    Can miss it - Not the usual Taipei night market


    Taiwan is great for night markets however if you are coming from Asia like Singapore and compare this night market against Rao He and Shi Lin or even the Guangzhou night market adjoining you will generally be disappointed. It mainly has sellers of shoes, massages and restaurants. So it is really a different kind of night market and not in the same league. I’d say you can safely cross this off the list and visit all the other night markets first. Hence my rating of poor. The food in adjoining Guangzhou night market is ok with variety but my family who Taiwanese taste buds say the food isn’t as good as Rao He or Lingjang night market. 30 min walk from Ximen station or Ximending.

    Interesting night market street


    We went here as part of a night tour of Taipei. There are numerous street restaurants and shops, including clothing, games and quite a few massage shops. Definitely a very unique experience. Not so sure about the shop selling snakes (apparently there was a time when you could choose your snake and watch it being killed and cooked for you - aagh!) Worth a visit just to see something different. Our guide was very informative and explained the history and use of the area.

    With arcade


    This is one of the 艋舺night markets. You walk along the Guangzhou street, you come across Huaxi street, which has arcade over the top so no worry for rain. This street is especially characterized as snake restaurants. This is about the direction if you turn right at the intersection of Huaxi and Guangzhou. I don’t remember if there’s arcade at the other side, I mean left side at the intersection. If you go left, you’ll find karaoke bars and sexy service spot. It didn’t seem to be dangerous but pleased visit there with your responsibility.

    New perspective on shopping


    We went here during a night tour of Taipei that was set up at our hotel. We enjoyed our time here. There are numerous street restaurants and venders. There is clothing, food, games, even massages and some sort of pet stores. This was a very unique experience and we enjoyed our time here thoroughly. Please look into the many different street night markets in the area as I feel each may specialize in different things. This is well worth the trip.

    Was there pretty early at 4.30pm, only a few stalls were set up. Was really surprised to see Huaxi night Market turning into a seezy area with aggressive ladies hustling in the street offering sexual services, even at Longshan temple station Exit. 2nd floor of the stores of Huaxi Streets are all the transit motel where they get things done. Except for the sex workers, i really like Huaxi Street. Very locally lo Iike. Food is good too
