The authentic spring for Guilin features a daily maximum temperature above 20°C. On pouring wet days, the great temperature differences between day and night is a challenge for tourists.
|Average Maximum||Average Minimum||Highest Maximum||Lowest Minimum|
Sunny Days: 1 day

Rainy Days: 15 days
In early April
The weather in Guilin usually stays around 20°C, and the maximum temperature can be as high as 30°C. Thin T-shirts and cotton and linen shirts are preferable clothing. Bring rain gear for showers. The temperature at night is generally 15-20°C. Putting on a thin jacket is wise for an outing in the evening.
Weather during the Ching Ming Festival (April 5, also known as Tomb Sweeping Day) It usually rains on that day. As the temperature is generally between 15 and 20°C, it can drop after the rainfall. Wear a thin sweater or a knitwear for the outdoor activities. Put on or take off clothes promptly according to the temperature changes to avoid catching a cold.
There is an unbroken spell of wet weather in mid-April. The short, warm days will be replaced by a run of rainy days. The minimum temperature declines quickly from 20°C to 12°C. To stay warm in the chilly night for outdoor activities, rain gear and thin cotton-padded jackets are essential.
In late April
The weather in late April is similar to that in mid-April. The wet weather takes up most of the time in the late April. Although the temperature differences between day and night are noticeable, the temperature is generally rising. The maximum temperature can reach 28°C. Wear a sweater or a windbreaker for outdoor activities and carry rain gear.
