•Avoid Peak Holidays:
It is not a good idea to travel in China during Chinese holidays when huge numbers of Chinese people are travelling around. The busiest three national holidays in China are Chinese Spring Festival (usually in late Jan or early Feb.), International Labor Day (May 01 to 03) and National Day (Oct 01-07). Spring Festival is an especially crowded time to travel. The advantage of being in China at this time is that you will get the opportunity to experience "first hand" the significance of these celebrations in Chinese culture.
1. In spring, an umbrella should be carried in case of rainfall.
2. In summer, sun-glasses and sun-block cream are advised to protect you from high UV.
3. Summer, especially in July and August, is the typhoon season, so please avoid going out when the typhoon comes. You had better stay in the room until the typhoon warning lifted.
