During my recent travel to Taiwan with my hubby, we visited many night markets. Most of the night markets are quite similar in nature. The difference perhaps is the popularity among tourists or locals.
I will be posting the photos which we took at the various night markets that we have visited to share with my readers.
In Taipei, we visited Raohe Night Market and Taipei Hwahsi Street Tourist Night Market. We did not visit the Shihlin Night Market on advice by a local friend. This is popular among tourists.
Where is Raohe Night Market? At Raohe Street near Songshan Railway Station, is close to old Songshan Ciyou Temple, Taipei.
How to get there? Take Metro to Taipei City Hall and take a bus or have to walk a distance to Raohe Street.
All about Raohe Night Market in photos. One of the oldest night markets in Taipei. A little congested with stalls lined up in the centre of the road. Thus, you have to be walking along one side with stalls and the other side are shops. Eating place very crowded and small. This night market is famous for traditional snacks such as medicinal ribs and fruit ices as well as handicraft products.
