Best time to visit Jingshan Park

The climate during spring and autumn is favorable for travel in Beijing. In autumn, the city is known as Golden Beijing by tourists from China and abroad. In other words, April, May, September and October see the largest numbers of visitors. The annual average temperature is 11.8° C with the lowest being -4.6° C in January and the highest being 26.1° C in July. Each year records approximately 644 mm of precipitation and a frost-free period of about 180 days. Beijing’s spring and autumn last for relatively short periods of time while the winter is long. Never fear, the indoor heating system in Beijing is excellent! Nonetheless, visitors should bring sweaters and heavy coats with them in the wintertime. They should also pay attention to daily weather forecasts or call line 859, which provides bilingual (Chinese and English) information about the weather for that day and the following day.

Then again, Beijing’s tourism is concentrated on historical sites that are not easily influenced by the weather, so visitors can come here year-round and have a wonderful experience no matter the season. Spending costs can be reduced by travelling to Beijing in the winter due to the fact that the travel agencies and hotels all offer off-season prices for tourists.
