Climate - Taiwan
In our opinion, autumn (September to November) and spring (March to May) are the best times of year to travel. Winter is usually a pleasant enough temperature in the South of the Island, but can be cold and damp in the north, whilst the summer can be uncomfortably hot. While planning your holiday to Taiwan, it should be remembered that the Monsoon season hits in late summer (usually late July through to the first half of September) and it usually hits harder on the east coast than in other parts of the country.
Taiwan is situated within an active Earthquake zone, being on the fault line between the Eurasian and the Philippine plate. Although there have been instances of powerful and devastating quakes, most notably in recent times in September 1999, most of the earthquakes that occur in Taiwan are nothing more than small tremors.
