Spring usually arrives in March and lasts until May. Spring is a comfortable season in China, and this will surely make your trip more pleasant and relaxing. It’s neither freezing cold nor sweltering hot at this time of year, though it is cloudier and rainier than autumn.
Spring is a season of flourishing new life with auspicious connotations in China! During this season, the flowers are blooming and the birds are singing, which makes the scenery even more beautiful and interesting.
Another advantage to visiting China in spring is that it is not as crowded and touristy as it is during Chinese New Year, the summer vacation, autumn, or the National Day holiday. You can enjoy your trip more fully and more easily digest this beautiful country without the churning crowds.
Besides these reasons, we have selected some great day trips for your spring excursions. These day trips are provided by Trippest Mini Group Tours, a China Highlights brand offering professional small group day tours in the major cities of China.
There are many destinations in China that are great choices for spring excursions. Among them, we have chosen the top four destinations for travelers based on our local experience and customers’ choices.
Spring is the best season to hike the Great Wall of China. You’ll not only see the magnificent Great Wall under the blue sky but you'll also have the chance to see blooming flowers decorating the Great Wall, which make it even more charming. If you are a shutterbug, you can’t miss the Great Wall! Get your shutter clicking to record the precious moments you spend on the wall.
There are many small water towns in East China, especially around Shanghai and Suzhou. These water towns are pearls of quaintness that decorate the ‘Yangtze South’ area. Located in one of the richest areas of China, these water towns preserve traditional Chinese architectures, gardens, artworks, and unique lifestyles. Take a gondola ride along the small canals running through the water towns and discover the stories about each of them.
As the phrase states, “east or west, Guilin’s scenery is best”, and Yangshuo’s scenery is said to be “the best of the best”. Spring in Yangshuo is as beautiful as a Chinese painting. Take a bicycle or an electric scooter ride along the beautiful countryside paths next to the Yulong River where the water flows silently, the birds are singing, and the flowers are blooming. Everything is so peaceful, harmonious, and perfect.
Spring is the season of love for pandas and you’ll have the chance to see pandas holding each other and showing their affection for each other. The best destination to visit these black and white bears is, of course, Chengdu. As the top habitat for pandas, Chengdu has the best environment as well as research and protection centers for pandas. Chengdu has more than just pandas, however — you’ll have the opportunity to taste delicious Sichuan cuisine.
