It was a somewhat sad visit. Lots of stalls offering everything from fresh veggie juice to skewered fish balls to target practice with shotguns and pachinko dolls... but the overall experience was somewhat underwhelming. More can be done to improve the experience and help the...More

A more traditional market, in a paved area of the city quite close to the Tungtamen food market, the stalls and shops here are considerably more upscale than you'd normally find in an Asian market. It's clearly where the young and well off locals come...More

This is what I miss most about Asia. Where the later it gets, the happier and more busy these Asians get. It's like as 2:00 am hits the party's just getting started! And I don't mean sloppy drunks at some club either. WE are talking...More

This is a decent night market, which also features some live music stages and some military exhibits. The market was packed when we arrived, but the atmosphere was somehow tranquil. The market offers mostly food, but you can also find the usual night market knick...More

Popped by this market (aka Fu ding night market) on my last day of stay. It is new, by far the most tidy market i had seen. There were different sections selling different type of food. Other than the typical dishes you could find across...More

We visited this night market on two different occasions. First was one of the main nights over 10-10 holiday weekend, and it was packed! Second was one of the nights after the weekend. And what a difference in the crowd sizes and even in the...More

Apparently this night market is the newer one of the 2 in Hualien. Average night market... nothing much to talk about here. Would recommend going to the other night market in Hualien instead.

My family and I went on weekday night. Only few stalls are opened. So quiet that we are probably the only visitors. We took a quick stroll and did not even bother to stop and have a bite. It's nothing typical of a bustling night...More
