Changsha has a humid subtropical climate. Summers from June to mid-September see average highs of more than 30 °C (July almost 34 °C on average) with nights around a sticky 25 °C. Combined with high humidity this is not the best time for a visit. Winters from December to March average around 10-12 °C during the day and still above zero at night, with occasional frost and possibly a bit of snow sometimes. As April to June is the wettest time of the year, the best months for a visit are probably from mid-September to November when temperatures around 20-25 °C and there are just some showers now and then.

China Post (中国邮政) is the official postal service of the People's Republic of China, operated by the State Postal Bureau of the People's Republic of China (website in Chinese only), and has more details about price to send letters, postcards and parcels, both domestically as well as internationally. The Chinese postal service is very good. Remember that in more remote places usually only one post office in a city can handle sending international boxes or letters. Also many times it might be worth having the name of the country you are trying to send to in Chinese characters. Post offices have a striking green logo and can easily be found everywhere in the cities. They are mostly open every day (including weekends!) from 8:00am to 6:00pm, though small offices might have shorter opening times, while the bigger ones in central and touristic areas are sometimes open during evenings as well.
