All you need is a light jacket and maybe long pants

Hebe :3/4/2013 5:07:18 PM

it will get warm at that time, and gloves and hat will not be necessary. maybe a normal jacket will. check the weather forecast 2 or 3 days before you go.

around 15 - 20 C.

I will be reaching Beijing on Feb15th at 7.00pm
My travel agent was suggesting me to do Tiananmen Square and Beijing Olympic stadium(exterior visit)on day 1. Do you think we need to wear winter clothes like sweaters, gloves etc
Also, we will be leaving 8.00am next day morning to visit the Forbidden City, The Mutianyu Great Wall.What kind of clothing we should wear? We will be using round way Cable car to go to the top of the Mutianyu wall? We should not be in too much sun. We ladies are in early 60s. Please advise.Thanks.

yes, you still need winter clothes for the whole trip. it would be still cold in Feb.. gloves, scarf, and hat are also needed.

but you need to wear some warm clothes if you plan to visit the Great Wall. hat, scarf and gloves are also needed.

It very near to the Spring Festival when it is usually the coldest of the year in Beijing and Shanghai, so you should wear as warm as possible especially that you will climb the great wall the the suburb of Beijing.

By the end of the month (January 2013), we will be visiting Beijing, China. I was wondering if it would snow during that time? Thanks!

you can only know whether it will snow or not at least 1 week before that date, so check the weather forecast before you go.

Hi, we are going to be in Beijing in the beginning of January 2013 for 5 days. I am wondering if there is any snow and if winter boots are necessary if we plan to visit the great wall, the forbidden city, etc. If there is snow, is there a lot or not enough to weat winter boots. Thanks!

I've checked the latest weather of Beijing for you. It predicted that no snow will be in Beijing during your visi. However, winter boots should be prepared, since it the lowest temperature will drop down to -13C then, and there will be wind.
