With the end of rainy seasons in may starts the summer with scorching sun and blue skies that govern the later part of the summer. Summer in china traditionally can be summed with two words : hot, wet.

 

Summer by months: June,July and August

 

 

Northeast china experiences hot and dry summers whereas summertime can be quite hot with almost continual rainfall across northern and central china. Summertime in eastern china means not only heat but humidity. In the Yangtze River valley area including Shanghai,summers are long,hot and humid. The turban Depression in northwest china is also known as 'hottest place in china' with the maximum temperature of around 47 C. The Chinese have dubbed the cities of Wuhan,Chong quing and Nanjing “the three furnaces”. While Summers in Tibet and Qinghai Province are comfortable with average temperature of around 24 C.

 

There's a lot of things to do in the summer months and lot of great festivals to catch as well. Summer months are the perfect time to tour Tibet as the weather is the mildest and most of the festivals take place in July and August.

 

A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken. ~James Dent

 

And perfect summer day in China can be found in

  • Guiyang : An ideal place for summer holiday

  • Harbin: The pearl under the swan's neck

  • Kunming: It is spring year-round

  • Dali: Natural scenery with ancient buildings

  • Yichun: Green belt

  • Chengde: Delightfully cool place

  • Taiyuan: An ancient capital

  • Hohhot: A timeless area beyond the Great Wall

(According to People's Daily Online )

 

 

But that's not all. There are lot more place to visit during summertime.

  • Qingdao : The largest city in Shandong province is one of the most beautiful city in china and also known as green island. It also have beaches well known among Chinese people. Qingdao is well known for its brewery products and during August 14-29, Qingdao International Beer Festival is held at Qingdao International Beer City,195 Xiang Gang Dong Lu annually.

  • Xiamen : It is one of the clean coastal city of china and was recently voted as 2nd most suitable city for living. Located in Fujian Province this island provide lot of fun activities all year round. It is most famous for its attractive seascape.

 

                                       

 

  • Sanya: Southern most city in southern Hainan province of china is also know as Cliff State. It has astonishing beach and The Deer Turns (Luhuitou Park) which made it famous among the Chinese lover. Sanya is a noted tourist resort with mountains, sea, river and city.

     

  • Hainan: Hainan is a multilingual,multiethnic region with wide variety of tradition and culture. It is the second largest ocean island and smallest land province in China also known as 'Hawaii of China'.

     

 

It's August 15th , I am sitting on my couch sipping the cold beer and enjoying the rain and mild wind which is very unlikely in Nanjing, one of the most hottest place in China but still I can say Summer is Cool after all.
