Q & A about Shanghai by Our Customers
Topic From: Beijing Weather in April
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.
Asked by V.Krishnan on Jan. 21, 2014
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!
