December is the second coldest and driest month in Nanjing. The maximum temperature is 10 °C (50 °F) and the minimum temperature is 1 °C (34 °F). It snows lightly and occasionally. Wear a down jacket or a fur coat to stay warm. Despite the cold, the sun still shines. When outdoors, wear sunscreen with SPF 12-15 and PA+ to protect your skin. As a large temperature difference exists between day and night, dress appropriately to avoid catching a cold.
December is in the low travel season. There are few tourists in the city, and discounts on hotel rooms and flights are easy to obtain. If you are planning to visit Nanjing in December, see our Nanjing tours or have us tailor-make a tour to Nanjing for you. See our Nanjing Tours.
