 Travel Advice: Spring outings are the most popular activity in this month. Thus, the parks, gardens, suburban mountains are all good destinations. Making a trip to the Mutianyu Great Wall winding among lush vegetation is also a good choice. In May, there are often international-standard performances, such as the annual Heineken International Jazz Festival. At the same time, Daxing Watermelon Festival is held annually on May 28 annually.

 Other Tips: Willow catkins are fluttering in the air in early May in Beijing, so wear a mask if you are allergic to pollen. It is still relatively dry, so drink plenty of water and use lotions or oils to moisten the skin. Bring suntan lotion with you if you travel to Beijing in late May. Lastly, try to avoid the crowds that throng the streets during the Labor Day Holiday from the 1st to 3rd May.
