The night market is very well-organized and tourist-friendly compared to the night markets in Taichung. The food we tried are delicious and merchandise are reasonably priced. Highly recommend it!

I guess Liuhe Night Market must be Kaohsiung's answer to Taipei's Shilin Night Market. It was jam packed so it was not exactly a leisurely walk around a park. You get pushed or jostled and you move with the flow. And I suppose that's what happens when a place becomes too well known and popular.

Upon stepping into the night market, realized we made a mistake by coming to this place. Full of rowdy and uncouth tourists and felt like you are not in Taiwan anymore. Will advise other travelers to visit the other night markets in Kaohsiung, especially Ruifeng, that is the real deal.

Having been to several night markets in Taipei, this one was different since it was housed on a wide street, only one block long however a very long block. It was comprised mainly of food vendors, a lot being seafood given this is a port city. There were lots of tour groups and was quite crowded, I would beware of... More

Frankly speaking, this nightmarket targets Mainland Chinese tourist groups. They provide rather limited choices of food andt is honestly less creative like other night markets which are popular to the local (for instance Ruifeng ) As a local Kaohsiung citizen, I wouldn't recommend this nightmarket to my friends.

If you have visited the night market in Taipei, you do not need to visit this one. It is much much small and 70% of the stalls are food stalls. If you want to have a outdoor eating experience, that would be fine.

We reached Kaohsiung at around 7pm from Taipei via the "bullet train". After checking in at the Hi-Lai Hotel, we proceeded to take a taxi ride to Lioho Night Market. The taxi brought us to the night market in less than 15min. The night market is just made up of one street with a distance of at most 500 metres.... More

This was the worse night market I have been to in Taiwan. The place has been commercialized which means you are going to get a lot of tourist visiting this area. There are almost zero clothes stalls while most of the food seemed to cater to the Mainlander's taste. Ruifang night market will be a better alternative.

To its credit, it is one of the oldest and best known attractions in Kaohsiung. It is easy to get to. There are all kinds of food stalls. Unfortunately, be prepared to pay the "tourist" price. The quality of food has also declined in my opinion. Go visit, but keep your expectation low.

Not good, Why? Because its flooded with tourists from China, I said FLOODED. and its directly lead to the food's price is more expensive compare to others unpretentious night market in KaoShiung. But if your hotel is housed around this area, there is no need to take metro to go to other place to have ur dinner. The food here... More
