December in Hohhot is very cold, as the lowest temperature plummets to –16 °C (3.2 °F). The entire city may turn white as it snows heavily for the entire month. At the same time, the wind often blows strongly, making the weather much colder.
Bringing warm clothing such as a pullover and thick jeans to stay warm outside is important.
December falls during the low travel season because of the bad weather. Few visitors go to Hohhot this month, making hotel rooms and flight tickets easier to book. Planning to visit Hohhot in December? See China Highlights' tours of Hohhot for more information.
