    Huaxi street Night Market


    In this market you will find the rarest food you can imagine but the favorite for Taiwanese is the stinky tofu

    Strictly for tourists


    The Huaxi Street Night Market is made for tourists. It's actually two arcades of shops selling tat. This area was once the center of Taipei's nightlife. The Shihling Night Market offers better things in a more pleasant environment. If you want cheap souvenirs, Huaxi Street Night Market may be worthwhile.

    There are many many Night markets in Taipei, in fact in the whole of TAIWAN. Every province will have several night markets; it is so for every town !!! Huaxi Night Market HAS been established decades ago in TAIPEI. It was The Top Night Market in TAIPEI Over showdered even the XI LING Night Market. A MUST SEE Sight for the touriests !!! Time changes and now it it slowly sinking into the showder. The main reason likely be the stores do not catch up with time and remains the same decades ago !!! The ONLY Exception is the SNAKE Restaurant, which is still an attraction for the average tourists; apart from this there are few notable things around. This accounts for the low flow of tourists. Visit and experience the PASSED GLAMOUR of Night Market !!!

    Wonderful atmosphere


    What I like about this night market is that a lot of stalls have seating tables for you to enjoy your food. Do note that the actual market is not under the sheltered building but out on the street.

    Not what it used to be


    I think back a few years ago it was the place to come but now you can skip it. Snake alley is only 2 shops now and there is a small street food street
