You should bring warm winter clothes with you, including down coat, woolen sweater, gloves, scarf, hat, cotton boots, etc. There may be snow then.

the lowest temperature will be below 0 C, though it is mostly sunny.
so take your winter jackets, thermal wears, gloves, scarf, especially for your kids.

Greetings. I need some advise on the type of clothings that's suitable during 19th-28th of November in Beijing. As I'll be traveling with my family which include my daughter who's only 8 years old I'm concerned of the weather there. Please advise. Thank you.

it would be quite cold at that time, so take winter clothes, such as thermal wear,
gloves, scarf, boots, and woolen sweaters.

just got back from beijing for a 6 nights trip last 19 Oct 2012. The weather is really cold for an autumn season. My advise is to avoid sunlight as the weather is cold although the ray of light is there. Use strong spf sunscreen. I occasionally use the thermal wear and gloves to the great wall...

it is getting cold in late October, the temperature would be around 10 C or even lower than that, so take some warm clothes with you.
