Beware of buying fruit in Shilin market. It is famous for ridiculous pricing. Food quality has going down fews years back and variety are seem to be less. You can have better food in other night market or store around Taipei or other Taiwan town. Buy some shoes for my kids and it only wear for one day. You can... More

My second trip on my second trip to Taipei.. super long queue at Hot Star chicken.. alot of food stalls.. there is foodcourt at basement 1 near entrance.. a lot of alleys which u could easily miss out.. other than food, all is average. Shopping was ok.

Go here hungry and it's better if in a group as you'll want to sample so much food. It's all delicious, authentic..some items are questionable..snake blood, for instance. The fried chicken is yummy. The beef is to die for. I went here 4 times. Definitely visit and very inexpensive

Been there in December after a visit to The National muzium. It was Saturday night and the crowd is unbelievable. There are many streets and rather confusing. I believe the many stores here are for the tourist. I noted many locals actually prefer the shops along the main road fronting the main entrance of "Shilin Market". If you're coming from... More

Endless stores and restaurant! Worth a visit. There is a underground food court, but it is really compact.. I do not recommend family to go down there if u hv a stroller or holding a baby. There are already endless restaurant choice above the ground.

Shilin Night Market is the largest night market in Taipei. Lots and lots of food venders with many strange and exotic dishes to sample. Interesting shopping at discount prices. Very busy. Directions: MRT “Green Line” or “Orange Line” and get off at the “Chien-Tan

I'm usually a person who loves markets and i wanted to buy some souvenirs but i was distinctly disappointed with this market. Shilin night market was very busy but i found little to buy here. Most of the shops sold clothing in a very small size, many items were reproductions of Japanese anime characters and the rest were bulky stuffed... More
