Hi MS HUI, both May & Sep. are good months for summer fashion. And May is better. The hotel in Taiwan is very good, 4 star would be comfortable enough.Whitney Liao Replied on 2013-01-07
Thanks for your enquiry!
Autumn is the best season to visit Taiwan as it is cool and dry, it gets hotter towards the end of April. For itinerary, Hualien and Kenting are famous for its natural landscapes while Taichung and Tainan for cultural and ancient sights, Taiwan no doubt a mixture of old and new. We are not familiar with car renting companies in Taiwan but these two on google look good for your reference, http://www.okcars.com.tw/ , http://www.oa118.com/ if you are looking for driver service, you will need a helping hand from a travel agency, I am more than happy to give you a quote if your destinations are settled.
