If you go to the good restaurant, you are advised to dress decent, such as Tie and Suit. For nightclubs, you can dress casually. But avoid shorts and slippers.

Based on the condition in previous years, SH can still be a little bit cold during February with the lowest temperature of around 40F and until April, the temperature often ranges from 45F to 60F.
The other two cities should be a little bit warmer. So, it is advised you prepare light sweaters, jackets, and t-shirts.
