Upgrade Completed; But still a work in progress!

Hello travelers!

As you can see, we upgraded our forums on Wednesday Oct 15th. We're back up and running, but we are still a work in progress! We'll be renaming things and creating an all around better experience. In the meantime, you can use the forums (the functionality is extremely similar to what you are used to). We hope to be finished tweaking things very shortly. Thank you for your patience; it is appreciated!

    Re: Best month for China

    I don't know the best time. I do know that July is extremely hot and humid--probably not the best time. One of our guides said that many factories and other heavy work places used to close when temps were above 40 degrees Celsius, but now those temps are so common that they just go ahead and work through them; otherwise, they would be closed much of the time in the summer.

      hi, i can tell the best month for travel to China. becase China have different area in big land.

      i can tell u that check the weather before u going to China.

      for example, if u want going to Beijing city that it's the best month is 4 - 6 and want going to Xiamen city that it's the beat month is after 10.

      and u also can find some city's travel pictures from China Pictures travel website for preview some spots.

      good luck

        We just got back from China.

        Prior to booking the trip, I checked for the cities we were going to visit. You can check monthly averages. I found this helpful.

        Disclaimer... the average temp in Hong Kong in November is 70 (20C). Well, it was upper 80's.
        The average temp in Beijing in November is 50 (10C). If you've been reading the headlines, you may have noticed that it was 32F (0C) last week (when we were there). So much for planning.

          Well…The months of April, May, September and October are ideal months for travel anywhere in the country of China. Usually May, September and October are the peak tourist months at China's most popular destinations when the weather is most comfortable for everyone , but prices are higher, and everywhere is more crowded.Its depends on you that where you want to go means in the different places the effect of weather is different. So I think it's best to get a clear idea of where you want to go in China and plan accordingly.

              We were there in September. Beiing was lovely- mid 80's- comfortable for walking and great for watching all the activities in the local parks. Then we were in Yangshuo--it was 105!! The weather charts did not predict that temp!! Hot and humid. We still enjoyed ourselves but we took a lot of showers. We were also glad that we packed all zip off pants which were easily washed in the shower and dried quickly.

                The best time to visit is March to August. During this period, the weather is favorable and the wild flowers are in bloom here and there. September or October is also a favorable month. This is fall harvest time and the entire plateau becomes a golden world.

                    Which city? I mean if you want to enjoy some custom of the country, Late Jan to early Feb is the best, cold though.
                    And I think Beijing would be great to visit in Autumn, saying Oct to Nov. The view will be great by then. Other cities like Shanghai or HongKong, any time is of no difference.

                      Except Spring Festival, May 1 - May 7 (Labor day) and October 1 - October 7(National Day), any other time is good time travel to China.

                        April & October are best month to China. But should avoid Oct. 1 to Oct. 7 big holidays.

                          I was in China last year with my family. I would refer month of October.

                            I guess April to August is the best period to visit China because of the best season and the weather.

                              I went to China in July. I don't regret going then because it was a wonderful trip, but the weather was extremely hot, especially when we were in Wuhan. I like hot weather, but when it gets above 100 Farehenheit, it is too hot to be comfortable. So I don't advise most people to go to China in the middle of the summer unless you are going only to the more mountaneous regions where it will be cooler.
