April is a good season to see flowers in Beijing, and the weather is more pleasant than in March. Top places to see flowers include Beijing Botanical Garden for peach blossoms, Jingshan Park for peonies and Dajue Temple for magnolias.

April has some of the best events and locations Beijing has to offer up to visitors. The end of spring and prelude to summer brings with it festivals and outdoor activities galore. It is definitely not a time of the year to miss out on.

Beijing Zoo contains many creatures that can be found only in China,like the Yunnan species of peacock and Mongolian mastiffs, but the prizedpossession of the zoo is obviously their giant pandas. Nothing beats watching these creatures up close and coming out of a hibernation period in April. At noother time are they as rambunctious. And in April the weather is perfect totour the vast expanse of the zoo without breaking a sweat.

Qingming Festival: This festival commemorates those family members who have passed away, but it is far from a gloomy occasion. Filled with kite flying, Chinese tea celebrations and painting celebrations, this festival attracts tourist from abroad and domestic alike. And location isn't an issue for tourist shopping to join in and enjoy this city wide festival.

Tianmo Desert: Beijing's landscape is as diverse as any in the world allowing for a journey like no other. Tianmo Desert on the outskirts of Beijing has countless acres of dunes, blue skies, and is endowed with a boundless history. But in April the climate allows for a comfortable journey with sand skiing, off road vehicles, and beach tanning.

Be aware: Hotels, tourist attractions, and restaurants are gearing up for the crowds in the upcoming peak summer season, but still offer bargains.

We are planning to visit china Bejing xion Hong Kong Shanghai and macau from 26th April to 5th may 2o14 Both are senior citizens .kindly inform me the weather conditions and dress code for that period. I am a south indian lady with Astma trouble

Hi mangai, the weather in Beijing, Xian is warm, and is in late spring period. A long sleeved shirt and a light coat would be ok. It would be warmer, even a bit hot in Hong Kong and Macau, as it will be the early summer time there. T-shirts would do.

We are a travel agency in China. We have been in this line since 1959. Would you like me to send you a quoation for your reference?

We plan to visit Beijing on 7th of April 2014, and then proceed to Xian and Shanghai. We also plan to visit the "Great Wall of China". Later, we plan to visit Hong Kong and Macau. What type of clothing do we need to take? We are currently living in the Southern part of India where the temperatures are 29-22 deg Celcius. Kindly advice as we both are Senior Citizens. Are we likely to face "Sand Storms" while visiting the Great wall? Are we likely to experience snowfall? Kindly advice.

Hi Krishnan,

In April Beijing, long sleeves will be OK in most of the time and taking a coat for the evenings is recommended. The temperature is 13-18 degree Celsius, you will have no chance to see the snow then. Sand Storms is been governed in recently years, I think you will not meet Sand storms then, but I can't guranteen, good luck!
