Taiwan Weather in October

Weather: Autumn is the best time of the year for travel, with pleasant weather. Average low and high temperatures are 23 °C (74 °F) and 26 °C (79 °F), cooling a bit from the summer heat, especially in the north.

Clothing: Summer clothes are suitable during the day, but in early morning or evening you may need a light coat or a cardigan. It still rains occasionally, so umbrella and mosquito repellant are needed.

Things to Do

The Mid-Autumn Festival: The annual holiday is the second biggest traditional Chinese festival. It usually falls in September, but occasionally the public holiday is in early October. You can take advantage of Taiwan's subtropical climate to enjoy the festival in comfort. Mountain climbing in autumn is very popular among the local people.

Visit the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial and its plaza: This cultural site is one of Taipei’s favorite tourist attractions, on a par with Hanoi’s Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and the Sun Yat Sen Mausoleum. It is as big and imposing. However, unlike the two mausoleums, he isn’t buried there.

The extensive gardens and paths make for a pleasant walk. The museum is a place to learn about the history of China and the life of this important government official.

Shilin Night Market: Discover the street snacks and shop. It is a fine way to spend a fall evening. Shilin has the biggest night market in Taipei, and it is known mainly for the variety of food. See how many of Taiwan's favorite foods, beverages and desserts you can eat.

Taroko Gorge: One of Taiwan's most popular national parks has a long narrow gorge surrounded by very tall peaks with big forests that turn color with the season. Entry is free, but you need a permit for entering the wilderness areas. Contact us for help to book train tickets.

Dear David, Kending is in the south of Taiwan, it is not cold during whole year. From May to September, the average temperature is about 25-30℃(77-86℉) and it usually rains heavily. From Oct. to Apr. in the next year, it is about 18-25℃(64.4-77℉), I suggest you could travle there during this period. Lussie Lu replied on 2013-06-18
