There are several eateries and little booths where you can buy lots of nick nacks. Pretty cheap... This is the place to go for street food (famous in Taiwan).

We visited the Shilin night market. There were many shops selling discounted branded and locally made clothes and shoes and a few shops selling jewellery. The locally made clothes and shoes were cheap. The place is very lively with many locals and tourists and is close to metro stations. Well worth a visit even if you do not intend to... More

There is a airconditioned, underground part of the market, don't go there. Food is so-so and it's more expensive. Mostly cooked seafood.

We went to a few markets in Taipei and Hong Kong and think these markets were the best and offered the most variety in food, clothing and touristy items. We got there around opening at 5pm and was worth getting there early to avoid the crowds. One great thing we were never harassed in buying something. The B1 food court... More

It's a mixture of commercial clothes stores and / cheap gifts that you everywhere. Spread over a large area with an indoor food market as well - good if you want to escape the rain. There are a lot of stalls that are offering the same type of food so you need to search for the best quality. It's 20... More

Shilin nightmarket is one of the top three night markets in Taiwan. It has a wide variety for food stalls and souvenir shops. One of their main must have is the Chinese medicine pork bone soup

Been there twice and in both tines we could not find the type of food and restaurant we were expecting. We wanted somewhere we could sit down comfortably and eat something like chaofan or noodles or dumplings but There're mostly just streetfood with no chairs. We found a couple of shabu2 with tables and chairs so we ate there after... More
