The area
Neighbourhood: East District/ Yongkang District
This district is suitable for settling down. The Tainan Train Station is situated in this district and the transport hub. Behind the train station stands the tallest building in Tainan. There are department stores and hotels surrounding the station. Furthermore, the National Cheng Kung University and its green area cover a vast area of land. The district, therefore, sends out an academic, yet relaxed atmosphere. The alleyways on Dasyue Road near the university are filled with restaurants and shops offering exotic cuisine. It is a quiet getaway in the hustle and bustle of the city. The Banyan Garden and the green area are a top choice for the public to have a walk after picnic. Many foreigners visit here every year. The Old Tainan Magistrate Residence is the historic monument that is the most well-preserved and at the same time the most luxurious during the Japanese rule. The Great East Gate on Dongmen Road is perfectly in sync with the modern busy traffic. The seed museum hidden in the alleyway in the East District is a utopia that is highly recommended. As for Yongkang District, it is the biggest satellite town in Tainan. Though it is modern and busy, it has stories to tell. For those who want to have a glimpse of the history of early Tainan’s development, visit here.

This place is huge and offers lots of food options. It was crowded and many places had long lines. There are plenty of restaurants and food stalls. There are also shops and arcades. Prices are very reasonable.

This night market definitely has all one needs and gets busy early on. We came at 6:30pm and it was packed. The outer areas by the roadside are just a small taste of what is inside with rows and rows of food making it hard to move.

The games had something different to Taipei with a game to roll a ball up an incline into a hole. To get 3 in a row scores you some points to cash in for prizes. Our kids liked this as different to Taipei.

Food wise nothing Super special to try although you see queues for fried chicken and anything Else here.

Check your dates as when Dadong is open other night markets shut. They co operate to not kill each Others business however it means that shops in Dadong may also be seen in Garden night market.

Definitely worth a visit and get here at 5 to avoid the crush

Dadong night market may look a bit messy and unorganized but never judge a book by its cover . The food inside is amazing and the price is quite reasonable as well. A must go if you want to taste the real local street food in Tainan.

We were pleasantly surprised by this market as we went on a rainy day and had been warned that many stalls wouldn't open in the rain. The food was good with a few interesting options we hadn't seen before.

First trip to Dadong Night Market on a Monday night. The place was jammed packed as we were told it had been raining the previous week and many shops didn't operate then.
There were queues for fried chicken/ribs and snacks.
A few lanes selling varied merchandise such as cellphone covers, street clothes, pet food and undergarments.
It operates on Monday and Tuesday.

General opinion - if you have seen one night market, the rest are similar. We skipped buying any food as it started to pour very heavily and some food were getting sprinkles of rainwater onto them. Strolling in night markets are part of the unique culture in Taiwan. Interesting.

First off the opening times are on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays, I took bus #3 from the Tainan main station and after getting off its a 3 minutes walk.
Food stalls game stalls and clothes stalls were separated nicely. Another recommendable one in Tainan, although it’s smaller than the garden night market

It could be a rainy weekday as not many stalls were opened. Mainly just food stalls like 4 or 5 rows. Pretty small. Night markets operate on different nights, they are not opened everyday. As we are tourists, we could only go to those available. Not impressed with this night market but it was still good to experience the night market culture. Loved the fried sweet potatoes balls and guava fruit in season. Have fun!
