November is one of the best months to visit Beijing, when you can enjoy a China tour with less crowding and less cost. In October, especially during National Day holiday from October 1 to 7, tour prices are higher than usual, and attractions are crowded with Chinese tourists. And in December, it will definitely freeze. So, November presents a relatively comfortable low season opportunity.
Early November is a good time to see red leaves in Beijing. If you want to hike the Great Wall, go early in November to see the foliage. In the middle or the end of the month, you may have a chance to see a striking view of the Great Wall covered in snow.
