Spring months in Shanghai are the best time to visit. This owes a lot to the Chinese weather. ¾Spring time is pleasant, with temperatures hovering around 20 degrees, making for a comfortable and pleasant stay. You will find exploring the city a lot easier during these months, as opposed to the summers and winters which are too hot and too cold. Spring time is also extremely beautiful, with all the flowers budding and making for a lush scenery. Places like the Yuyuan Garden and the People's Square become even more beautiful.
