Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

is there anywhere with a DRY climate in Taiwan?

I'm living in Hualian for a few months now, and while it's a nice little city, i can't stand the wet, humid climate. from my research, much of Taiwan seems to be similar? (taipei a bit more, Taidong a bit less) is there anywhere with a drier/less humid climate?

west coast is out of consideration due to my surfing addiction.

Maybe the Hengchun/Kending area would be your best bet, assuming that works for surfing.

Taidong is way drier than Hualian. Move down there.
It's raining again here.

The south 3rd of the island is quite dry all winter. Everywhere is ridiculously hot and humid in the summer. You can't escape that but Nov-Mar is really nice down south.

Your research should tell you much of Taiwan isn't similar too! Central to South Taiwan (west coast) sees little rain and large amounts of sunshine throughout the year except for plum rains and typhoons.
