When to Visit Shenzhen
The best months to enjoy a visit to Shenzhen are October, November, and December. In summer, the temperatures can be extremely high, and, combined with the tropical humidity of the coastline, the whole experience can be quite unpleasant – not to mention that it’s also typhoon season. Spring is milder, but frequently plagued by storms.
This leaves only three months per year when you can enjoy a visit to Shenzhen to the fullest, so don’t wait up, book your Tiger Holidays tickets today, as there’s not much time, and seats sell like hotcakes.
