August in Beijing can be very hot and wet but with light cotten clothing, sunscreen and sunglasses you should be fine. An umbrella can help protect against sun or rain. So take advantage of a chance to visit an exciting city with its unique modern and traditional attractions. Visit out-door markets, incredible sights and marvelous buildings such as the Temple of Heaven, The Forbidden City, The Summer Palace and Tian´anmen Square or plan a tour to the Great Wall. If you prefer your culture indoors then the National Museum of China or the National Art Museum, Museum of Natural History might interest you.
|The Forbidden City||The Great Wall|
