We are planning a trip to Beijing from the 26th to the 4th of October,2012.How will the weather be and also will shops still be open>
Dear Nthabiseng, Based on the data from the weather forecast bureau, the average temperature will be 15℃(59℉)- 26℃(78.8℉), it will be sunny and it rarely rains. It'll cool at night and hot in the day. You could take some T-shirs, shirts and coats. During that time, the ship won't be closed as the festival, it won't affact you to do shopping. It will be more busy than that in other period. Lussie Lu replied on 2012-09-18
