I''m planning to go to Inner Mongolia from the 26th-29th of July. What is the average temperature? Will it be extremely hot? What should I prepare (clothing, etc)? Is it true that fresh water is scarce there?
Based on the data in last year, the temperature ranged from 18℃ to 27℃， sometimes it was rainy but was not heavy. It is cool during that period, you could take some T-shirts and a jacket.
The water is less than that in other cities, but it won't affect your daily life. It is easy to buy the bottled water in supper markets, stores or hotels. Lussie Lu replied on 2014-06-11
