If you only had only one night to spend in Taiwan then Shilin Night Market is that place to be in. It is known to be the most famous and largest night market in Taiwan. It is very popular among tourists and locals alike.
Vendors usually start to prepare around 4-5PM. People start to visit the lively & crowded place at around 8pm and usually stay around until 12midnight. We went to Shilin Night Market at around 10PM and was able to leave at around 1AM. Wasn’t able to buy much things though coz I was dead tired hahaha! Bad timing indeed! I regretted that.
å£«æž—å¤œå¸‚ Shilin Night Market is divided into 2 sections. First is the nonfood, which is a very loooooonggggggggggg strip of shops that sells clothes, accessories, jewelries & other stuff.
There are even pet shops and arcades. Look at the kittens below, super adorable!
The other section is all about food. This is what Shilin Night Market is very famous for. Eateries & food stalls cover the whole section. It was a bit slippery as there were people who spilled food over the floor. Anyhow, what famous food that can be found here? There are fried bread, omelettes, noodles, stinky tofu, bubble tea, etc.
My feet really hurt a lot after the experience. There were just too many interesting places to go to! Time was really never enough to walk around the whole Shilin Night Market. It was a great experience and definitely unforgettable! 🙂
