July and August are the hottest months of the year in Guangzhou. It is scorching hot and rainy with the highest temperature at noon often hitting above 35 °C (95 °F).
The average temperature in summer is 29 °C (84 °F), and at night the low temperature is still about 26 °C (79 °F). It rains most of the days of the month, and the humidity is 82%.
Bring summer clothes such as shorts, T-shirts and skirts. Wear sun protection such as hats, sunglasses and sun cream. Try drinking the local herbal tea. It's very popular in Guangzhou and is believed to be able to relieve heat and dampness inside the body.
We recommended bringing an umbrella for the afternoon thunderstorms and occasional tropical storms.
July is the beginning of the typhoon season in Guangzhou and the first typhoon generally strikes in mid-July.
Depending on the weather, you might want to go to a museum or visit a local outdoor attraction.
Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall is a small museum in a park with pleasant surroundings. It is a place to learn about China's history and about the life of the "Father of Modern China." It is a short walk from Yuexiu Park.
Walk around and enjoy the summer weather in Guangzhou's biggest city park – Yuexiu Park. It is more than 200 acres in area, and it features hills, many gardens, and three ponds. It is designed to be both beautiful and interesting.
You can exercise there and watch the locals do morning exercises, play instruments, practice martial arts and walk around. Subway Line 2 goes there.
July is a shoulder month for tourism and travel. However, it is also the summer vacation time for Chinese students. You may encounter some long queues at popular attractions and in shopping malls. Hotel rooms, train tickets, and flight tickets are usually available, though.
We arrange Guangzhou tours for families, groups, and individuals and give you advice on the local festivals and other things that we would recommend for you.
