You can not return to Taiwan without having covered the Night Markets. They are colorful and attractive to visit, but more importantly they are a sample of Taiwanese idiosyncrasies and a fun way to learn about their culture.
From street food to technology products or just clothing and footwear, night markets, offer what you may need, imagine and some more.
The most famous is the Shilin Night Market in Taipei, which can be reached by Metro from the railway Jiantan.
It is not a closed manner of a classic or gallery shoping place, but the same streets during the day not become attracted attention at dusk in the most visited city.
Tourists and locals, alike share this place unique entertainment in the world.
In these night markets you can find everything: clothing, food, paintings, toys, video games, antiques and masseurs.
A feature of these markets is the aroma of cooking products on the street, especially the tofu. There are no words to explain the smell that comes from pots with tofu, must be experienced firsthand to know what it feels like.
I traveled among the clothing, footwear, handicrafts and other products, but I see that the dining options are the most popular. Leading pots soups of all kinds, and exposure oyster omelets, rice, tofu and lobsters.
The desserts are preferred by young people.
In many cases the products have their price at NT $, the Taiwanese dollar, but sometimes one is trying to make himself understood with the seller who speaks Chinese. That's when I appreciate the hours arranged in my childhood playing charades.
