You can go to Shanghai in any season. However, the high tourist season is during the summer, from May to September, when the weather is mild while being hot and humid. It is interesting to be in Shanghai at the time of the Chinese New Year, at the end of January, beginning of February. A real show and a lot of backfires! Chinese people usually take a week off for the Chinese New Year to visit their families. Travelling out of Shanghai at this time of year is very complicated! In terms of climate, the best seasons to travel to Shanghai are spring and autumn. This will help you avoid the winter cold and the heat and rain of summer. It rains the least in December (4 days on average) and the most in June (10 days). However, it is in June that the tourist season in Shanghai is in full swing for both foreign and local tourists
