Weather at the moment
Weather all year round
Being straddling the Tropic of Cancer, Taiwan has weather related to its subtropical climate in the north and tropical climate in the south. The average annual rainfall is 2,500 mm. Summers are very hot and winters are mild (even hot in the south). At an altitude of more than 2,500 m, there are very few snowfalls in winter. The average temperature in Taiwan, at least in Taipei, is around 23°C.
Taiwan's currency is the new Taiwan dollar or, in short, NT$. If the cost of living in Taiwan is incredibly low, especially compared to Western countries, keep in mind that not all Taiwanese people are rolling in gold, and that many families have a modest existence reduced to essentials
To travel to Taiwan, no visa is required for a stay of less than 90 days. For European nationals, a valid passport is sufficient.
Heat. Taiwan's subtropical climate can be difficult for some people to tolerate, especially in summer. In case of intense physical exertion during cycling or hiking, it is necessary to drink large quantities of water to avoid any risk of dehydration. The nights are very hot, and the hotels are equipped with air conditioning and, when this is not the case, at least with fans, most often hanging from the ceiling
Mosquitoes. Mosquito is the common name given to the approximately 7,000 species classified in the culicidae family. Not all of them attack humans. However, alongside the harmless cousin, 300 species like to feed to our detriment and about a hundred species are vectors of diseases, sometimes serious like dengue fever or Japanese encephalitis.
Food hygiene. In most large cities, water is drinkable, but local authorities do not prevent them from advising people to drink it only after it has been boiled
