China climate

The Chinese climate varies from region to region since the country is massive! 

In the northeast the summers are hot and dry and the winters are freezing cold. 

The north and central regions have frequent bouts of rain coupled with hot summers and cold winters. 

In the southeast there is plenty of rainfall, semi-tropical summers and cool winters.  Flooding can occur in the central, southern and western regions and the country in general can experience earthquakes.

When to go

The weather in China is best in spring, from March to April or autumn, from September to October.  Keen to experience Chinese New Year?  Then you’ll need to be prepared in advance; hotels and flights are booked out around this time (usually the end of January or the beginning of February).
