Autumn starts around mid-October. It is still warm, and it is sunny with little rain. The average low and high temperatures are respectively 21 °C (70 °F) and 28 °C (83 °F). There are only about 7 days of rain in the month, and there is about 87 mm of rainfall.
A T-shirt or perhaps a sleeved shirt is good for the day when it is warm, but in the early morning or evening, you might need a light jacket.
October is the end of the typhoon season in Guangzhou. There might possibly be a tropical storm in early October.
October and November are generally the most pleasant months for outdoor activities and seeing local attractions in Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Macau. The Canton Tower near the Pearl River has one of the world's highest observation decks.
The Mid-Autumn Festival is the second biggest traditional Chinese festival. It usually falls in September and occasionally in early October. It is a festival to admire the full moon and to celebrate the harvest.
Moon cakes are served on the holidays, and you can also take a special festival dinner.
During a Pearl River cruise, the bright harvest moon might brighten up the river with silvery shimmers as you watch the bright, colorful buildings pass by.
The China Import and Export Fair (Canton Fair for short) happens semiannually from October 15 to November 4 and April 15 to May 5. It is the largest trade fair in China with the widest range of goods and the highest business turnover.
Guangzhou’s 144-hour visa-free transit policy provides an ideal opportunity for foreign business people to visit the trade shows.
October is one of the three high travel months.
The Chinese National Day holiday, celebrated annually on and around October 1st, is a week-long holiday for many Chinese people with the Canton Fair following close behind it.
