Best Seasons To Visit China
Being such a vast country the climate in China is extremely varied and does go from one extreme to the other. Winter is naturally a time when most tourist attractions are at their quietest, however the annual Chinese New Year celebrations (varies but can be any time between January and March) will see hotels and transportation being stretched to their capacity.

Spring (March – May) and Autumn (September – October) attract similar climates and are often regarded as the best times to visit China. The country begins to bloom in colour with Spring seeing floral explosions in the countryside and in Autumn russet hues take over the trees surrounding the Great Wall and also in some of the major cities. 

Summer (June – August)sees the country basking in high temperatures and long warm days. It is also when a lot of the rain comes. However be prepared for a lot of crowds to descend on the popular tourist attractions – this is when China’s children are on holiday and families and groups from the four corners of the country flock in 1000s to see the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, the Terracotta warriors etc. Despite the hot temperatures it is still a great time to go as long as you are prepared with light clothing, lots of water and a trusty Chinese fan to help keep you cool!

China Spring Travel Destinations
Where are the best places to tour China in Spring? China Spring Travel Destinations can surely offer some good ideas for you. With warm sunshine and gentle breeze, spring is a good time for an outdoor travel to appreciate this living planet.

Gardens like Humble Administrator Garden, Lingering Garden and Tiger Hill with blooming cherry flowers are the spotlight in Suzhou, while Tongli Water Town, only 18km away from Suzhou, will also come to alive during the humid spring time.

West Lake of Hangzhou is as an apple of the eye. Bathing the spring sunshine, strolling along the long Su Causeway, you will definitely impressed by the sight of “willow down and flowers reign”, which been highly praised by ancient poems.

Ever seen beautiful sandstone pillars protecting the mystic falls that are flowing under the forests? The thundering in forests that we see in horror movies? Most of the films are made on real locations. But where are these locations? Zhangjiajie is one of the locations in China which makes it an imaginary world where birds are chirping, mystic waterfalls are flowing under the forests and much more is happening to make it surreal to the tourists. 

The best time to visit this place is from last days of spring and summers. It is not recommended to go there in cold weather because the area becomes wet and snowy. Unless you are not a professional climber, you should not really take the risk, especially if traveling with family.
