The best time to visit Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund is in late March, April, May and early June, and again in September, October and early November. That’s when Shanghai’s weather is most beautiful — blue skies, low humidity and a light breeze. However, it’s also the time when the Five-Star hotel’s room rates are at their highest and tourist spots are the most crowded. Summers in Shanghai are hot and humid and winters are cold and damp. While all the city’s luxury hotels have excellent cooling and heating systems, many of the local restaurants and shops do not — they can be stifling or frigid as a result. So if you choose to come in the off-season, you’ll be rewarded with far fewer crowds and lower room rates.
