If that is your scene.....you will love it ....As for me , too much to handle ....cannot shop well ,long queue at food stalls ...no seats to sit and dine and pushed to follow the crowd......Just too many visitors on a Friday night and a public holiday ....Just had to get out after 30 mins !

You just take the MRT to the station after shihlin and its right across the street. Just walk around and bring your appetite.

The food stalls are mainly located in the basement of the building. Too many food stalls selling identical food items such as fried oysters, smelly tofu, etc. and overpriced. The place was too crowded for comfort when we were there. Outside the building along the street, there are a few food stalls selling different food items from what we have seen earlier. Tried the ox tongue shaped pancake and soya bean glass jelly drink, inexpensive and nice...

It's part above ground and part in a building basement. The basement is so crowded that you don't have the chance to see what they are selling. Just get pushed along by the crowds. Above ground, some of the stalls are along a road so you have to keep a watch out for vehicles. I don't recommend here except to tell others that you have been here.
