Chengdu Weather in July 2024: Travel Tips

Weather: July is the hottest and wettest month of the year. It's the monsoon season and can be sweltering. The average maximum temperature is 30 °C (86 °F), and the average minimum temperature is 22 °C (72 °F). It rains most of the days of the month, and there is about 225 mm of total rain. 

Clothing: Summer clothing is generally adequate. It rains a lot, so it is very wet, and sometimes flooding occurs. Remember your raincoat or umbrella when you go out, and be careful of the occasional bad weather. When the sunlight is strong, you can wear sunglasses to protect you eyes.

Things to Do in July

Keep cool in museums or high in the mountains.  Recommended places to visit are in the mountains at Mount Qingcheng, Jiuzhaigou Valley (at right), and Jiufeng Hill where you can get away from the heat.

Jinsha Ruins Museum: It is one of Chengdu's favorite tourist attractions. The museum is atop the archeological excavation site. It is about 7 kilometers or 4 miles west of the Chengdu city center. A previously unknown Bronze Age civilization was discovered there in 2001. The ceremonial center flourished about 3,000 years ago. The culture is known for its amazing bronze art objects.

Jiuzhaigou: Chengdu is a base to see one of China's greatest and most beautiful national parks. Similar to Yellowstone, there are hot spring limestone pools of many colors. And the whole valley is framed by high mountains with white tipped peaks. We offer combined tours of both the city and the national park. 

July is a low period for travel.

Hotels and flight/train tickets are relatively easy to get at low prices. However, when schools let out for summer vacation in July, traffic is added to the transportation system. Make your arrangements in advance if you go during this month.
