Xiamen Weather in February

xiamen yejingNight view of Xiamen

Weather: In Xiamen, February is usually the coldest month of the year. However, it is often comfortable during the day because the sea tempers the weather. The temperature is not low compared to cities in North China, but it might feel cold at night since there is usually no heating in most places except the top hotels.

Average daily low and high temperatures are 10 °C (50 °F) at night and a cool 17 °C (63 °F) in the afternoon. February is the end of the dry season, but the weather is still dryer than it is most of the year. There is about 100 mm of total rainfall each month, and it rains about 11 days of the month. See the current weather and forecast>>.

Clothing: The weather is cold, and you should wear an overcoat to stay warm outside. It is a little more humid than in January. Take an umbrella with you when it might rain.

Things to Do

Take a trip to Gulangyu Island: On a cold and rainy winter day, you can enjoy the food, coffee, and hot tea at this pedestrian shopping and sightseeing island. It is about 5 minutes from Xiamen by ferry. It might be good for a day trip or an excursion for a few hours. You can walk around and see the old international architecture that date from before WWII. It was once a foreign settlement. There is also sea scenery and several gardens to see.

Enjoy the Nightlife: Tourists can expect expat-friendly restaurants and generally good service and good quality food. The environmental quality is high, and it is known as one of China's cleanest cities. You can take a Lu River night cruise where you'll see the sights along the river while enjoying drinks or something to eat.

Celebrate Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year: In most years, the biggest holiday season in China is in February. So you can generally expect both a lot of festivities and a lot of heavy traffic at the airports, train stations, and bus stations during the "Golden Week" of holidays. There is heavy traffic in the week before and the week after this week too.

When you tour around, you can expect to see festival-related celebrations and temple worship. You can shop at the street markets, try the holiday food, buy souvenirs, and experience the customs. Most people try to be with family and friends during this week, and they celebrate with special food and set off a great amount of fireworks in the several districts where fireworks are allowed. Now, there is a government sponsored joint Taiwan and Mainland fireworks show to enjoy at 8 pm on New Year's Eve. Chinese New Year Dates>>

Low Travel Season

February is generally a low travel month unless Chinese New Year falls in the month. During the holidays and the week before and after, expect crowds at the airport, train stations, and bus stations, and expect higher prices for hotel rooms and greater difficulty reserving flight and train tickets. We can book rooms based on our experience, and perhaps get you a discount.

Why wait in line at crowded stations or ticket counters? Book in advance, and we might be able to deliver your tickets an easy way, and even get them at a discount.
