In October, Shanghai steps into autumn. With only a few hot days left, the temperature begins to drop and eventually becomes cool. When autumn comes, leaves turn yellow, adding a wonderful dimension to the scenery in the city.
Wear thick coats, jackets and warm trousers in the mornings and evenings, as well as during late October. Long-sleeved shirts or coats may be enough in the sun.
A Walking Tour to the French Concession
