Best Time to Visit Beijing

Generally speaking, Beijing is suitable to visit all year round, especially from mid-October to mid-November when it is neither too hot nor too cold, and it has changed from peak season (May to Sept) to off-season (Oct to April), which allows you to enjoy your trip without too many crowds. The second best choice to visit Beijing is in spring (March to May) when everything comes back to life with pleasant weather. If you go in summer (June to August), be prepared that there will be lots of tourists especially in July and August because that’s when the Chinese students have their summer break, and many of them will choose to have a trip to Beijing. Winter (December to February) is cold in Beijing, but the heating installations indoors will keep you warm and comfortable. When you go outside, make sure to wear warm clothes.
