The annual average temperature in Hunan is about 17 °C (63 °F).

Scenery in Hunan Province show its beauties in different seasons, hence the best time to visit Hunan will accordingly change

Changsha, the capital city of Hunan, is a nice tourist destination during the whole year except summer for the intense heat. However, autumn is the best season to visit Changsha, because the red autumnal leaves cover all over Yuelu Mountain and Juzi Island is the most beautiful during this time. 

For visiting Zhangjiajie City, spring and autumn should be the best seasons, for the pretty peach blossom in spring, and the colorful autumnal leaves and delicious fruits in autumn.
