it is cool autumn at that time.
you can visit the Forbidden City, Summer Palace, Temple of Heaven, Great Wall, and Old Hutongs.
you can try the hotels near the forbidden City.
here are some itineraries:

Hi! We rae arriving Beijing on 14 nov 3pm by the the we reach Forbidden city Hotel in Dongcheng it will be afternoon. Then we have 15 and 16 Nov for sightseeing because 17 nov our flight is in early morning. So from 14 Nov afternoon till 16 Nov evening what are the main attractions we can visit accordingly. Preferably we would like to visit Great wall, forbidden city, Lama temple, tianmen square, summer palace, temple of heaven on our own. Is those mentioned days enough for our visiting sites?

my suggestion is:
14th November: take a taxi to the Drum Tower to visit the old hutongs in the afternoon.
15th: Morning: Tianmen Square + Forbidden City. Afternoon: Summper Palace (stops selling tickets at around 16:00, so you'd better get there before 16:00)
16th: Morning: Great Wall (Badaling)
Afternoon: Lama Temple.
Since Badaling Great Wall is a little bit far from the city (at least 1 hours to get there), so you may get back to the city in the afternoon (around 15:00). The Lama Temple closes at 16:00, so you may have little time in the temple.

Hi, i will visit Beijing on this coming saturday (10th Nov - 16th Nov) with my friends. We know that currently the weather is very cold plus the heavy snow.. Do you think it will interrupt our vacation there?

don't worry, the snow will not interrupt your vacation. it is going to be sunny next week, but still cold, as the temperature will be below 0 C.

October 4th?
it is in the Chinese National Day Holiday, the Golden Week, when most Chinese people have 7 - 8 days off, and most of them will go out or go back home.
as for one or two days in Tianjian, you can go to the Huangyaguan Great Wall (may take a whole day), Ancient Cultural Street, and Dabei Buddhist Temple.

i suggest you live in the hotels in Wangfujing, which is near to the Tiananmen Square and Forbidden city, and easy to get to the Summer palace, bird's nest and Temple of Heaven.
the Badaling Great Wall is a little bit from the city, but there are tourist buses to the attraction.
recommended hotels are Prime Hotel, Crowne Plaza Beijing Wangfujing, The Peninsula, North Garden Hotel, Park Plaza Hotel Wangfujing

T-shirt, jeans and a light coat, take a warm coat if it rains.

Hello, I'm thinking you should have some more information about China trips and the price money. But there is a lot of information to this website. This is my opinion but I think you should have a different background compared to Orange.

Have a good day.

Bonnie :5/28/2012 6:58:20 PM

the padded coat is necessary when you are in Beijing in Novemberm since it will be pretty cold at that time, and the lowest temperature could be around or below 0 C.
it is also windy and dry at that time.

Hi Junaid,
the most famous amusement park in Beijing is the Happy Valley.
the Great Wall, Fobidden City, Summer Palace, and Hutongs are the must-see attractions in Beijing.
As for Shanghai, you can visit the Yuyuan Garden, Old Town Temple, the Bund, Nanjing Road, and taking the Huangpu River Cruise.

Hi Yasmin,
there are small amusement parks for little kids in most big shopping malls in Beijing.
go to enjoy the hot spring is also a good choice, there are usually special pool for kids.
you can also take your child to Beijing Ocean Park.
i think go to the theatre to watch a show is also a good idea.

Will it be snowing in Beijing or The Great Wall in February?

Larry :1/15/2012 1:16:19 AM

it is really hard to perdict, but it is usually snows in winter (December to February), so you'd better check the weather forecast 2 or 3 days in advance.

is it good to visit china during march? will the weather be pleasant?

In March, there is still a little cold in most parts of China, but the temperature is rising day by day and there is usually little rain. it is a good time to visit the southern and eastern part of China, such as Hangzhou, Nanjing and Shanghai.


I plan to visit Beijing particularly - Great Wall last week of December. Any advice?

Will great wall be closed ? Am climbing with 2 kids.

i think you need to wear boots or UGG is a good choice.

Rose Rabbit ( Singapore ) :11/27/2011 7:11:33 AM

I read that Beijing is cold but dry in Dec. I am going there in mid Dec.. My kids wld love to see snow... Wld u know what kind of shoes are suitable?

Helena ( China ) :10/14/2011 6:17:59 PM

December is a little tricky for great wall hiking trip but not impossible. Check the weather again for possible snow. If it snowed the previous days, it might get slippery and dangerous especially if you have young kids with you. And of course, wear down jackets and mittens to keep warm.

Della :10/8/2011 2:34:06 AM

hi MT,
the Great Wall will not be closed.
you can go to the Badaling Great Wall.
it will be cold at that time, so wear some warm clothes, esp for your kids.

My will be in Beijing 24 of november, possible i have ski at that time?

It hard to say whether it will snow or not then, since the whether changes. But it may possibly snow then according to the historical records.

Bruce :11/11/2011 5:15:34 PM

I'm afraid not this year, since the temperature is still above 5C now in Beijing.
