CityWeather
August weather is hot and stuffy in Chengdu. The temperature is the same as in July with an average high temperature of 30°C (86°F). The heavy rains are concentrated in July and August, which may cause inconvenience for your trip. When it isn't raining, the city is usually cloudy, but the weather can be scorching on rare sunny days.

Things to Do

Although Chengdu weather is hot in August, attractions around the city such as Dujiangyan, Mount Qingcheng, and Xiling Snow Mountain are popular among tourists as summer resorts. It’s best to avoid visiting these places during weekends when they are full of locals and tourists. Short itineraries within Chengdu city are recommended in case of bad weather. To stroll along Jinli Street or Wide and Narrow Alley can be memorable. Walk in the town of quartzite on the road and you will be pleased by the music from the bars as well as the variety of local specialties. Wuhou Temple beside Jinli Street cannot be missed if you want to learn more about Chinese history. There are also pedestrian streets nearby with Tibetan specialty shops.
 
 

Other Tips

Streamline your travel arrangements in advance. But make sure to check the latest hourly weather forecast, and give up the trip to the mountainous areas in case there will be extreme bad weather. Remember to bargain before paying for local products at tourist sites. Also, you are advised to use the menu when you order food so that you will know the prices and avoid being overcharged.
