Before Travel

Climate

The climate in China is extremely diverse, which crosses tropical regions in the south and subarctic in the north. It’s mainly dominated by dry seasons and wet monsoons, which lead to temperature differences in winter and summer. In winter, northern winds coming from high latitude areas are cold and dry; in summer, southern winds from sea areas at lower latitude are warm and moist. The climate differs from region to region because of the country’s extensive and complex topography. Most parts of China have a clear division between seasons. In northern China, such as Inner Mongolia and Xinjiang, summer is dry and sweltering while winter is formidably cold. Sandstorms sometimes occur in April in this area, especially in the Inner Mongolia and Beijing area. On the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau (about 4,000 meters above sea level) in southwestern China, winter is long and extremely cold while summer is short and moderately warm. There is little precipitation in this area and the temperature fluctuation is great between day and night. In central china (the valley area along the Yangtze River), summer is long, hot and humid while winter, short and cold. In the southern areas, temperature rarely falls below freezing. In the far south, areas around Guangzhou, the summer is long, humid and hot while the winter is short and comfortable, a paradise considered by many northerners. The rainy season runs from May through August and typhoons frequently occur in the southeast coast between July and September.
