  • 因為爸爸是基隆人,所以小時候就常常有機會往基隆跑。認真講起來,基隆夜市有不少我年少時的回憶。十幾年來,變化很大,東西品質一般般,與其他夜市大同小異,但廟口那裏還是保留住年少時的基隆感,來這裡並不能太期待吃到很特別的東西,但如果是想來感受一下基隆文化以及人滿滿的夜市風貌,這裡還是值得一來。

  • 選擇很多!!! 特色小吃皆有特別之處! 值得一試。如是開車前往需多花時間找尋停車位或是私人停車場。如搭火車站或其他大眾運輸可能較便利許多。

  • A nightmarket which is easily identifiable by the yellow lantern at the entrance. A worthy place to visit after your trip to stations along the pingxi line. The prices of food tend to be a little slightly cheaper than taipei, and variety is slightly more than those commonly add in Taipei.
  • From Jiufen/Shifen/PingXi must stop by here to have a seafood dinner before heading back to Taipei! Easy Access from Ruifang Station, directly take the bus 787 or 788. As for Banana like me, there is English name of the hawker stall of what they selling is very convenient. There is even a Temple in the market... May go for a pray after having dinner. To Vegan like me, there is 2 hawker that sell vegetarian foods. So, do not worry. To get back to Taipei, go to the Keelung Station and must ask the counter properly which train to on board and which platform. Easy pass (aka 悠遊卡) can be use here also.
  • Keelung market was just okay. We came here after a trip from Jiufen. Keelung is known for seafood but a few of the stands we went to weren't particularly great. It's always nice to check out local delicacies though.
  • Open night market with good varieties of products and food. Food stall 12 offers good food and service. Beware of stall 22 - very rude and arrogant.
  • I have to say, after visiting night markets in many cities around Taiwan, I was a bit shocked to see the state of hygiene in Keelung's Miaokou Night Market (基隆廟口夜市). On first glance, the market looks exciting, with lots of delicious and interesting foods on sale, with some foods unique to Keelung. However, one big problem is the underground waste-water sewerage system running along the sides of the roads where the market vendors set up their stalls. Due to the shallowness of the system, the smell of human excrement pervades the air around the market and the surroundings. Sewerage systems tend to attract rats, and the presence of rats in close proximity to food preparation areas is a human health risk. To some extent, rats are unavoidable in urban areas, but the juxtaposition of the smell of sewerage and food should surely not be something that happens in a developed country in the 21st century? Perhaps this is a recent problem that's affecting the city? In addition to the smell, the amount of garbage on the streets around the night market was incredible. Empty bottles, plastic coverings, hundreds of cigarette butts, discarded food wrappings, and huge amounts of all kinds of rubbish can be found on the streets around the night market. I'm not sure whether this is because there are no garbage bins available, or whether it's because the day that we visited just happened to have a lot of people disposing garbage on the street. I would love to recommend this night market, as its location makes it ideal for fresh seafood, but the lack of street cleanliness and hygiene problems make it hard to really recommend above other night markets to be found elsewhere in Taiwan.
