Don't Chinese use Celsius? Why on earth would anyone give a temperature and not say whether they mea ...

China does report temperatures in C. I can tell you how miserable you will be if you visit China in winter. As said before, you can go to Beijing and feel totally comfortable throughout winter. The buildings have sturdier walls and are equipped with heating systems. The temperature right now is minus 5 C, according to some source or other. But you won't feel it much if you are dressed appropriately when going out.

In Guangdong it is quite different. the chill factor of those northeast monsoons will make you shiver. The temperature can fall to as low as 2 degrees C. That is too warm for precipitation to freeze into snow but it is worse than in Beijing where snow is covering the ground. Your house will have no heater except if you own it and installed electric heaters or aircons. The stone floors seem to freeze the blood in your legs. Chill comes off the concrete walls and cold draughts blow through cracks in the home. People wear four, five layers of thick winter clothes and still go sniff-snuff and cough cough. The spring rains may set in any day now. It's the flu and cold peak season. Chinese should adopt the German habit of drinking mulled wine now.
