Beijing experiences 4 distinct seasons in a year, and - whilst pleasant to visit throughout the 12 months - is known to enjoy especially good weather in autumn. Taking place from September to October, this fleeting season features excellent weather of 15-19 °C (in the day), with plenty of sunlight and little rain.

Things to do in Beijing
The capital of China is one of the fastest-growing cities in the world but is, interestingly, also one of its oldest. Beijing has been in existence for centuries, since the time of the Chinese dynasties, and today is a unique fusion of old and new as well as tradition and modernity. Be sure to visit the magnificent Forbidden City, an imperial palace that has been standing for over 500 years. The UNESCO World Heritage Site contains more than 9,000 different chambers, and once housed China’s royal emperors and their families.
Besides the Forbidden City, the next must-see in Beijing is the iconic Tiananmen Square (and the famed portrait of Mao Zedong).
