Rain and wind are the main themes of February weather in Shanghai, but the temperatures may be slightly warmer than in January. Besides, it may be misty from time to time in the mornings.


Down coats, sweaters, gloves, thick pants, and warm shoes are advisable for February, and an umbrella should be brought with you at any time, as it rains frequently.

Travel Advice

Experience Yuyuan's Lantern Festival

The Chinese Lantern Festival is celebrated on January 15 of the Chinese lunar calendar, when the first full moon night appears in the Chinese lunar year, symbolizing the return of the spring. On that day, lanterns with the central theme of the zodiac animal-of-the-year dangle on the pavilions, shops, and residences in Yuyuan Garden, and create a picturesque scene. You can enjoy many traditional shows embodying the theme and will have plenty of dishes to choose from.

When spring comes, it confronts us with the delightful scene of a plum tree garden containing 3,000 trees in 30 varieties, plus lovely pink cherry blossoms, slightly later in March.

Visit the Temple Fair

The temple fair in the City God Temple presents a glowing scene of Chinese lanterns and lights. It is generally conducted around the time of the Lantern Festival ( on January 15 of the Chinese lunar calendar). The activity attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists from home and abroad and involves traditional theatrical performances, fireworks, gongs and drums, incense burning, and refreshments.
