Guilin has a sub-tropical monsoon
climate with four mild and distinctive seasons.
Spring is warm with some rain, building
up towards May. On rainy days, the rivers, pinnacles
and the city itself can be shrouded in mist, which
is especially enchanting.
Summer can be hot and humid; most
of the rain comes in June and July. But the beauty
to be found out doors is quite adequate compensation.
Autumn is a beautiful time to visit Guilin as
the weather cools down. And it is sunny almost
everyday because dry season starts in this season.
Winter is cold and moist, especially in January,
but can still be very pleasant when the sun is
out. It snows occasionally. Winter is the off
season of tourism so Guilin is less crowded and
it is cheaper to travel.
The weather in January is the coldest
and July is the hottest. Warm clothes are recommended
for winter-wear, while in spring and autumn something
like a light woolen sweater will be comfortable.
T-shirts with skirts, shorts or slacks are the
best choice for summer when it's quite hot and
humid. It's always a good idea to prepare insect
repellent in summer.
The optimum time to travel in Guilin
is from April to October. But, try to avoid the
golden week, National Day (1 October to 7 October),
when all the people in China seem to come out
and travel. Also Spring Festival (Chinese New
Year) in January or February should also be avoided
since more and more families take a trip rather
than staying at home as before. At these times
you can expect difficulties with hotel reservations,
ticket booking and traffic conditions and prices
are frequently much higher.
