This place was very touristic, and everything is more expensive there than in other night markets! Plus it is quite far from the center of Taipei. I personally prefer Shida night market.

If you are interested in trying local food, Shilin market is the best venue. It is big market wit lots of local food stalls. Many gadget and its accessories are available in reasonable price. Make sure you get off at Jiantan MRT station and go along the exit 1.

For tourist visiting Taipei for the first time, this night market is a wonderful spot to explore the culture of night market in Taiwan. It's not the traditional kind of night market but it has various kinds of snacks and desserts to choose from and it is very easy to get here. The vendors usually start after 17:00pm. The fried...

The market isn't what used to be and lot people and barely can walk. Just like car stuck in traffic bump to bump. However, if you like carnival games, you must visit. There are lots of games of a childhood memory. Food so so in the food court and street food stalls so crowded that you cannot even buy. Maybe,... More

Too many similar stalls, too many fried stuff, too many people. So personally I don't fancy this place.

We visited this market twice during our stay as it wasn't far from our apartment. The streets are buzzing with activity and there's a great variety of street food stalls, restaurants, market stalls, and stores to keep you entertained.

The covered portion of the night market is basically cheap junk to buy and carnival games. The good stuff is along the side streets. The giant fried chicken vendor to the left of the covered area entrance is a must. There will be a line but it moves super fast. Wander the alley from there for kore delicious food and... More

Good local food, cheap stuff to buy and helpful local people. One full night is enough to walk finish the whole place.

Perhaps the best and biggest night market in Taipei. You can shop for anything from clothes, shoes, souvenirs and what nots without boring a hole on your wallet. Very accessible through MRT and taxi. Don't keave Taipei without visiting.
