Best Time to Visit Taipei
Taipei enjoys excellent spring weather - temperatures are a cool and dry 20°C, rain is unlikely, and sunshine hours are numerous. This is an excellent time for hiking the city’s nearby mountains, exploring national parks and gardens, or soaking in natural outdoor hot springs. After spring, autumn is the next favourite season with tourists for similar reasons.
Taipei’s summer months from June to August are considered the city’s off-peak period for tourism, as the hot and muggy temperatures make outdoor activities uncomfortable to engage in. Most importantly, travellers are advised to avoid visiting the city during the typhoon-heavy months of June to September.
