Shanghai Weather in July
Weather: July is one of the hottest months in Shanghai. The temperature during the day may climb to 37 °C (98 °F). At night, the temperature can remain at around 26 °C (79 °F).
July is also the wettest month, but the city has rarely felt severe effects of heavy rains in the past. However, the surrounding areas, including Nanjing and Hangzhou, have not been as fortunate. Floods may disrupt your travel plans in these areas.
Clothing: Dress for hot and humid weather, and bring a pair of gumboots. Sunlight is very strong and can burn your skin, so bring sun cream and sunglasses.
Things to Do
The indoor attractions will keep you cool and dry in the rainy monsoon summer days.
See the Bund: Along the pedestrian riverfront area, people go to see the river, the colorful lights on the old buildings, and the old colonial architecture that date from the time that the Europeans built the area.
Shop on Nanjing Road: It's the most popular shopping street, and it connects to the Bund, so you can visit both in a day. You can chose between the luxury malls and shops and smaller crowds on West Nanjing Road and the many restaurants, the variety of shops, and the huge crowds walking down East Nanjing Road. East Nanjing lights up like a bright casino area after dark.
Shanghai Museum: This is a large museum where you can keep cool while you learn about the region's history and see fine antiques that show how art, technology and style changed over time. It is one of the best in the country, and you'll marvel at the ancient artworks.
High travel season: Summer holidays for students begin this month. The city and its tourist attractions are very crowded. Hotels usually raise their prices, train tickets are sold out days before departure, and discounts on flights are impossible to obtain. Let us help you book flights and train tickets.
