Winters aren’t too bad in Taizhou, it never gets too cold with an average temperature of 4 C (39 F) to 8 C (46 F) with a rainy season in May and June and a little in early September.
Historically Taizhou was always an area that was pretty inaccessible by road however today is quite a different story. As the city grew economically it greatly improved its transport systems during the late 1990s and early 2000s.
Taizhou shares an airport with Yangzhou and is perfect for flights to other major cities in China such as Beijing, Guangzhou, Xian, Xiamen, Chengdu, Kunming, Shenzhen, Shenyang, and Harbin.
