Taiyuan Travel Tips

Climate and Weather

Taiyuan has a temperate inland climate, that is somewhat offset by occasional monsoon weather. The annual average temperature is 9.3℃, with dry and cold winters and sweltering dry summers. Spring and summer are often blindingly bright, so sunglasses and a hat are recommended to fight radiation. Generally speaking the best time to visit is between May and October, if you do not mind the heat.

Local Festivals and Folk Custom

Shanxi Taiyuan International Folk Arts Festival
Initiated in 1991, the festival is held annually in September, and every other year in Taiyuan. Groups from Russia, Korea, Japan, Singapore and Inner Mongolia attend the festival and perform for audiences. Within the festival, an exhibition of fine arts, painting, paper-cutting, sculpture, drama, acrobatic and the culture of costume will open your eyes to a wealth of international folk culture.
