“My favourite night market in Taipei”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

ShiDa is a small night market if you're comparing it to the larger ShinLin night market - but it's perfect for me! It doesn't have the crazy crowds bumping into you - the folks here are young students and hipsters, and the stores have cooler designs and fashionable items.

The food here is pretty good too - not as many options but lotsa small roadside eateries.

I bought a cool black pleather jacket for $1880 TWD. There's a store at the end of ShiDa that has girly toiletries that make cute little gifts, and a stationery shop where we got cute 3D pop-up Christmas cards for about S$1 each - such a steal!

Take the MRT to Taipower Building, head to Exit 3, turn right and walk straight down to ShiDa road. I'd recommend walking to the end and heading back towards the MRT direction, turning into the left/right smaller lanes for more stores :)

I find Shida Night Market to be the best in Taipei. It is small but with all essential shops from cloths to accessories. The snack and food there is not alot compared to others but is sufficient with all famous type and is nice.

“Worth a visit!”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

There are more shops selling apparels, shoes, bags etc instead of local delicacies. But the food and beverages choices are decent enough. There aren't many push cart stalls. Mainly air-conditioned shops catered to students as there is a school nearby so the prices of the things there are quite reasonable! Somehow it looks a little like Bugis Street in Singapore to me.

“Small but got what we need”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

We have been to Taipei (and hence various night markets) many times. Shida has a very small night market (probably catering the students nearby), but they have just the right number of food stalls for our choice. We've been to places like Shilin Night Market - while it is big and boasts lots of choices, it is very crowded and the queues are longer, so you may end up trying the same amount of things as in Shida.

“Decent nightmarket ”
Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

I really enjoyed the dessert at the Shida nightmarket. But other than that there wasn't much other food available in comparison with the other Taipei nightmarkets. The shopping section was not bad either. This is a pretty good place to go to if you just want to walk around at night and look around.
