Night Markets in Taiwan


Night markets in Taiwan are street markets that occupy either sidewalks or entire streets hawking street food, clothing, and other consumer goods.

The night markets of Taiwan are one of the best things I love about this country. These daily market places are everywhere – some occupy only small side streets and some can house up to 15,000 stalls and shops. The one that is nearest to where I live is the Nanya Night Market where these pictures were taken. If there’s one Taiwanese cultural experience I could recommend, the vibrancy of night markets is definitely at the top of the list.

Besides the awesome street food, the average Taiwanese night market features various forms of entertainment and a lot of shopping. One thing you definitely should not miss are the traditional carnival games such as balloon shooting, net fishing, pinball machines, and claw cranes. Lots of fun for a couple of pennies, and worth every cent!
