Taiwan Climate & Weather

Taiwan has sub-tropical climate with temperatures that vary from hot and humid in the south, to cooler in the north and inland mountainous region. Sudden rain showers fall all over the country, so rainwear is an essential part of any visitor's luggage. The driest time of year is autumn (September and October), which leads into a short, generally damp and chilly winter when snow falls on the island's mountain peaks. Summer temperatures can reach 90ºF (35ºC) at the coast, and typhoons can strike during this time of year.
