The unique name “South Airport” can be traced back to the Japanese Colonial Period. The place was called “South Airport” because it had served as an airport before Songshan Airport was constructed.

In the early post-war era, many public housing communities were constructed for military dependents in this area. Then, all kinds of vendors were attracted to the communities because a large number of people passed by. Little by little, the place continued to prosper. Finally, the lively South Airport Night Market was formed.

The night market is famous for various classic dishes of old Taipei. Why not try some special stinky tofu, freshly baked sesame flatbread, chicken rice and sesame oil chicken? They are not only travelers’ favorite, but also some of the best food you can get at such a decent price!

    Local Night Market


    We stayed at Caesar Metro Taipei Hotel above Wanhua Station so we took a slow walk to this night market. This night market is not so big but mostly frequent by locals. Food stalls and restaurants are so crowded. We managed to dine at a restaurant and we had pork ribs soup and vegetables for dinner. Prices were rather reasonable. After dinner we took a bus to Ximending for a second meal at Saizeriya and roamed the more exciting street scenes shopped there.

    Didn't really like this night market. The food on offer didn't appeal to me. Your opinion may be different though.

    Night Market for locals


    This night market is rather small but it's very localized. Lots of the established shops have pretty long queues. Worth visiting if you are in the area otherwise it's pretty similar to other night markets.

    No tourist, true market


    This is a really nice night market, with excellent food. There are no tourists which I found really cool. Go there if you want a true street food experience ;)

    Small market with 99% food only.


    This is a locals food market. Small in size and definitely catering to local food tastes. Only a few non food stalls. Food looked good and tasty.
