Things to Do in Taiwan in November

With the mild weather and little rain, November is no doubt the best month to visit Taiwan. It is the low season when you get best discounts on accommodation at major tourist sights (up to 50%) yet the high season for hot-spring hotels. Even though the island doesn’t really experience snow (but anything is possible in these days of abnormal weather at abnormal times…), the weather can still be chilly, especially in the mountainous areas. If Taiwan’s subtropical climate scares you off, a visit in November will be a sheer delight.

Where should you go if you plan your Taiwan trip in November? We have got you some ideas here. Read on and be inspired!

The Taiwan Open of Surfing takes place every November in the sleepy fishing village of Jinzun on Taiwan’s southeast coast, with hundreds of local and international surfers competing for the grand prize. This event helps raise Taiwan’s international reputation as a surf destination and foster the local surf culture. If you happen to be a diehard surfer, now you have a better option than the more hyped-up places like Bali or Phuket.

Earthquakes are common in Taiwan due to its location in a seismically active zone of the Pacific basin. On September 21, 1999, one of the deadliest earthquakes in recorded history registered 7.3 on the Richter Scale hit the island, killed more than 2,400 people, destroyed or damaged thousands of buildings and left an estimated 100,000 people homeless. A visit to the 921 Earthquake Museum of Taiwan in the city of Taichung, an area affected by the earthquake, where some of the wreckage are preserved and serve as a haunting reminder of the tragedy, will show you how earthquakes happen, and specifically, what happened on the fateful day that it struck Taiwan.

Most countries do not possess mountains higher than three thousand meters. Even if they do, visitors still have to climb with heavy equipment in order to get on the clouds. However, in Taiwan, it only takes a three-hour drive from downtown Taichung to reach Wuling, a saddle between the Main Peak and the East Peak of Hehuanshan at an altitude of 3275 meters. While in Hehuanshan, never miss the chance to visit Lishan Guest House, the highest palace-style hotel in Taiwan standing at the altitude of 1,935 meters, which used to be the dwelling house of the late president Chiang Kai-shek.
