Best time to visit the Golden Triangle of China

Uncover the secrets of the Terracotta Army, marvel at the Great Wall of China and experience the elegance of Xi’An. Tourists from around the world are flocking to the ancient country to experience its rich history. If you can only visit three Chinese cities, they must definitely be Beijing, Xi’an and Shanghai. The three cities have been named the Golden Triangle of China because they form a triangle when you connect them on the map.

Spring is a picturesque and pleasant season to visit China. Between April and May, the weather is mild and there are fewer tourists than in summer. In mid-March and mid-May, the countryside is full of blossoms and fresh green hues. Don’t miss the peach blossoming peak in March, it is a mind-blowing scenery!


Summer, from June to the end of August, is a peak travel time for Chinese families. But it is also a mass-tourism period. During these months, the temperatures can rise extremely high, that is well above 72F. Especially in the famous 'four furnaces' of China: Wuhan, Tianjin, Chongqing and Nanchang. Summer is also a rainy season, so don’t forget your umbrella and raincoat.


Autumn is the most comfortable season of the year. The temperatures are reasonable throughout China and there is less rain than in summer. The mornings and evenings can be a bit chilly. But it warms up during the day. During autumn, you can witness the magic of Mother Nature, when the trees and the mountains change color and prepare themselves for winter.


Winter is a low season with fewer crowds due to the harsh weather. However, the climate can create unexpected wonderlands. The Great Wall is a spectacular view covered with white snow. During this period, the travel tickets are cheaper.The cultural destinations like Beijing, Shanghai and Xi’an are hardly affected by weather conditions. You can thus visit those places all year round. Book well ahead if you are travelling during Labor Day (early May), Chinese National Day (mid-October), and Chinese New Year (late January or early February).
