Good market but packedI thought this was a good experience since it was so close to MRT station. There are some interesting things to buy, but don’t expect negotiating like Bangkok or Saigon. The food was plentiful and varied though. Just be prepared for large crowds.
Super Big Night MarketBig and crowded night market with variety of nice street foods to choose. You are sure spoil for choices! One of the must go night market!

the worst night marketextremely crowded. out of so many night market, I have gone to, Shilin is the worst, ugliest and very unpleasant. I prefer Ningxia, gongguan and the ximending night market. Shilin does not have good food except the original hotstar fried chicken and there is one very old traditional mochi in the middle of the street. the rest? nothing tastes good.

Stinky Bloody Tofu!!May I preface this review with the statement that I thoroughly enjoyed my weekend in Taipei. It’s a lovely, low-rise city with a neighbourhood feel that really appealed to me. This night market is very popular and was rammed even on the Sunday that I visited. You’ll find that there are roughly 10 types of market stalls/shops that are repeated over & over as you meander thru the streets, which is a tad disappointing and especially when you think you’ve smelled the last of the Stinky Tofu. I mean, this stuff is pungent and a test for the really strongest of nasal hairs. Nevertheless, I would recommend a visit to see the place.

Worth a visit when in TaipeiMany cities in Asia have night markets e.g. Hong Kong, Bangkok, Beijing, etc and Taipei is no exception. In fact the city has several night markets, but the largest and best is Shilin. This is a must for any visitor looking to soak up the vibe and although there are signs warning of pickpockets, it is relatively safe. The market has a large variety of shops and street stalls selling everything from food to clothing, shoes, etc. It is not just for tourists as it appears to be the place for the locals to go to after a day at work to hang out in the evening just to look for a bargain and drink bubble tea as they browse the streets. It is easily accessible by subway.
