The best time to travel to China

Just like the United States, China is a vast country, where the climate and weather vary in different regions. Generally spring and autumn (April, May, September and October), are the best times to visit China, with average temperature from 10–27°C (50–81°F). Summer is also nice time, especially for family with kids planning a summer vacation to China from USA. However you may expect sudden downpour at a scorcher. If you travel in China in winter, you can meet less tourists, cost less and perhaps participate in some traditional Chinese festivals, like the Spring Festival (Lunar Chinese New Year) celebrated throughout the country, including Guizhou, where the miao, dong and other Chinese minority people have their grand celebrations.

    Practical Travel Tips for Americans traveling in China

    • What about drinks?

      A: Local tea is commonly served with meals and there is a variety of soft drinks, local and imported beers and wines available for purchase. You should not drink the tap water, bottled water is inexpensive and readily available. If you like a 'cuppa', you may like to bring along a small supply of tea bags, coffee and milk powder. Most rooms have electric jugs or thermos flasks of boiling water to make hot.

    • What are the toilet facilities like on a China tour?

      A: All of hotels reserved for you have western style bathrooms and toilets. Obviously in the more remote areas, they may be a little more basic, but clean and simple is common. Whilst sightseeing, toilet facilities at restaurants and local tourist sites can vary and we would recommend that you carry tissues, wet wipes or disinfectant gel with you, “just in case”.

    • What should I pack?

      A: Casual clothing is appropriate at all times although clothes that are too revealing are still frowned upon in all over China. Try to pack lightly as your trip may involve an amount of personal baggage handling as porters are often not available except in larger hotels. For security reasons it is essential that your baggage can be locked whilst during air transportation between cities. At times, you may not be able to check into your hotel room immediately or be able to access your main bags. To ensure your comfort, a change of clothes in your hand luggage to coincide with local weather conditions is always handy. All personal toiletries should be taken with you and small packets of tissues or wet wipes are recommended. A small medical kit containing medication to alleviate common ailments is suggested.

    • Clothing suggestion:

      Spring (Mar – May) with temperature at 50 - 71.6F: Western suits, jackets, sports coats, woolen jackets, long sleeve shirts and travel shoes

      Summer (Jun – Aug) with temperature above 71.6 F: T-shirts, short sleeve shirts, skirts, sandals, caps, rain wear

      Autumn (Sep – Nov) with temperature at 50 - 71.6 F: Western suits, jackets, sports coats, light woolen sweaters, rain wear and travel shoes

      Winter (Dec – Feb) with Below 50: Overcoat, thick woolen sweaters, lined coats; In northern China, cap, gloves and cotton-padded shoes are required

    • What credit cards can I use?

      A: At present the Bank of China accepts Master, American Express, Dynasty, Visa, JCB, and Diners Club cards. Travelers may use these cards to draw cash over the exchange counters in China's banks, make purchases or pay bills at large department stores, restaurants and hotels in more than 100 major cities in China. A surcharge of 2% is always charged for card transactions.
