Some of the local festivals are held at this time like the Lanting International Calligraphy Festival and the Peachblossom Festival in Hou Mountain. During May to October, the waterfalls in Wuxie Scenic Spot are much more spectacular because of the sudden increase in water run-off in the rainy season. Autumn in Shaoxing is the most pleasant season, for the sky is clear and the air is crisp. There is less rain during this season.

Lanting International Calligraphy Festival is held in Lanting Pavilion (Orchid Pavilion) on March 3 (lunar calendar) every year. On that day, many famous calligraphers get together here to display their calligraphic skills and their works. People meet to share their experiences on calligraphy and to drink together.

Peachblossom Festival in Hou Mountain is held in Hou Mountain in March every year, when people hike in the charming peach blossom mountain, appreciating the beautiful scenery.

Rice Wine Festival of Shaoxing is held during October every year. It is a grand and wide-ranging festival including series of programs such as discussions on wine culture and rice wine, and a Gourmet street, evening lantern show and the calligraphy-painting exhibition on rice wine.

Currently, it is so early to tell the exact weather in July this year, because it is so early. Generally speaking, that time is the local summer time with average temperature is around 27t o 36C based on the previous records.

Since you only have two days, you can suggested to visit the SX city only. In this city, you can see the East Lake, Former Residence of Lu Xun, Shen Garde and Zhuji City. After that, you can visit the Anchang Ancient Town if you still have enough time.

It is safe at night and day time, so please do not worry.

The distance between Dongguan and SX is around 1300 to 1400km by road. To Suzhou, there is around 200km.

Hope these information can help you ~
