Weather: The city is cooler than in July generally, but the "Xi'an furnace city" season is in full swing. The temperature occasionally exceeds 38 °C (100 °F). It is particularly uncomfortable and muggy because the average humidity is 75 percent. There is about 71 mm of rain each August. It rains about 9 days each August and cools down after the rains.

On hot days Shaanxi History Museum a place to keep cool. The large national museum is dedicated to the history of Xi'an, the capital city of many old dynasties and kingdoms. It is considered one of the best museums in the country. 

You'll need more than two hours to get a good look at the large array of artifacts. There are precious porcelain pieces of outstanding beauty, and it is a good place to learn about China. Entrance is free, so you might find it crowded. It is next to the Big Wild Goose Pagoda.
