The Mid-Autumn Festival is the second biggest traditional Chinese festival. It usually falls in September, but occasionally the public holiday is in early October. Take advantage of the pleasant weather to see traditional outdoor sites and join the festivities in the shopping streets and city parks.

See the Lintong Pomegranate Garden: In the middle of September, especially during the Mid-Autumn holidays, you'll find families out enjoying the fruit trees in Lintong. You can join them. It is in the same district as the museum of the Terracotta Warriors. So during a visit there, you can enjoy the fruit. The pomegranate has a special historical significance for Xi'an and is the city's offical flower.

Watch the Xi'an Ancient Culture and Art Festival: Enjoy the song and dance and the folk art displayed at the site. The festival lasts the entire month.

I am traveling to Xi''an, guilin and Yongshou in September. Is the weather hot? Does it rain a lot? Are there a lot of mosquitoes?
Hi, September marks the beginning of autumn weather. The hot and humid weather continues but it is gradually replaced by autumn cooler and drier weather by the end of this month. There may still be a week when there is prolonged rain, but it is usually not as heavy. Mosquitoes are less than that in Summer. Regards, Coco guest replied on 2013-08-18

Hi Roger, The weather in September is still very warm, and summer clothes will still do, so shorts are permissable. But you'd better prepare a thin coat in case the weather become cool at times. Have a nice day! lisa replied on 2011-09-09
