    One of Biggest nightmarket in Taipei


    Shilin night market is one of the biggest in Taipei. Plenty of food and stalls for you to shop. Tried the fried chicken chop, pepper bun, sausage, papaya milk etc. it’s best to buy the food in small portions so you can try a variety.

    Night Market


    Came as a recommendation from trip advisor. We arrived around 7 PM and left around 9 PM. Took a taxi from the Taipei main station to the market which was about a 15 minute ride. It helped that the taxi driver knew exactly where to drop us off at. Be ready for very packed and narrow streets, filled with people and motorcycles. Bring lots of cash because all the food vendors only except cash. It also helps to have a local take you around and identify some of the foods that they are serving. Shop around as many vendors are selling the same product. Look for the cheapest price.

    Plenty Of Food Stalls!


    Shilin nightmarket may not be one of the biggest nightmarket around in this country but it is definitely worth visiting and there are still many of the famous Taiwan snacks available here! A must visit place if you are travelling only to Taipei or passing by!

    Good walk, Loads of chinese food and shopping


    I love walking so i started to walk from one side to another it was nice walk though so many people around lighting was great. Chinese food everywhere, i walked closely to stinky tofu i wouldnt recommend that to people who aint used to stinky tofu i almost vomited you dont wanna ruin your trip A must is massage places they are wellknown for foot reflexology do pay a visit if you are having any foot fatigue. i didnt see many ATM machines there so carry your money with you plus when i did withdraw some money they have certain service charges on withdrawal The place can be a little not so hygenic because of so many people and there are just to many things around, food, people, some of them carried pets too so just be careful and have fun
