Taipei’s biggest and best night market is not just for shopping; it is an entire cultural experience that should not be missed by any visitor to the city. The action lights up when the sun sets, with thousands of stalls and stores selling everything from clothing to pets, souvenirs to DIY tools.
In addition there are games and plenty of fun to be had, and it is wise to go with an empty stomach because of the array of tempting treats on offer. Cuisine of all sorts beckons with delicious aromas.
