Best Time to Visit Taiwan

Taiwan has a subtropical monsoon climate with wet, humid summers and short, relatively mild winters although it often snows on the highest peaks. As far as the weather is concerned, the best time to visit Taiwan is between April and June as well as September to November when it is pleasantly warm and not as crowded. The peak season (most expensive) for tourists is actually in July and August but it is extremely hot and humid then. The fall season sees the entire country beginning to cool down and there is much less rain during this period. Spring is a beautiful season as the colours are at their best, especially at Taroko National Park and Yangmingshan National Park. Towards the end of May and into June, the rain starts to increase with June being the wettest month in Taiwan. Overall, the north of the country tends to be somewhat cooler and wetter than the south.
