Tips for Visiting Beijing in August

the Summer Palace the Summer Palace

August falls in the peak travel season, and tourist attractions are very crowded. Hotels and flights are more expensive than usual. Booking in advance is recommended.

If time permits, start your Beijing tour at the end of the month, when many students are back home or at school and the city is less crowded.

In addition to the main attractions in Beijing, you can take a day trip to the Chengde Summer Palace, a good place for escaping the heat.
