What If You have to Go Out When It Rains in Beijing

[ From: fiona zhou | Published: 2007-07-31 Views: 2159 | Booked times: 54 ]

It doesn¡¯t rain in Beijing very often. But when it does, and when you have to be in the rain, hopefully saying ¡®oops¡¯ is not the only thing you can do.


Weather Forecast

Nobody expects a wet day for traveling or shopping. But it is wise to check your weather forecast in the morning.


If you have to go out on a rainy day, take an umbrella with you. The rain in Beijing seldom gets very heavy, but it lasts long. You may not mind walking in the rain for 10 minutes, but what about being soaked all day long?


What to Wear

Your shoes will definitely get dirty and wet even you have an umbrella, because a lot of roads are muddy and unevenly paved. It is likely you will step into puddles.


Remember Beijing is also dusty, and the red-colored dust will spotmark your shoes. So don¡¯t wear white or light colored shoes. If you do, you may have to do lots of cleaning afterwards.


Besides, make sure you wear a pair of waterproof shoes with thick soles if you want your feet stay warm and dry.


The temperature usually drops 3-5¡ãC when it rains in Beijing. So it would be a good idea to wear a pair of trousers instead of a mini skirt. A coat would be necessary as well.


What If you Don¡¯t Have an Umbrella

Don¡¯t worry if you haven¡¯t got an umbrella with you. Where there is a need, there is a seller. You can find cheap umbrellas priced RMB 10 almost everywhere in a high-traffic street or near the entrances of any subway station. These umbrella peddlers never show up on a sunny day.


There are also expensive umbrellas in big shopping malls if you can¡¯t settle for a cheap one.
