Since the 16th Century, Taiwan has been known to the West as Formosa (Beautiful Island). The climate in Taiwan is subtropical and it is an all-season traveller's destination with its annual average temperature of 22 C (72 F); minimum 12-17 C in the Winter (Dec.-Feb.). Late Winter in Taiwan is not only the best season for the Hot Springs, but is also a special opportunity to experience the celebration of Chinese New Year and the Taipei Lantern Festival, a three day festival starting on 23rd February 2005.
