Plan your Beijing tours in August?    August is our hottest and humblest month. The sad thing is that the heat of August comes hand in hand with humidity.

Though Beijing weather in August is not appealing to travelers coming to Beijing, August is a peak tourist season in China with a huge number of domestic tourists visiting Beijing. August in China is the summer vacation time for students. Many families will visit Beijing together during summer vacation.

Wear summer clothes and bring an umbrella since there are occasional thunderstorms. Well book your hotels and tickets in  advance. Also check whether your hotel is equipped with an air-conditioner and make sure it functions well.

This is very important since Beijing is very humid in August, making it very important to have a cool place for your day.

Check the daily weather and plan and pack for your Beijing tour or China tour.
