Journey to the Night Markets in Taiwan

One of the many reasons we visited Taiwan was due to their cuisines. For some of us, they are so irresistible and not to mention beyond affordable. Taiwan's night Markets used to be called “Ghost Markets,” in the ancient time. You can find night markets in most Asian countries, namely, China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. In Taiwan, there are a long list of night markets. The most popular ones in northern Taiwan include Shihlin Night Market, Keelung Night Market and Tonghua Street Night Market. Fengchia Night Market and Liuhr Night Market are respectively the most well-known night markets in central and southern Taiwan. 

As the sun sets over in many Taiwanese towns and cities, people are heading for the Night Markets, where a number of street food stalls, sidewalk vendors and small canteens are flooding in some streets in Taiwan. The streets are closed from traffics, only pedestrians are allowed. The idea is you can stroll around while enjoying some inexpensive food. Some of the night markets have live entertainments.

In the night markets,stuff are on sale vary from fresh food ingredients to electronic goods and clothing-but one thing is for sure- you'll always find something good to savor. Typical Taiwanese snacks can be found everywhere, but each night market has its own traditions and characteristics. Known for their low priced, freshly cooked and fast food meals- a night market is great place to taste local cuisine while taking in the their culture and nightlife.
