Taiwan Weather in August

Weather: August is the hottest month of the year in Taiwan, with average low and high temperatures of 28 °C (82 °F) and 31 °C (87 °F), often above 35 °C (95 °F) at noon. There are frequent afternoon thunderstorms and occasionally a typhoon.

Clothing: Wear any summer clothes, like skirts, shorts, and T-shirts. Sun protection, umbrella and mosquito repellant are needed. If you travel to mountainous areas, you need to bring a light coat.

Things to Do

Kenting Beach: Summer is a time to head for the beaches. Kenting National Park, on the southern tip of Taiwan, is the perfect place to go for a holiday in nature. It offers stunning tropical vistas, spectacular ocean views, and a tremendous array of both flora and fauna. 

The large 300-square-kilometer (100-square-mile) national park is a place for both nature hiking and basking on the beach. You can stay at one of the resorts in the area. When a storm at sea kicks it up, you can surf on the waves. Scuba diving is another option.

It takes about 4 or 5 hours to travel by bullet train and bus from Taipei. Taxis from the train station are faster.

See Taipei views from Elephant Hill ParkJust a 20-minute walk from Taipei 101, you can find a small natural park with a hill and walking paths. Elephant Hill (象山) is 183 meters (600 feet) high, and it is an easy climb up stairs for about 15 minutes. The rewards are paths around the hill and into nearby hills, and views of the city include the Taipei 101 nearby.

Enjoy the Beautiful Scenery of Taroko Gorge:

The national park is one of Taiwan's most popular and offers both sightseeing vantage points near roads and backcountry hiking. Summer temperatures average a comfortable 25 °C (77 °F). So its the time to be outdoors.

Travel: August is a high travel month. Tickets for flights to Taiwan and between Taiwan and China may be difficult to get.
