Watch the city come to life at night as you experience Huahsi Night Market. Open for 50 years, the distinct market stands out because of the architectural style, with a traditional Chinese gate and red lanterns that line the roofed street. Known for Chinese herbs and medicine, food in the market is a guilty pleasure for gastronomes; find all kinds of strange delicacies like turtle testicles and snake penis, which earned the street its infamous name "snake alley." Plenty of restaurants offer fresh seafood (besides exotic snacks), so you fully experience Taiwan city nightlife.

  • It is not too much for tourists in May. There was no delicious food stalls, there's snakes and. We were here a foot massage, feel good, rather than pain.

  • Monga = night market next door in, here is very unique. Night this city has become the arcade, so very bright and distinctive though like a lot of rain. As a store, such as snakes and turtles (terrapin or) and crocodiles of tonic and adult adult toy and lingerie store. Massage parlor to another year, fortune teller shops, stores often do not know what they sell, but many can enjoy. The city that night, so children won't take too much more good. Just because a place like this in Japan did not not see once I am going to recommend.

  • On the north side of the Longshan Temple is the city is deep night. Suitable for tourists. Some restaurants to feed the snake or crocodile. Will be more likely to understand Japanese and tobotta each other. Please note that.

  • There's not much that's really interesting going on here, but there are a few interesting photo opportunities. The food is mostly unhygienic and the snake/turtle food shops cater to shock value, not quality food. The shops and vendors are mostly peddling cheap crap from China, or bootleg adult videos on DVD.
  • I've been here like 20 times and it never gets old. It is one of my favorite night markets in taiwan
  • Less touristy, more exotic. Smaller but things available can be a little bit more out-there - including snake!
  • not what it used to be due to animal rights the snakes are only for display now you may still get snake soup and all the drink varieties but they aren't that delicious. purely for kicks
  • Uses to be more lively....
