Pollen Levels

There isn’t much talk or news about pollen levels in Taiwan. Probably because air pollution is a bigger concern.

Any online place to check pollen levels?

I’ve found that pollen only really bad in summers in places that have very dry climates, i.e., low humidity. So, most of Taiwan is humid in summer.
Think of the humid air as sort of “weighing” down the pollen.

It is a big concern in Japan. If anyone is allergic and plans to visit say March or April…bring medicine. Lots of it. You´ll need it.

Taiwan does not have such extensive floral fieleds in cities where people may keel over from the pollen. Pollution overall is a bigger concern all year round, so it gets the publicity.

Just don’t move to Linkou. A combination of the tree pollen from all the forests around coupled with the dampness which creates perfect environment for mold is absolutely killing me.
