When is the best time to book a flight to Taiwan?

The price you pay for your flight to Taiwan may vary depending on when you book. For the best chance of a lower fare, look to book 58 days in advance of your trip. Fares are likely to increase a fortnight or so before your departure date.

Taiwan’s recent history dates back to 1949 when Chiang Kai-shek and his defeated Kuomintang soldiers and followers, about 1.3 million people in all, fled mainland China. While China claims sovereignty over Taiwan and regards it as a province of China, Taiwan considers itself more Chinese than mainland China. Regardless of its complicated relationships, travellers taking Taiwan flights will discover a fascinating land with a rich cultural heritage, glorious, otherworldly lantern festivals and six national parks with dramatic volcano-and-hot-spring landscapes.

Taipei, the capital, boasts not only one of the world’s tallest skyscrapers (Taipei 101) but the National Palace Museum, which has the world’s best collection of traditional Chinese artefacts and the contents of the Forbidden Palace (in Beijing), the National Centre for Traditional Arts and Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall. The city also has lively night markets. The most famous is the Shilin Night Market where you can walk from stall to stall sampling Taiwanese cuisine.

An exciting country, just half-a-day away, there are reasonably cheap flights to Taiwan from airports around the UK.

When is the best time to fly to Taiwan?

Peak season:

Taiwan has a wonderful tradition of festivals and holidays. Festivals are ruled by the lunar calendar and include the Chinese New Year Festival, Lantern Festival (around 15th day of the first moon) when brightly coloured lanterns adorn temples or are carried by children to lantern competitions (Taipei has the most famous competition); the Dragon Boat Festival (in the fifth lunar month) when teams compete with each in the dragon-boat races (the festival repels evil spirits and disease); and the Ghost Festival, Taiwan’s Hallowe’en, when the dead are honoured with gifts of food.

Official holidays are on the Western calendar. Such holidays include Founding Day of the Republic of China; Tomb-Sweeping Day; 228 Memorial Day; Armed Forces Day; Taiwan’s Retrocession Day; and Double Tenth National Day.

Off season:

There’s not really a bad time to visit Taiwan, however, June, July and August are the warmest and most humid months of the year. Typhoon season is June-October and Taiwan is hit by about four typhoons each year.
