Taiwan is suitable for traveling all year round; however, during certain traditional national holidays, in particular the Chinese New Year which falls around February each year, many shops and restaurants are closed and the island's roads are jammed as families returning home for the holidays. In some cases, accommodation costs may double. We therefore suggest that you come outside of these periods. The month of July on the Chinese calendar (approximately from the end of August to the dictates that begining of September) is the Ghost Month, during which local customs many activities, such as traveling, are regarded taboo, so this is one of the low seasons in Taiwan. On the other hand, during this period the cost of traveling is relatively low, and temples often host interesting traditional festivals and perform acts of worship. You might therefore consider coming to Taiwan around this time. The most pleasant season in Taiwan is around October and November, during which months the weather is nice and cool, so this is also a good time to visit Taiwan.
