Taiwan has a tropical climate. Cloudiness and general overcast skies are common year-round. The rainy season extends from June to August, during which typhoons may occur. Winters, on the other hand, are cool and dry, and high mountain areas may even be covered with some snow. The best time to visit Taiwan is autumn.

Pack appropriately for the season in which you will be traveling. Light, short-sleeved shirts and pants are suitable for the hot temperatures of the summer months; heavier clothes-long pants, long-sleeved shirts and sweaters, will be needed for winter.
