Weather is the most important consideration when planning your travels to China during the winter. Keep in mind China is larger than the United States, so winter in Beijing will be much harsher and snowier than in the southern provinces. If you’d like to escape the frigid weather, consider visiting Guangzhou or Yangshuo in the south. Temperatures in either city rarely approach freezing, and as long as you avoid traveling during the Chinese New Year, you’ll have many of the attractions to yourself. Warm up even more with a visit to tropical Hainan Island.
