Taiwan is a warm destination year-round and doesn't experience a low season, so almost any time of the year can be good for a visit. However, the summer typhoon season can impact travel.
- high season: December to August
- shoulder season: September to November
Taiwan offers a warm climate throughout the year, with an average of 72 degrees. However, a few scattered showers occur in the spring. Summer is typhoon season, so be sure to check all weather reports before traveling.
In June, tourism surges during the Computex Taipei (Taipei International Information Technology Show), the world's second biggest IT show and the largest in Asia. Chinese New Year is a major annual event that attracts large crowds.
Hotels, restaurants, and shops remain open throughout the year, even on Chinese New Year.
When to Save
The shoulder season can be a more economical time to visit.
When to Book
Book at least three months in advance for travel during high season and one month in advance for all other times.
