April - May ; October - December is the best time to visit Taiwan
These two time periods are considered to be the best times to visit Taiwan. Between April and May, the weather is warm and not at all humid, making it conducive for travelling around. Another reason is that the festival of the goddess Mazu's birthday is celebrated in April and this is a great time to be in Taiwan. Between October and December, the weather gets chilly and it does not even rain much.
