Best time of year to visit China

Hi folks,

What’s the best time of year to visit Beijing and surrounding areas? My primary considerations are temperature, precipitation, and humidity.


I lived there for a bit, and the fall seemed nicest. Spring tended to have winds that brought lots of dust.

But really, any season but winter is ok for tourists. It gets hot in the summer, but not like jungles of Southeast Asia hot. Winter is hard to get around in because snow isn’t dealt with very well.

May- early June. mid Sep to end Oct

I was there the last week of October and first two of November last year, and it was a great time to visit. I might push it to a week earlier (mid Oct-first week of Nov.) - the weather is not hot or cold and there aren’t that many tourists, comparatively.
