Whilst there are several times of the year to choose from, November is seen as the time to fly to Taiwan, however, it is possible to get good deals throughout the year. July tends to be the warmest period in Taiwan so if you are looking for sun or warmer climates then look to fly around this time. June is the wettest if you need to factor this in to your plans.

Taiwan’s recent history dates back to 1949 when Chiang Kai-shek and his defeated Kuomintang soldiers and followers, about 1.3 million people in all, fled mainland China. While China claims sovereignty over Taiwan and regards it as a province of China, Taiwan considers itself more Chinese than mainland China. Regardless of its complicated relationships, travellers taking Taiwan flights will discover a fascinating land with a rich cultural heritage, glorious, otherworldly lantern festivals and six national parks with dramatic volcano-and-hot-spring landscapes.

Taipei, the capital, boasts not only one of the world’s tallest skyscrapers (Taipei 101) but the National Palace Museum, which has the world’s best collection of traditional Chinese artefacts and the contents of the Forbidden Palace (in Beijing), the National Centre for Traditional Arts and Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall. The city also has lively night markets. The most famous is the Shilin Night Market where you can walk from stall to stall sampling Taiwanese cuisine.

An exciting country, just half-a-day away, there are reasonably cheap flights to Taiwan from airports around the UK.

Peak season:

Taiwan has a wonderful tradition of festivals and holidays. Festivals are ruled by the lunar calendar and include the Chinese New Year Festival, Lantern Festival (around 15th day of the first moon) when brightly coloured lanterns adorn temples or are carried by children to lantern competitions (Taipei has the most famous competition); the Dragon Boat Festival (in the fifth lunar month) when teams compete with each in the dragon-boat races (the festival repels evil spirits and disease); and the Ghost Festival, Taiwan’s Hallowe’en, when the dead are honoured with gifts of food.

Official holidays are on the Western calendar. Such holidays include Founding Day of the Republic of China; Tomb-Sweeping Day; 228 Memorial Day; Armed Forces Day; Taiwan’s Retrocession Day; and Double Tenth National Day.

Off season:

There’s not really a bad time to visit Taiwan, however, June, July and August are the warmest and most humid months of the year. Typhoon season is June-October and Taiwan is hit by about four typhoons each year.

What is good to know if travelling to Taiwan?

  • Taipei: the National Palace Museum is a treasure chest of ancient (some dating from the second millennia BC), priceless works of art. This museum and the Palace Museum in the Forbidden City in Beijing are part of the same original museum that was split up by the Chinese Civil War in the 1920s. The collection wandered for several years in search of a home evading first the Japanese army and later the Communists and opened in 1965. The collection is so vast that the museum can only display a small part of it at any one time. World-famous artifacts include the Jade Cabbage, a piece of jade carved into the shape of a Napa cabbage and a carved Olive-stone Boat.
  • The museum is close to Yangmingshan National Park, Shung Ye Museum of Formosan Aborigines, Martyrs’ Shrine and Shilin Night Market. A world-famous attraction is Taipei 101, which soars 508 metres (1,667ft) into the air. It is one-and-a-half times the height of the Eiffel Tower.
  • Puli, in the centre of Taiwan, is the base from which to explore the central mountains and Sun Moon Lake. The lake is one of Taiwan’s most famous attractions, a beautiful blue lake surrounded by green mountains. The eastern part of the lake is round, the sun, and the western part is shaped like a crescent, the moon. In the centre of the lake is an island, sacred to the native Shao people. There are seven hiking trails around the lake. The Hanbi Trail and Dachuhu Lake Trail are most highly recommended.
  • Coastal erosion has carved natural sandstone formations at Yehliu in northeast Taiwan. The “queen’s head” is the most famous.
  • There are six national parks (Yangmingshan, Kinmen, Kenting, Yushan – home of Mount Jade, almost 4,000 metres (about 13,000 ft), it is the highest mountain in Taiwan and northeast Asia, Taroko and Shei-Pa) and 13 national scenic areas (includes Sun Moon Lake; Yehliu – famous for its rock formations; Liyutan, in the East Rift Valley; Alishan, one of the five tallest mountains). There are almost 19,000 species of wildlife, some rare or endangered. These include the blue magpie, Mikado pheasant and Formosan black bear.
