Taiwan weather & when to go: July
The story of June continues into July with ever increasing heat but with it comes increased rainfall and and an increased chance of tropical typhoons. In fact July is both the hottest and one of the wettest months of the year in Taiwan.
July's weather in detail
Temperatures soar to steamy highs of 30°C in Taipei, whilst in Kenting and the tropical south, the south west monsoon brings even warmer temperatures that regularly push the mercury to 32°C, alongside high humidity levels. Travelling and sightseeing in Taiwan is a sticky business in July.
Afternoon storms are a frequent occurance during July and there is a high chance of typhoons, which may be good news for surfers heading to Jin Shan and Baishawan in the far north of the island, but it also means the country is prone to flooding in low-lying areas.
How do the local Taiwanese cope? They head for the waterparks: Mala Bay Water Park in northerly Taichung County and the Blue Lagoon Water Park in southern Kaohsiung City come recommended!
