When To Visit

The weather across China ranges considerably given the country spans many degrees of latitude. You can experience the harsh arctic temperatures of Harbin in the winter to the temperate year round climate of Hong Kong in southern China.

From April, a southeast monsoon from the western Pacific Ocean and a southwest monsoon from the Indian Ocean hit the southern China provinces of Guangdong, Guangxi and Hainan often bringing Typhoons. In June, the rains start to track northward so that during July and August, cities such as Shanghai experience their wet season.
