China’s climate varies significantly depending on where you are travelling in China. In the far north and in Inner Mongolia, winters are especially harsh and summers, dry and arid. Ranging from a tropical climate of Hainan in the south to the subarctic Heilongjiang province in the north, China experiences complex climatic conditions.
Temperatures vary regionally, but precipitation varies even more. During monsoon season, some parts of central and south China experience more than 1,000mm of rain during late spring and summer. In the north, rain is scarce with little precipitation in the desert regions.
