December in Changsha feels much colder than November, as the lowest temperature plummets to 4 °C (39.2 °F). Meanwhile, it is cloudy on most days, so Changsha does not get as cold as the other northern cities in China. Wear an overcoat and thick jeans outside to avoid catching a cold. /p>
The Laba Rice Porridge Festival takes place in December, which is the low travel season. Few visitors go to Changsha this month, so hotel rooms and flights are easier to book. Planning to visit Changsha in December? See China Highlights' tours of Changsha for more information.
