Weather

Also known as the Windy City due to the vigorous winds that constantly blow in from the Straits of Taiwan, Hsinchu’s weather is pretty much cool most of the time. During summertime, the city is frequented by travelers while the amount slightly lessens during winter. However, travelers are eager to witness the Lunar New Year celebrations held at this time so they did not mind the cold weather very much.

Tip: be sure to pack more warm jackets if you plan to visit towards the end of November to February. Typhoons are common from July to October, and the rainfall may somewhat dampen your travel schedule so be sure to plan in advance.

Getting Around

Getting around Hsinchu is fairly easy. The city is not a very large one, so you can hop on one of the buses plying the different routes in Hsinchu for a cheap way to enjoy a tour of the city. Otherwise, most attractions are easy to reach by foot, especially if you depart from the old East Gate. Tip: If you get lost, you can easily find your way to the gate and have your guide pick you up.
