The best seasons for traveling to Macau

The best seasons for traveling to Macau are autumn and winter (January-February, and October-December).

Macau has warm and rainy weather conditions with an obvious division between the humid and dry seasons due to its coastal region location. Spring lasts from April to May, summer from May to September, autumn from September to December and winter from January to March. It’s hot and rainy in summer while cold and dry in winter, warm and foggy in spring while sunny and cloudless in autumn.

Macau has the coldest month in January with an average temperature of 14.6℃, but with the lowest temperature above 5℃. So, travelers from the northern part of China find it warm and comfortable even in the winter. All you need are cardigans, sweaters and coats. 

Summer (the rainy season) lasts from May to September is the off-season for the local tourism industry. Although it’s hot in summer, you can get a chance to go swimming and surfing in the Pantai Pasir Hitam during this season.


Typhoons are the regular visitors in summer. Once they approach Macau and the No. 8 signal is hoisted, flights and sails between Hong Kong and Macau will be cancelled temporarily. Chances are high that the Governor Nobre de Carvalho Bridge and the Estrada do Istmo Road will be closed as a result of the typhoon. If you travel to Macau in summer, you should watch the weather closely.

If you go in the summer, you should equip yourself with lightweight and portable cotton clothes or T-shirts. If you go in the winter, you need to bring wool based clothes and coats with you because it is cold. Lastly, if you go in the spring or autumn, it is advised to bring sweaters or jackets with you.
