Taiwan Weather in April

Weather: The rainy season begins with continuous drizzles towards the end of the month, but it is rather warm in April. Average low and high temperatures are 19 °C (66 °F) and 23 °C (74 °F).

Clothing: A long-sleeve shirt or even a T-shirt is enough for the day time, but at early morning or evening you will need a cardigan or sweater.

If you travel to mountainous areas, you will need a coat. Bring an umbrella and mosquito repellant, because after the rain there are many mosquitoes.

Things to Do

April is a fine time to visit outdoor places in Taiwan since the rainfall is moderate and the temperatures are pleasant. See the blooming gardens, new growth, and verdant mountains.

Taipei views from Elephant Hill Park: Just a 20 minute walk away from Taipei 101, there is a small natural park with walking paths leading to various hills. The paths are paved and lighted at night, and it offers stunning spring scenery. Elephant Hill (象山) is the main hill. It is 183 meters (600 feet) high and affords views of the city and the Taipei 101 nearby.

Explore the Ximending Night Market: Ximending is both a taste and cultural experience. It is known for its mix of Japanese and Taiwanese cultures and restaurants. There are old Japanese buildings such as Matsu Temple and Red House Theater. It is an ideal place to find souvenirs.

It doubles as a national garden area. There are hot springs, volcanic sulfur vents, and many nature trails to explore.

Yangmingshan is a big national park with world-class scenery and facilities such as campgrounds. You can walk to the sightseeing observation points that were constructed near the sulfur fumaroles.

Hi Ruoxi, the temperature is around 15-20℃, long sleeves and short sleeve shirt and long short pants would be ok. But the temperature in the night and early morning will be lower, so you can also bring a light coat. Whitney Liao replied on 2014-03-14
