Climate and Average Weather in Taiwan

Taiwan has several tropical and humid subtropical climates, with the highest mountain peaks experiencing a cooler tundra climate.

Climatically, Taiwan is a fascinating destination, with its location very much determining its weather and climate. The central mountain range on the island of Taiwan means that the western side of the country is less affected by the monsoon, while the north and east are considerably more cloudy and wetter.

On the southern side of Taiwan, because of the higher temperatures, there are mostly tropical climates: Temperatures range between 25 and 34 degrees Celsius (77-93°F). The winter months (from December to February) are slightly colder, but are very pleasant.
