"Typhoons" Taiwan Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Kyle-Taiwan

Taiwan Warnings and Dangers: 44 reviews and 33 photos

Typhoons come every year, like a hurricane in the states. July to November is the season, but most are in Aug/Sept. Taiwan is quite safe in typhoons, and devastation like you see in China, Philippines and even the USA form hurricanes is just not seen.

you should avoid going outside though, things blowing around can be dangerous.

The real bad thing about typhoons are you cant rains, and i mean REALLY rains, and blows any sight seeing is ruined. sometimes you can still go shopping and such indoors, but going to and from, use common sense and avoid walking/scooters etc.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
