Best Time to Visit Beijing

The best time to travel in Beijing is in spring and autumn, especially the late March to May, and September to mid-October.
 

Travel to Beijing in spring
Spring which is normally from March to May in Beijing is always short. When we realise the beauty and comfort of spring following the cold and long winter of Beijing, we always feel that spring is nearly gone and summer seems to come.

While traveling in Beijing in spring, hiking tour seems to be a good choice for you. Several destinations below are fit for your hiking tour:
 •Mutianyu Great Wall – a wonderful hiking itinerary in Beijing;
 •Beijing Botanical Garden – appreciating spring flower blossoms along with breathing fresh air;

Summer which comes from June to August is regarded as a busy season. During this period, hotels dramatically put up price and every places of interest can be seen servicing lots of people.
