    Simon, 25 years old was there in April

    I lived in Taichung from August to January. There mostly super weather, very resistant and only from the middle of December a jacket became necessary.
    Then February to August in Taipei. The weather there is very changeable. Wednesday 30° and sun, Thursday 18° cloudy. Friday again pleasant at 25°. Generally much more rain and colder.

    Weather Rating: 2 stars – Tricky
