Shilin Night Market is the Best Place for FoodShilin Night Market is the biggest and best tourist night market, but due to the COVID19, it has not been its old self, but who has? It has all the best foods in Taiwan, and if you go with a local friend, you can avoid getting ripped off. Also, if you speak Mandarin, you are sure to get more than you bargained for. If you haven't been to Shilin Night Market, please do so, but please bring your own utensils to avoid using unenviromental disposal chopsticks and spoons, plus it is a lot safer nowadays.

Most well known night market in TaipeiThis is probably the biggest and most well known night market in Taipei. We took the metro there. Lots of food stalls, clothing and accessories as well as souvenirs around here. The is a basement food court but it was not open when we were there. There was a very long queue for fried chicken near the entrance and we joined the queue and got ourself some fried chicken.

Always something new to buyThere's always something new to see at Shihlin Night Market; just what you buy depends on you. The market is very popular for women's clothing and also souvenirs. There is oodles of food to choose from, much of it is Taiwanese. The barbecued pork sausages are very tasty. I love the fruit juices, especially those made from local fruits, such as star fruit (carambola). The market is usually bustling at night, best way to get there is by MRT Tamshui- Xinyi (Red) Line, stopping at the Jiantan Station.
Shilin Night Market, the best night market I've visitedShilin Night Market is the biggest night market in Taipei. Google Map is your best buddy so you won't get lost when you explore around. From snack foods to milk teas and street foods, Shilin Night Market is indeed a haven for shoppers and foodies. Shopaholics will surely enjoy this place as this serves as a little Shibuya of Taipei in my opinion as they're offering trendy and fabulous clothes. I went to Taiwan during the winter season and I enjoyed window shopping for gorgeous trench coats and dresses. Aside from these boutiques, there are several souvenir and gift shops where you can buy cute key chains and fridge magnets. Stinky Tofu is a must try! It doesn't smell good but when I tasted it, it is yummy! The large Taiwanese Chicken is a must try too!
