Geography

Taipei is located north of Taiwan and is bordered by the Xindian River on the southern side and the Tamsui River on the western side. The central zones of the city are generally low lying while slopes on the south and east can reach 1120 m (3.675 feet) at Cising Mountain which is the highest extinct volcano in Taiwan. At the south east of the city there are the Songshan Hills and the Quingshui Ravine which form a boundary of green woods.

Climate

Taipei weather is mostly influenced by a monsoon which causes the city to have a humid subtropical climate. Taipei climate is characterized by hot summers which are humid and are often accompanies by rainstorms and typhoons. Winters are short and mild with lots of fog due to northeasterly winds which blow from the vast Siberian High which causes pooling of cooler air in the Taipei basin. Due to its geographical location, Taipei is affected by the Pacific Ocean and thus has a Pacific typhoon season which is between June and October.
