As the capital and most populous city of the Guangdong province, Guangzhou is one of the three largest cities in China. It has a rich history that dates back 2,200 years since its founding, with many attractions and culture of its own.
The climate in Guangzhou can be said to be humid all year-round with the average temperature between 13.9 degree Celsius in January to 28.9 degree Celsius in July. Therefore, the peak time to visit Guangzhou is usually around March to May during the spring season when the temperature is warm and comfortable to go out, therefore expect hotel and flight ticket prices to rise around this time. The off-peak season to visit Guangzhou is usually around December to February during winter which is the coldest time to be in the city with temperatures that could go to as low as 0 degree Celsius with 5 to 10 days of precipitation. This will make it less comfortable to go out and a lot of the time will be spent indoors instead. The good thing is, you will find better flight tickets and hotel deals around this season because the prices will usually drop. Visitors should check the weather reports before going to this town if they are still planning to go around this period.
