Yiwu market is opening all the year round(including weekends), you can come at any time. Considering its nearby trade fairs, weather, business season…, the best time to visit Yiwu would be from March to June and from September to December. Avoid public holidays when Yiwu market shops are closed or half closed.
If you are coming for seasonal products, like Christmas decors, you'd better come before July. If you come in September, you would find most of the factories just can't take your orders simply because they get enough for this year.
The spring Canton Fair(April 15-19, April 23-27, May 1-5, 2010), East China Fair(01-10 March 2010), Hong Kong Gifts & Premium Fair (27-30 April 2010), Hong Kong International Jewellery Show (5 - 9 March 2010)… are all at this time, so you can visit Yiwu and these fairs together.
Yiwu market products are pretty complimentary to these fairs. So you can compare and enrich your products range.
The weather at this time is also quite pleasant. It's spring. The average temperature is 10C/50H-25C/77H. However, things that are not so good are: no cheap flights, no discount hotels… because it’s crowded.
Autumn Edition Canton Fair and Yiwu Fair are all held at the latter half of November each year, Autumn Edition Hong Kong Electronics Fair (13-16 Oct 2010), Autumn Edition Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (27-30 Oct 2010)… are all at this time.
So you can visit Yiwu and these fairs together. Yiwu market products are pretty complimentary to these fairs. Again you can compare and enrich your products range.
The weather at this time is very pleasant. It's autumn. The average temperature is 10C/50H-25C/77H. Things you’re not going to like that much are the same: no cheap flights, no discount hotels, people everywhere…
