Best time to Visit

Average time to visit

Shanghai and eastern China’s subtropical climate brings with it four distinct seasons. The weather is generally mild and temperate, with a great deal of rainfall even in the drier months of the year. The frequent monsoon showers and scorching temperatures of June, July and August can make it uncomfortably humid, with the mercury regularly rising over 35°C. Winter is overcast and chilly, although snow seldom falls in this eastern region of China. Spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) are the best times to visit Shanghai and eastern China, with pleasant temperatures and fewer tourists.

The best value option in Shanghai the Westin is well managed with great facilities and an excellent location in the heart of the city and right on the Bund. The hotel is split into two towers one of which has been recently renovated so ask for a room in the Crown Tower to ensure you get one of these. I really liked the new rooms, very bright with plenty of space and great bathrooms. The other highlights of the hotel are its excellent pool, and gym facilities and the spa which is actually managed by Banyan Tree and is one of the best in the city.
