2nd time that I've been to this night market, and it's always such a tight squeeze but be glad that at least the people don't push you. Lots of clothing shops and food stalls around. Prices for clothing ain't exactly cheap, but there are many interesting and good tasty choices of food. Even if you don't buy anything, you can make a trip there for the atmosphere.

A must experience in Taipei....unless you hate crowds. Bring your change for everything from street food to scarves, to $3 watches. Mostly young people, but I was surprised by how many families and strollers were navigating the crowded, narrow streets. Check it out for 45 min. Easy to catch a cab home.

Cheap food, great variety in roadside shopping but dont forget to bargain as much as you can, (and still you will feel, that you could have got it cheaper )

This is a really big night market with lots to see and eat. It's definitely for the locals, since most of the food places don't have any English on the signs or menus, so it can be a little difficult to figure out what the food is or how to order. Well worth seeing, even if you don't buy anything.

You can reach ShihLin Nightmarket via LRT, shop at ZhongShan North Road or Zhong Zheng Rd. ShihLin Nightmarket is in between these two stations and you need to walk for 10 mins.

There is a delicious MiShua stall (Mian Xian noodle) in front the template. It is better than Ah Chung Mian Xian in Xi Meng Din. Must try it out.

There is also another deep fry chicken chop nearby the front entrance, long queue and you need to prepare small change.

I discovered one special food court, it is an underground food court just opposable the Deep Fry Chicken Chop. The food court is full our all variety of local delights, your taste bud will be satisfied and walk ago with full stomach.
