November is also a good month for festivals. It is cold because this month is the beginning of the winter weather. The South and Central China can be an ideal time to travel. Why it is the best month to travel to China?

The first reason, because, in November you can see and enjoy the autumn colors, the second, China’s top attractions are less crowded and after the October holidays, many restaurants, flights and hotel are cheaper. I collect the top 3 China festivals in November and I hope that you will like it…..
