  • The many stalls of the Keelung night Market look very professional and have been in the camps for years. Unlike many other Taiwan night markets, they always sell the same food, but many stalls are easy to eat, so be smart.

  • We visited the night market the first night in Keelung. The street food was very, very good! Non-stop grazing and sampling for about two hours. Had some of the best roast pork and grilled steak in Tai...  more »
  • A lot of shops have been concentrated in the temple night market, in the evening there are a lot of things to taste, we tried the stone lobster, is a way to cook, that is, the lobster in a full of hot stone barrels cooked, a little wine, very special way! In addition, the night market did not open late, we in the evening more than 10 times, there is the continuity of the door, so it is better to come early!

  • Pretty much the same like other night markets in Taipei but this is a much more organized. The key highlight item is the short pork sausages which was simply addictive. The much sought after “Nutritious Sandwich” was decent in taste (However it is definitely not as healthy as advertised). Crab soup was decent just to warm up the stomach. Had a very bad experience with the oyster omelette stall as the cook did not allow us to take photos and the food was just too bland and slimy. All in all I do not think it’s worth traveling from Taipei just for this nightmarket.
  • One of the best night markets in Taiwan. Located near a temple, the Keelung Night Market has a lot to offer including a lot of classic Taiwanese dishes such as braised pork rice and Taiwanese barbecue. There are signs above the stores in English and Japanese however the menu items are in Chinese so you may have to try your luck with reading it or just ask anyone nearby; don't be afraid to ask, we're friendly.
  • Fortunately, our cruise ship docked close to the area. Coming back from Taipei we explored Keelung and accidentally found this place. They were just preparing for the evening as they started to close off the road. There were a variety of food stalls enticing you to try their specialties. They had roast pig to stinky tufu. It was a nice experience to see this location.
  • Really fantastic night market with a variety of dishes about 30 minutes outside of Taipei. All the food stalls have a headline in English, although the menus themselves are in Chinese. I really recommend the braised pork rice (luroufan) and the tempura fish paste. ItWe didn't get a chance to try the other seafood, but considering it's on the seaside, you really can't go wrong with any seafood dishes here. Parking around here is near to impossible so its best to go a few blocks away! Also there are a number of great shops all around the area, so you could totally spend a couple hours meandering the streets
  • When we arrived here some of the food stalls were just preparing to open up for the evening. They also started to close off the road from automobiles. We didn't get the opportunity to sample the food since our time was short. However, they did looked quite delicious.

Where to stay in Keelung

Most visitors head to Keelung on a day trip from Taipei, with the port city linked up by bus and rail to the capital and journeys taking about half an hour by road. If you're intent on staying the night, Keelung offers a decent number of accommodations located primarily around the main harbor area. There, you'll find high-rise hotels enjoying views of the city and the water. Humbler and less expensive guesthouses on the side streets leading away from the harbor provide a good option for those on a budget.
