Hangzhou Weather in March

CityWeather
With Hangzhou stepping into spring in March, being outdoors under a blue sky is comfortable. However, the weather is changeable as between winter and spring, and temperatures vary greatly from day to night even on sunny days. Although it rains occasionally during this month in Hangzhou, the scenery of grass, flowers and willows by the West Lake under drizzly misty rain is enchanting as well.

Beside the beautiful scenery, there will be fewer tourists in March than during the golden travel months of April and May, so why not take advantage to better experience the south China's Jiangnan landscape and the local culture.

Things to Do

The natural scenery of Hangzhou in March is beautiful as there are wonderful spring flowers everywhere. It is also the best time for cherry blossom in Taiziwan Park by the West Lake. Riding a bike along the lake or visiting a tea garden to taste the fresh spring tea can be a memorable experience. Qinghefang Ancient Street is also worth a visit. In addition, the Botanical Garden, Thousand Islets Lake, and Xitang Water Town are recommended for all visitors to Hangzhou.
 
 

Other Tips

Generally speaking, Hangzhou will enter its peak tourist season from the 20th of March, so it is advisable to book hotels and air tickets in advance if you plan to visit during that period of time. With a convenient public transportation system, all the scenic spots within the city can be reached by public buses. But try to avoid taking buses or taxis during rush hours. Moreover, people who are allergic to pollen should avoid going out too much, especially on windy days.
