Beijing’s weather in March, the transitional period from the cold winter to the warm spring, is very changeable. The temperature rises and falls frequently and sharply, with a big difference between day time and night time. It is still dry and windy at this time, so there is a good chance of experiencing sandstorms. Cold air sometimes attacks the city especially in early and mid March.

 Clothing Advice: The unstable weather may leave people more susceptible to illness, so it’s advisable to wear appropriate clothing. Always take spare clothes when going out in case the weather changes. Generally, a sweater and a thick jacket are enough in early March, but take an extra outer layer, gloves and hat as well in case you encounter any unexpected strong winds and a sharp fall in temperature. If coming in late March, a thin sweater plus a light windproof jacket will be adequate.

 Travel Advice: Flowers begin to bloom and trees start to bud, so March is a wonderful time for mountain climbing and enjoying the local plants and tress. Wuling Mountain National Forest Park and Baihua Mountain Natural Reserve are are splendid destinations for mountain climbing. The wild plum outside of the Beijing Great Wall usually bloom in middle or late March. Besides, there are also plum blossoming in the Fragrant Hills Park and the Botanical Garden.

 Other Tips: Drink plenty of water and eat more fruits and vegetables to maintain your good health. Prepare a mask and a veil or a pair of protective glasses to prevent being hurt by sandstorms.
