Hangzhou Weather in August

CityWeather
Hangzhou weather is still very hot in August, with an average high temperature of 32°C (90°F). The highest temperature can reach 37-38 °C (98-100 °F) on a bright sunny afternoon. There are often temporary windy rains during late August influenced by typhoons, and the temperature may drop slightly. However, it will be soon hot again when the weather clears up. Thanks to the perfect vegetation coverage in the city with willows and other trees providing shade at most scenic spots, tourists will be rarely exposed to the sun.

Hangzhou has fewer tourists in August because of the hot weather. Hotels usually offer deals at this time, so the travel cost is more affordable than in the peak tourist season.

Things to Do

Hangzhou is a beautiful city even in the hot summer, with blue sky, white clouds, green hills, and clear waters. The West Lake lined with willow trees is magnificent. Besides, it is a good time to enjoy the lotus here, where the leaves stretch over a large area into the lake and the lotus looks extremely bright in the sunshine. Other natural scenic attractions are also recommended, such as Peak Flown From Afar, Xixi National Wetland Park, and Thousand Islets Lake. Some nearby watertowns like Wuzhen, Xitang, and Nanxun are good summer resorts. Moreover, Sweet-scented osmanthus generally blooms towards the end of August, when the air in Hangzhou is filled with the fragrance. It is also advised to pay a visit to the wonderful performance in the Song Dynasty Town.
