Where does the sun rise in Taiwan?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Taiwan is Yilan in the region of Taiwan. There, the sun rises at 5:04 am and sets at 6:46 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Jincheng (Fukien) at 7:00 pm.

Duration of the sunset

The distance from the equator and the path of the sun determines not only the time of sunrise and sunset. The farther a country is from the equator, the more oblique the sun's path is to the horizon. And this causes a different duration that a sunset takes. Taipei lies on the 25th degree of northern latitude and is therefore quite far away from the equator. While a sunset near the equator only lasts about 20 minutes, in Taiwan this period averages 25 minutes. In June, it's about 26 minutes in Taipei, while in December it's 25 minutes.
