In Beijing the winter is long and cold. Spring is the shortest season, usually between 4 – 6 weeks only. But when spring arrives in the second half of April, everybody enjoys and visits parks or the mountains around Beijing.
Especially the Yuyuantan Park (Jade Lake Park) in the West of Beijing is popular and very crowded during this period because of the many cherry blossom trees.
This week the summer arrived. For mild temperatures in the low twenties we now have to wait until mid September when the pleasant (and longer) autumn will start.
