What to Wear

Long-sleeved T-shirt or shirt plus long jeans are generally enough to cope with the morning and evening coolness, and dress and shorts will do for a sunny afternoon. Prepare a light coat for any bad weather as well.

Where to Go

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.
