When to Go China

Spring (March-April) and autumn (September-October) are the best times to visit China, though the higher altitude areas of Tibet, Qinghai and Western Sichuan are best visited in high summer (June-September).

Daytime temperatures range from 20°C to 30°C (68°F-86°F) in these seasons – but bear in mind that nights can still be bitterly cold and it can sometimes be wet and miserable. Major public holidays, in particular Chinese New Year, are best avoided as it’s difficult to get around and/or find accommodation.
