(EB Takeover Day 3 – Taiwan 🇹🇼) Summer heat? That’s right, when you come to Taiwan in semester 1, you’ll be able to experience the transition between summer, through a transient autumn and into the start of winter. Of course, this means a whole range of activities to do each season, and undoubtedly careful planning to travel to places more suitable for the climate!
In the summer, temperatures may soar as high as 30 degrees, so don’t forget to pack some lighter wear in addition to preparation for Taiwan’s winter too! As it enters the colder season, it might start to rain more frequently as well, with stronger winds, so do be prepared to deal with the sharp change in weather!
But while the sun’s still strong, I’d recommend going down to Kenting, a distant forested area carved around the southern edge of Taiwan popular for the clean beaches and waves. Under the summer heat, you’d be able to imagine the wonderful feeling of soaking in the water and walking along the coastlines! It’s merely a bus ride from the city of Kaoshiung!
