Taiwan – Shilin Night Market (士林夜市)

Shilin Night Market Signage at Jiantan MRT

At 9pm, the 2 elders decided to call it a day.  But the lure of the most famous night market in Taiwan was simply too much for us and thus my family (with the kids) decided to make a quick trip to check out the largest night market in Taipei – Shilin Night Market (士林夜市).

The crowd at Shilin Night Market is crazy. By that, I mean it’s super-duper crowded. Remember that we were both physically and mentally tired from the long journey from Sun Moon Lake? This, together with the overwhelming crowd, are the perfect recipe for … disaster! Everybody was cranky and we didn’t really explore the place. In fact, there were so much food that we didn’t try. I will have go back to Shilin again when I next visit Taiwan to complete my Shilin’s experience! ◕ิ‿◕ิ
