July in China - Weather and Event Guide

By

July Overview:


July enjoys the dubious title of "Wettest Month in China". (It only wins by one day, on average, over May, June and August though, so it's not that bad. There's no getting around it: it's wet, hot and humid in July. But hey, it is summer after all, most places are hot and humid in July! Get your quick-dry clothes organized and head to China for the summer.

July Weather:

  • Beijing: the average daytime temp is 87F (31C), the average number of rainy days is 14.
  • Harbin: the average daytime temp is 82F (28C), the average number of rainy days is 16.
  • Xi'An: the average daytime temp is 90F (32C), the average number of rainy days is 11.

July Packing Suggestions:


Unless you get chilly in air-conditioning (and I do!) you can forget the layers. You'll be warm everywhere you go exept for high elevations. As stated, July is the wettest month in China so you'll need to be prepared.
  • comfortable and easy-dry shoes
  • light and airy base layer - shorts, short-sleeve shirts. China is very casual so you'll be hard-pressed to be under-dressed. Sleeveless tops and shorts are suitable for women as well.
  • rain gear - but if you don't bring it, you'll be able to buy it easily

Visiting China in July - Pros:


I like traveling when it's warm, it makes packing a lot easier and less bulky - more room for souvenirs!

Visiting China in July - Cons:


If you melt in heat and humidity, then July, (as well as June and August) is not the time to travel to China.

But look on the bright side, almost everywhere is air-conditioned so you'll be able to cool off. Enjoy China in July!
