When is the best time to visit Chengdu?

Answers from Our Experts (1)

The best time to visit Chengdu is in the fall. In October and November, the weather is perfect (wear a T-shirt in the day and a light jacket at night), and trips into the countryside will be rewarded with colorful foliage and off-season crowds.

Just avoid Golden Week (the first week in October), a national holiday period for almost the entire country, when traveler numbers — and accommodation and transport prices — surge.
