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.
