Chengdu Weather in August 2024: Travel Tips

Written by Kelly PangUpdated Jan. 14, 2021

Weather: August is as hot as July. The average maximum temperature during the month is 30 °C (86 °F), and the average minimum temperature is about 22 °C (72 °F). Sunny days are scorching. August also sees the second highest amount of rainfall (201 mm) of all months of the year, and it rains most days of the month. But don't worry about typhoons and thunderstorms, because Chengdu is seldom influenced by such bad weather.

Clothing: Summer clothing such as T-shirts and shorts or miniskirts are appropriate. Take an umbrella in case it rains.

Things to Do in August

Sanxingdui Museum: Along with the pandas and natural scenic attractions, Chengdu's museums about the Sanxingdui culture are top tourist attractions. The civilization flourished from about 3,200 to 3,000 years ago, then it disappeared and was forgotten until 1986 when this site was discovered. It is about 40 kilometers from Chengdu's city center. It is easy to reach, and the reward is seeing astounding art and bronze sculptures. They are some of the biggest and best preserved in existence from that time in history. It is amazing and strange art.

Keep cool at the world's biggest mall: The New Century Global Center opened in September 2013. It has become one of Chengdu's main tourist attractions. It is one of the world's biggest buildings. There is an indoor water park, wave machine, and its own sandy beach! Foreign luxury brand boutiques have not moved in, but you'll find middle-priced stores with Chinese brands, hotels, and indoor entertainment such an ice skating rink and theaters.

August is a low travel month.

Since it is hot and there are no major holidays in August, travelers in Chengdu are relatively few. Scenic spots are not crowded, and you can find good discounts on hotel rooms and flight/train tickets.
