Xiamen Weather

Xiamen weather is mild and pleasant most of the year because the city has a subtropical monsoon climate. In this case, the whole year round is good time to visit except that typhoons influence the weather four to five times during the months from July to September. The annual temperatures average 21C (about 70F) and rainfall abounds mainly in the months from May to August. The climate in winter is mild, requiring only sweaters or light coats in the coldest January. Summers are free from extreme heat, although thin clothes are still needed in the hottest July.

The previous weather statistics show that the temperature may range from 25C to 35C during that period of time. It will be hot and moist. There may have several rainy days. But it won't influence the sightseeing. Don't worry. :)

The temperature difference would be large. At daytime, it would be moderate but at night, it is would be cold and humid. So you need to pay more attention to the proper clothes at different time. As I know, there is no special show in this month. But you can take a visit to the old folk buildings - Tulou.
