Road Signs

Main roads signs are labelled both in Chinese and Latin. This makes it easier to identify cities and townships for people not familiar with the Chinese writing system.


Taiwan uses a multi-tier system to label their roads.

National highways are the highest tier. They are labelled using numbers 1-10. On road signs, they are depicted using a figure of a plum blossom (the national flower).

The second tier are the provincial highways. Numbers 1-39 are labelled using a blue sign. Road numbers 61-88 use a red sign with a blue border.

Roads running through counties use numbers 101-205. These are depicted on a white sign. Some road number may have 甲 (or in some cases 乙 or 丙) appended, which should be read as a (or b and c, respectively). These indicate branches of the road.

At the lowest level, there are township and district roads. These can be recognised by a prefix (a Chinese character) to indicate the region. They are generally inconvenient to use to identify a location, unless the region is known.
