Au­tumn is of­ten con­sid­ered to be the most beau­ti­ful sea­son in Bei­jing. Colour­ful leaves and pleas­ant weather abound dur­ing this pe­riod. Bei­jing's res­i­dents like to visit ur­ban parks and sub­ur­ban moun­tains to en­joy the pic­turesque scenery at this time of year.

In the late au­tumn, the re­main­ing leaves fall from the trees, cre­at­ing bleak land­scapes. This is of course a com­mon sub­ject de­picted in ar­ti­cles, po­ems and paint­ings by both an­cient and mod­ern writ­ers and painters.

Many poets cre­ated au­tumn-themed po­ems to ex­press nos­tal­gia and un­hap­pi­ness. How­ever, Bei­jing's au­tumn is of­ten con­sid­ered to be its most beau­ti­ful sea­son. Colour­ful leaves and pleas­ant weather can be found dur­ing this pe­riod. Fall­ing leaves swirl in the wind and turn the city into a vi­brant place. At dusk, red maple leaves gleam and look red­der than flow­ers in bloom.

Bei­jing's res­i­dents like to go to ur­ban parks and sub­ur­ban moun­tains to en­joy the pic­turesque scenery of the au­tumn. They feel lucky to live near beau­ti­ful, au­tum­nal land­scapes; nu­mer­ous, his­tor­i­cal and cul­tural re­mains; and daz­zling, mod­ern land­mark build­ings.
