Things to Do in Xi'an in May

Try to avoid the May Day Holiday (May 1 to 3) crowd when planning your itinerary. Generally speaking, parks, gardens and suburban mountains in Xi'an are all strongly recommended destinations. Qujiang Pool Park, a popular scenic spot featuring its natural beauty and abundant history, really deserves a visit. Boating, fishing and enjoying tea in this park are very enjoyable. Not far away is the Cool Cave Heritage Park, the first theme park on wedding ceremony and ancient Chinese marriage customs. You will see some lovers taking wedding photos in the park.

Other Tips

It is still a month when allergies occur very often. If you are hypo-allergenic, you had better wear a mask outside and wash your hands and noses carefully when you come back. When you go outside, put on some sun-blocking cream and wear sunglasses to protect your skin and eyes from the strong ultraviolet. Do not forget to bring an umbrella for the sunshine and rain.

It is much better to go there in the middle May.
The mid May is the transitting time of Spring and Summer. Both of the climate and the temperature are nice for traveling in both XA and places along the Yangtze River.
