I just visited this past weekend and it was really crowded. (Sunday appx 3pm). There are a few temples to look at, yummy things to try, and cute items to buy. It's a little bit outside of Taipei and you need to either drive there or take the bus. I live in Taipei and want to see everything but if... More

Huge variety of delicious Taiwanese food! Its a convenient place to end your day after visiting the beach at the Northern Coast of Taiwan (a short drive). Do try the taro dessert as it's fantastic!

If you crave the stinkiest stinky vomit inducing stink stinkiest experience near Taipei, this is the place for you. A meander along the market watching loving couples share this stinkiest of Taiwanese delicacies before a kiss and embrace in the stink cloud of stinky tofu stalls is a truly stinky stomach churning experience. Definitely one not to miss out on... More

First, the architecture of old Taiwanese style building along the street was nice. Second, variety of tofu foods to try and the taste was really nice. The only setback was the distance from Taipei city. Otherwise, it was similar to any night market in Taipei.

For the food, you can find many cooking style of Tofu in there, even ice-cream. You must try this, & you never found the similar taste in the world famous ice-cream brand. I recommend you to visit there at night (within 6:30pm – 8:00pm). Because you can have the tofu food, and take the photos of night scene together. The... More

Tofu in every conceivable form! Great eats and experimentation - even for vegans. Tofu for dessert - what a concept.
