Asked by Cheong YC from MALAYSIA | Feb. 12, 2019 18:01Reply
I will be traveling to these places from 8-17 Mar 19, Beijing, Datong, Xi'an & Luoyang.
The only place I had been to is Beijing. The rest of the places, I have never been there before. Are the weather cold at these places? Possible to see the blossom peony at Luoyang in early March? Heattech or Long John needed when we are out sightseeing? Gubei Water Town is my first time. Do I need to bring extra clothes there as I'm planning to stay a night there.
Answered by Taylor from DENMARK | Feb. 27, 2019 01:54
No, the weather will get warmer in March. Generally speaking, the Peony Blossom Festival will start from late March to May. Heattech and Long john are not necessary. You are suggested to prepare jackets, thin sweaters, jackets, sneakers and pants.
