November to February is a good time, despite of the humidity. Central China is warm in summer but very cold in winter. The west is even colder but the humidity is lowest because of its distance of the sea.
