  • Night market with a roof so guests can enjoy shopping even on a rainy day. Night city heart zones along snacks and fruit, souvenir shop, the basement restaurants, on the second floor toilet, parking. Tired of the benches here and there, so can break even. From there side, lined with stalls, tailor, Shoemaker, choreographed.

  • No wonder its one of the most famous night markets. the place is massive and will definitely require about 3-4 hours in order to complete the whole market. Its best to plan your route on google so you don't go to the same lane. There are many famous foods there like the hot star chicken and many stores selling snow ice. Be sure to try some of their street games. i personally did the prawning which will require patience but was generally really fun. best to go from 7pm so that you have the full duration to complete the market.
  • Large night market with lotsa food. Although it's kinda easy to lost ur way in there but there's lotsa things to shop too ~ REMEMBER NOT TO BUY CUT FRUITS there!! We ask for 3 different fruits per portion, they gave us 3 portion per fruits. They say we have 3 ppl so 3 portion is correct. It cost us 1200Nt... After that we heard from e other shop the fruit sellers are notorious in e night market.. Other then that then it's fine, it's 1 of e must visit night market in Taipei for me. Try e 恶魔鸡排 too, it's definitely much more better than e 豪大大鸡排.
  • A fun way to experience Night Market culture. Perhaps not every food stall fully sanitary, but still there are many good choices. Try the "tian bu la" dish, and the fried chicken patty "yan su ji"
  • “Must see night market” It's an area to spend a few hours when in Taipei. There's souvenirs for sale, small gadgets, fruit, fresh and dried and lots of food to eat. Apart from the outdoor food stands there's a basement food court packed with many many vendors for food. You can bargain the prices. You can go around first decide what you want to buy and find one stands that has most of the things you need, so you can get a better price. In the basement food court there's soups, steaks, traditional Taiwan cuisine, fried chicken and fish and juice and ice cream. Prepare for your clothes to smell food when you leave although the place is ventilated and air conditioned.
  • One of the largest night markets in taiwan. This market is so large it spans 2 mrt stations from Jian Tan to Shilin stations.
