Tips for Travel to Beijing and Kunming
•Domestic Travel High Season
The most crowded seasons 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 and the National Day golden week are the most crowded time for travelling.

•Best Time to Visit Beijing:
The best time to travel in Beijing is in spring and autumn, especially the late March to May, and September to mid-October. Summer (June to August) is considered peak season, when hotels typically raise their rates and the Great Wall groans under the weight of marching tourists. The autumn months between September and November have the best weather and fewer tourists. Spring is less pleasant; not many tourists but lots of wind and dust. In winter, you'll have Beijing to yourself and many hotels will offer substantial discounts - just remember it's icy outside.

•Best Time to Visit Kunming:
With the title of City of Eternal Spring, Kunming is a destination suitable for travelling throughout the whole year. However, the best time to visit Kunming is from March to October. One can find a lot of Yunnan ethnic celebrations during these times in addition to many fruits and blossoms within this period of time. Because of this, visiting within this time will take you the most enjoyment and delight.
