Is it OK to come to Beijing during the winter/middle of summer?

Absolutely! Just prepare enough clothing for the Winter and more can be bought on location. The average temperature for the month of January is -4 °C (25 °F) and Beijing is dressed up in a white beautiful dress. For example the Great Wall is an amazing experience during the winter!

During the hottest summer months, mornings and evenings are cool. Afternoon is a good time to have a lunch brake and relax in the shade.

What is the best season for coming to Beijing?

Most popular seasons are the spring and autumn when it's not too hot and not too cold.

Can I make a special request for my tour?

Yes and for your enjoyment we even encourage you to do so. May Tours is a tailored service, so naturally we will do our best to try and make your request possible.

Can I make changes to the tour plan afterwards?

Changes can be made 1 day before at the latest. Just let us know as soon as possible! Same day changes can be made whenever possible.

Is Beijing a safe city?

Beijing is a very safe city in comparison with many other major cities around the world. But just like anywhere else you should take care with a few things:
  • — pay attention for pick pockets when in crowded places
  • — avoid talking with strangers who approach you on the street
  • — take care when crossing the street
