Climate of Hangzhou

Hangzhou, a land full of stories and legends and famed for its natural beauty of elegant style, is one of the most popular travel cities in China. It is situated in the southern part of the Yangtze River Delta. So the city enjoys a sub-tropical monsoon climate with four distinctive seasons with an average annual temperature of 16ºC. However, it is neither too hot in summer nor too cold in winter making it a year round travel destination.

Spring is a good time to visit Hangzhou to see the peach blossom around the West Lake. And then the trees turn green and the air is sweet. In terms of comfort however, the heat can be unbearably intense during the summer. Fortunately, the many trees around the lake and in the hills do provide cover from the worst of the sun. The average temperature in the summer months is about 29 degrees centigrade. In autumn, the temperature is pleasant and balmy and the sky a delightful color of amber. Spring and autumn are the most pleasant months and last for about two or three months each. There are often rainy showers during this period but the Lake takes on an almost mystical appearance in the fog and the respite from the heat the showers bring is often welcome. In winter, the snow falls on the lake creating a picture-postcard atmosphere about the Hangzhou city.
