Perceiving Tropical Sunshine
Taiwan enjoys warm weather all year round. Weather conditions fluctuate during spring and winter, while in summer and autumn the weather is relatively stable. Taiwan is extremely suitable for traveling, as the annual average temperature is a comfortable 22 degrees Celsius with the lowest temperatures in the lowlands generally ranging from 12 to 17 degrees Celsius (54-63 Fahrenheit). With the exception of a few mountain areas, no snow can be seen in Taiwan. When visiting Taiwan during the ”plum rains” season of daily downpours, remember to carry an umbrella. Although it might seem romantic to have a stroll in the rain, it is mood-ruining to travel when soaking wet. During the summer (June to August), typhoons sometimes hit the country.
It is highly recommended to keep an eye on weather reports because weather conditions are often unpredictable, especially when typhoons hit Taiwan. In addition, the roaring waves along the coast are not to be regarded as one of Taiwan’s tourist scenes. During the autumn season (September to October), enjoy the cool and comfortable weather, while Taiwan’s winters are relatively warm and short (November to February). The sporadic cold fronts that reach Taiwan are greatly welcomed by the island’s hot-spring lovers. In short, Taiwan, where it always seems to be spring, is a perfect travel destination!
