Taiwan Geography, Climate, and Weather

Taiwan, situated in the Pacific Ocean is about midway between Korea and Japan to the north and Hong Kong and Philippines to the south, and is a natural gateway for travelers to and within Asia. Shaped a little like a leaf, Taiwan is 160km off the coast of China.
The rest of the island is made up of steep mountains, terraced flatlands and rocky coastline. Taiwan province includes the Penghu Archipelago, a group of 64 islands, as well as 21 other islands.

Taiwan's climate is subtropical. The rainy season from May through September usually signifies the start of summer.
However, it can get quite hot and humid in summer. Winters (December through February) are short and mild although it rains almost all the time. Snow falls only on the island's higher mountains.
