In October, the weather is cooling down, and the end of the month is cold. The maximum temperature is 23 °C (73 °F) and the minimum temperate is 6 °C (43 °F). You may need a thick coat for the coolest days; otherwise a sweater and jacket are adequate. Given the large temperature difference between day and night, wear more or less clothing accordingly. Even when the sun is shining, the autumn wind cools things down.
The Gourmet Festival is usually held during October at Drum Street (鼓楼街) in Nankai District. A variety of delicious foods, such as local snacks, special dishes, delicate desserts, etc., are on display for visitors to enjoy. Taste this delicious food in wide streets or small alleys.
October 1 to 7 is National Holiday week in China. During this period, more tourists visit Tianjin. Hotel rates are often higher than usual and tourist attractions are crowded. If you plan to visit Tianjin during this period, book everything in advance.
