Climate in Harbin

Harbin is the most northeastern and coldest provincial capital in China. The city has a long cold winter and short cool summers. Rainfall here is pretty minimal and even winters are surprisingly dry.

The heaviest periods of rain will fall between July and August. Snow starts as early as November and the coldest month is January.

It is possible to visit Harbin all year round (although in deepest winter makes sure you are adequately prepared - it is impossible to stay outside for extended periods of time). Most people visit in summer (July-September) for the exceptionally cool weather and in Winter (November-February) for the breathtaking Ice Lantern Festival.
