    Could be better


    If you have a hankering for the old days before Taipei was cleaned up, you will like this night market. It's only a hundred yards (metres) from the Longshan Temple, It's a bit on the sleazy side. There are a number of temples nearby in addition to the Longshan Temple that are worth seeing.

    Tired , dirty and in need of a wrecking ball!


    This is one of the poorest examples of a night market I have experienced anywhere in the world. Very dirty , run down , and extremely low rent. This was not worth the cab ride out! The food looked dangerous, the smells of rotting food , sewage and overcrowding should have warned me as I walked in Husslers and night crawlers everywhere trying to suck you in. Seriously, don't bother as this is a complete waste of time.

    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.
