Hangzhou Basic Information

When to Take a Hangzhou Travel

Hangzhou has a subtropical monsoon climate with mild and moist weather and four distinct seasons. Average temperature in summer is 28.6C (83.5F), 3.8C (38.8 F) in winter. Generally, spring starts in March; April and May are the best seasons for visiting with the average temperature between 9-15C. June, July, and August are the rainy season with frequent showers. The end of June to the early part of July, marks the start of the Meiyu Season (or Plum Rain Season, of about a month long rainy season, beginning in early summer when the plum fruit ripens in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River). In early August, typhoons often occur bringing heavy rain. During this period, you should bring an umbrella with you. Even if it does not rain, an umbrella is also a nice prop for photos you take at the West Lake. September and October feature excellent weather when clear skies and bracing air can be enjoyed almost every day. In winter, on the other hand, the city suffers severe cold since most places are not equipped with heating systems. However, Hangzhou is still a tourist capital of China; many travelers pour into the city, their numbers peaking during holidays and weekends.
