Northern Taiwan is subtropical and southern Taiwan is tropical; the Tropic of Cancer runs through the middle of Taiwan. While winters are a usually a comfortable temperature it can feel very cold due to humidity and moisture in the air. Summers are hot and humid. A typical annual average temperature is 71.6 F (22 C). In Taipei, in the winter, average low and high temperatures range from 55 F (13 C) to 64 F (18 C), however the temperature can drop into the 40s F (5-8 C). In the summer, the average temperature in Taipei is 86 F (30 C); in the south temperatures may average in the mid 90s F (32-35 C). The temperature combined with humidity can make the weather feel very cold or very hot.

Recommended Clothing:
Casual and comfortable clothing is recommended. Western fashion is the norm in Taiwan.

Dress in layers. We recommend a light winter coat and perhaps a scarf for the mountain areas. While the temperature isn’t very low the humidity and breeze can make it feel much colder than it actually is. Comfortable walking shoes are a must.

Lightweight layers. We recommend light and loose fitting clothing; Taiwan is very humid in the summer and fitted t-shirts, for example, will cling to you. Comfortable walking shoes, sneakers and/or sandals are recommended. A long sleeve shirt and sweatshirt should keep you warm in higher elevation areas and shorts and long pants are a must. Taiwan is not a conservative country with regards to dress, so for women shorts and skirts can be any length you’re comfortable with. We recommend you bring what you’d be most comfortable wearing in hot and humid weather.
