April is a good season to see flowers in Beijing, and the weather is more pleasant than in March. Top places to see flowers include Beijing Botanical Garden for peach blossoms, Jingshan Park for peonies, and Dajue Temple for magnolias.

Hike the Great Wall

April is a good time to hike the Great Wall as there is usually pleasant weather and beautiful spring scenery.

About 1½ hours' drive northeast of Beijing, the Mutianyu section is the favorite of our customers with its majestic mountainous vistas, beautifully restored architecture, and fewer tourists.

If you want to save time, you can take a cable car to ascend and descend the Wall.

April Dates to Avoid for Beijing Travel

April 4th 2020 is the Qingming Festival public holiday (Tomb Sweeping Day). According to Chinese traditions many citizens will drive to cemeteries to commemorate their ancestors. Younger people are more likely to spend the holiday and the following weekend (April 6-7) city sightseeing or on short getaway trips to the Great Wall or Beijing's nearby ancient villages. Road traffic and crowding will be increased.

Beijing International Long-Distance Running Festival is due to be held from 7 am on Sunday April 14th 2020. 20,000 participants will take part in this event. Its 20-km (13-mile) course starts from Tian'anmen Square and ends at Beijing Olympic Park. Road traffic will be restricted, so please plan your day trip time wisely to avoid the crowds or traffic jams/detours near the running route.
