The weather is becoming cool during October. The maximum temperature is 22 °C (72 °F) and the minimum temperature is 13 °C (55 °F). Generally, a light coat is enough, but you may also need a thick coat in case the weather becomes chilly. It rains less and the weather is dry. The ultraviolet radiation is not too strong, but wear sunscreen with SPF 12-15 and PA+ to protect your skin.
October 1 to 7 marks National Holiday week. During this period, more tourists crowd into Nanjing. Hotel rates are often higher than usual, and tourist attractions are crowded. If you plan to visit Nanjing during this period, book everything in advance and see our Nanjing tours, or have us tailor-make a tour to Nanjing for you. See our Nanjing Tours.

Hi! Will be in Nanjing during October. Glad to have more comfortable temperature than when I was there this past July/August. It was brutal then.
October is much cooler in Nanjing, it is fall in China then.
