When to Visit

Taiwan's subtropical climate means pleasant temperatures all year round, although, if you're after sun-soaked beaches, the summer months of June to September are best. However, this is also the rainy season, particularly in the south, so be prepared for sporadic showers.

The most agreeable weather is during spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November), when temperatures are mild and skies are generally clear. Autumn also heralds the arrival of spectacular autumnal colours in the mountainous regions of Taiwan, a picture-perfect setting for photography enthusiasts and nature lovers.
