November is the beginning of winter in most parts of China. If you’re travelling in northern China, down coats and warm clothes are necessary, however, the weather is still quite mild in central and south China. Travelling in central and south China can be very pleasant during this time of year as it’s not too hot and the peak travel season is over now.
If you are a photography enthusiast, catching the autumn foliage in Nanjing and Yunnan is a must. Red, orange, yellow shades cover the fields and countryside. Apart from beautiful autumn scenery, travelling in November often means less expensive fares and accommodation so good deals are easier to come by.
