distinctly recognizable. Spring and autumn is the best time to be in Beijing, particularly in
the months of April, May, September and October. Autumn is considered to be the
best time to visit Beijing
as the skies are clear and the weather is very comfortable. The four seasons
are very clear in Beijing
with a temperate spring, rainy summer, clear autumn, and a cold, snowy winter. The
average temperature throughout the year is 11.80. The coldest month is January
with an average temperature of -4.60 and the hottest month is July at an
average temperature of 26.10. Unfortunately, spring and autumn are shorter than
summer and winter. Although winter is technically longer, that should not keep
you from travelling to Beijing
as indoor heating is widely available. Nevertheless, as the indoor/outdoor
temperature difference is rather large, travelers should be prepared with warm
clothing and a thick coat is recommended for the colder months of the year. In
winter, off-season discounts are to be had as well.
