A buzzing night market (3-4mins walk from Kaohsiung Arena Station) as compared to the other Liuhe Night Market near Formosa Blvd. Station. This night market has so many eateries to offer and things to buy. For food, highly recommend the Angel Deep Fried Chicken - one of the best fried chickens in the city; the bubble tea store next to the Angel Chicken Store and the Fried Stinky Tofu in the first lane (next to the grilled oyster/seafood store). There are so many shops around as well from local to international brands. Also, check out the reflexology and body massage store located at the 2nd floor of a low-rise building toward the end of the night market.

This is one of the biggest and busiest night market in the city of Kaohsiung. We got off the taxi right at the entrance where most of the food stalls are and we stopped on the first one already. Many different traditional Taiwanese night market snacks are served here so be prepared to come with an empty stomach. Most of them don't have a long queue so you are good to go with your food within 5 minutes. We tried a number of things and there were probably only one or two that I thought were mediocre.

Aside from the food there are also plenty of shops that sells various things from handcrafts to phone accessories. This isn't really a tourist spot as there are no tourist souvenirs being sold here which makes it more local and authentic.

Location was central ish but was a 20 minute ride from our hotel located in Central Park MRT station. This place possibly closes pretty late on the weekends but be sure to check to see if they are mostly open before you come as there are plenty of night markets that closes and opens depending on the day of the week.

Definitely come back here for more food next time I visit.

We took the MRT and walked here from the Kaohsiung Arena Station. It was a short walk. The night market was quite big and it was like a maze moving round to check out the stalls and it was jam packed with people. We didn't even visit all the stalls. We had some nice Spanish food here, imagine that. You get all the usual food that Taiwanese night markets are famous for.

We look a taxi from our hotel (Garden Villa) to arrive at this Night Market which was about 10 minutes and cost $85. The taxi driver was a very good man. He cautioned us about our wallet and purse as there were plenty of people around. The Market itself was well-located with many hot food stores ranging from barbecues, steam boat, fried chicken and ducks! Also there were many stores selling daily necessities and memorabilia, for example, watches, electric clocks, tiny items of decorations, and also there were many woman clothing. I bought a watch for NT$290. We also bought some roasted egg buns and roasted partridge eggs as they were very nice. As for the hot dishes, we tried the fried bean curds with pickles. They were, however, cheaper than those we had tried at the night markets in Taipei. It took us a whole hour of walk before we finished touring the whole market, just because we were attracted by its exotic nature and the overcrowding of people. It was only Wednesday!

- We took a taxi from to for NT$140 = S$6

- 《Rui Feng Night Market, 瑞丰夜市》 is 3 times the size of , and it is mainly selling food and games.

Look out for :-

(a) The 《Smelly Beancurd, 臭豆腐》at "许记香酥臭豆腐”.

(b) lots of juices like "papaya milk"

(c) BBQ squid was aplenty.

We were so full we could not try much food.

Kaohsiung is my hometown and therefore I have been to all the night markets. Ruifeng is one of the best night markets in Kaohsiung, althought it is cramped (but hey, that is the way how taiwanese night markets are!) It has some of the best taiwanese desserts and treats. A MUST TRY would be the brown sugar bubble tea- rich and sweet, with chewy pearls. Another great booth you must visit would be the short ribs- theres quite a long line up but it's worth the wait! The beef is so juicy and the sauce that goes with it is just fabulous. Another MUST TRY is the deep fried sweet potato balls. It's not greasy at all. Instead, it has a rich sweet potatoe flavour, with a chewy and crispy texture. (TIP: there are two booths and the one that I recommend is the booth near the west-end of the market- the one with the longer line up) The Ruifeng market is definitely worth a visit for those that are visiting Kaohsiung!!

It is easy to get to. Just take the Red line MRT, Kaohsiung Arena Station, Exit #1. It is about 200 meters west of the MRT station.

The food is good. It is "less" crowded when compared to LiuHe Night Market. Over the last 10 years, I have seen significant changes to LiuHe Night Market, where the food quality has gone down due to the influx of large volume of tourists. Local don't go there anymore.

One IMPORTANT note: RuiFeng Night Market is CLOSED on Monday and Wednesday! So, plan your trip accordingly.

This is a must visit night market if you have limited time in Kaohsiung. It is only 5 mins walk from the Kaohsiung Arena Station - Exit 1 and walk straight.

It can however be very crowded on weekends. The passageway is narrow between stalls but it worth the effort because of the variety of stalls. The market is in rows and the way to ensure you will not miss any stall is therefore to clear it row by row.

There are five categories of stalls in the market as follows:

Food - the most common stalls selling normal food such as fried noodles and rice in restaurant style to exotic stuff such as chicken internal organs, fried ice creams, dry ice. You must not miss bean curd drink, fried chicken chop, crispy chicken pop corn, the animal organs and torching beef

Games - from the common shooting ballons to poker, basket ball and even majongs. For children, you have merry-go-round powered by motor cycle.

Fashion accessories - plenty of handbags, shoes, belts, clothings, underwears, fashion jewelleries, phone accessories at bargain prices. Of course not necessary originals.

Other services - massages in public, plants and hobbies.

Prices are local rate instead of tourist rate at LiHe night market. No major security concerns but still need to watch out for pickpockets.

This is the night market that locals go to, not the night market thats filled with tourists and slight overpriced food.
The authentic street food in Taiwan.
Still cant get over the Niu Xiao Pai and homemade milk tea over at RuiFeng.

As all night markets in Taiwan go, this one was hardly distinguishable from the rest other than by its name. Once you are inside the night market, everything looks pretty much the same. That reminds me of shopping malls with the standard brandnames - Gucci, Watsons, Guardian, etc, except that in the case of night markets, these are replaced by BBQ squids, noodles, fried crispy crabs or prawns/shrimps, papaya milk and all kinds of fruit milk, if not ice shavings with fruit toppings and so on.

Still, I would recommend this night market for all first time visitors to Kaohsiung, if anything, as an excellent place to try local Kaohsiung snack food.
