    Back to old night market


    It used to serve snakes on menus but not any more. We barely find restaurant to serve it but still a lot of food stand we can try. A lot of message stores around the area.

    Snakes not as dominant of a feature anymore.


    Do not fear...........Not every eatery or majority are serving snakes anymore. Even if you approach the ones that do have snakes on the menu, its only a few in the cages and glass enclosures. See if with your eyes by approaching it however, do not take pictures. They do not like that. Some restaurants are small, some are large, but they are not busy serving snakes to diners. There are many other eateries along the street in a enclosed canopy so it would be great for rainy days. There are foot massage parlours and nali spas here too for very reasonably priced service. We indulged in their nails service and foot massages. Do not be put off by the "tourist" and "snake alley" moniker. Worth a visit.

    Snakes on a plate !


    We walked through here mostly out of curiosity ! There really are lots of snakes being sold for people's dinner , after they have eaten the rats! And if that's not enough, we saw rats in the street basically looking at us! Also, lots of "massage" parlours; red light district feeling. Not recommended but go and make up your own mind!

    nice and authentic


    Unlike Shilin night market, you will see essentially locals here. Excellent foods, few clothes. Go where the lines are, as this signals the best foods.
