Climate: China is an immense country with various climatic zones. In the north there is a continental climate, with temperatures of - 20° centigrade in winter up to 30° centigrade in the summer. Travelling south we reach more moderate zones, finally converting to a subtropical and then genuinely tropical climate in Hong Kong. These vast areas are frequently flooded, but the chance of this affecting our journey is minimal.
The best time to travel: The best time to travel to China.is between April to October. In the spring the fruit trees and meadows are in bloom, later in the year the paddy fields are a deep green and in the autumn, when the nights get colder once more, it is harvest time and the rural areas are full of commotion. During all journeys you will experience sunshine, rain and cloudiness. In the winter months it can be considerably cold.
