Macau weather should be on your pre-departure checklist. If you want to get the most of Macau, then you should prepare yourself well.
Before traveling, we do our research about hotels, itineraries, tickets and places to eat. And one more essential factor to take note is the weather. You want to make sure that you are traveling in the best season. So, that you can enjoy scenes that are dependent to weathers. And more importantly, avoid getting stranded at the ferry terminals or airports.
Macau weather has 4 seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Though Macau is only a small country, a one or two day tour to Macau is enough. Yet, you have to make sure that the weather cooperates to enjoy the rest of it.
Spring in Macau is from March to April and sometimes extends until May. The average temperature during this season is around 18 to 23 degree Celcius. It is sunny most of the time with occasional rains. Macau also experiences foggy days which is a common reason for a delay in ferry operations.
Late in May until August is the long summer season in Macau. It sometimes extends until September. This is the hottest season in Macau. The temperature average from 23 to 29 degree Celcius. This is also the “typhoon” season in Macau. So, for travelers, this is one of the seasons that you must avoid if you are planning a trip to Macau. Still, this is a perfect season for outdoor activities like swimming at Hac Sa beach or Cheoc Van beach.
For me, this is the best time to visit Macau. The autumn season usually starts from October to December. It is perfectly cooler than summer and a little warmer than winter. The lovely weather is perfect visit famous landmarks like Ruins of St. Pauls, and the Senado Square
From late December until the Chinese New Year’s month is the winter season. Macau’s weather temperature can sometimes drop below zero degrees Celcius. It is the time of the year when the streets of Macau are less crowded. There is no snow in Macau. But the temperature might drop too low, making it hard to roam around Macau. Thick winter clothes are advised to be worn during this season.
