2019 Autumn Forecast: Where & When to Catch The Best Autumn Leaves in Taiwan

With cool weather and vast amounts of nature, Taiwan showcases its magnificent maple leaves in the autumn season.

Many visit Taiwan for the food, the mild to warm temperatures and its signature bubble teas. When the weather starts to cool off for the year-end season though, there is yet another new natural attraction to consider: watching maple leaves in a myriad of warm colours fall ever so gently to the ground. 

Autumn happens relatively late for Taiwan, starting from mid-September and lasting to December, giving those who missed the sightings in other destinations like South Korea and Japan, a second chance. 

With plenty of nature to see in Taiwan, you will be able to catch the ‘fall’ action from cities to the more distant, scenic countryside. So, if you are in Taiwan for the season, do check out these best places to see autumn leaves below!
