Winter officially starts from December, but visitors to Taiwan in December can still enjoy most outdoor attractions as the weather stays mild. However, there is a very remarkable difference in temperature between day and night. Expect the unexpected, in today’s climatic chaos, and be prepared.

The island is very vibrant, full of festivity but still in working condition. Nothing is closed on Christmas day. Nothing. So put your mind at rest and enjoy your trip of a lifetime.
