Best Time to Visit Beijing


Beijing is a city with four distinct seasons – Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter. When is the best time to travel to Beijing? What kind of clothes do you wear in Beijing in various seasons?

The spring and autumn are the best time to come to Beijing. The blossom is everywhere in spring, and the whole city is full of vitality. Beijing is cool in Autumn, and the red leaves are everywhere. It would be great to climb the Great Wall and have a picnic outdoor.

Spring (March - May): The spring temperature in Beijing is suitable and comfortable. The blossom is everywhere. In the urban area, you can go to the lake in Beihai Park, go on a green outing, or go to the suburbs to visit the Great Wall and visit the ancient temple.

Autumn (September - November): Autumn in Beijing usually begins in mid September and ends in mid November. During this period temperatures are cooler and the magic of fall casts a red spell over the maple trees of Beijing, turning the famous attractions into beautiful autumn scenery. Photography lovers must grab the opportunity to capture the beauty.

Attention: The two golden weeks of 'May 1 Labor Day Week' and 'October 1 National Day Week' are also the peak period of tourism. Accommodation reservations and transportation are also tight, and prices will rise more than usual. It is wise to avoid these two weeks.
