China is characterized by a continental climate, and the climate differs from region to region because of the country’s extensive territory and complex topography (latitudes span nearly 50 degrees). Most parts of China have a clear division be-tween seasons. In winter, northerly winds from high latitude areas keep the northern part cold and dry, while in summer, monsoons from southern coastal areas bring warmth and moisture. The rainy season runs from May through August and typhoons frequently occur in the southeast coast between July and September. Consequently, China is best visited in the Spring and Fall, avoiding the sweltering heat and monsoons, as well as the winter cold.
