It is no doubt that Shilin Night Market is the most famous night market in Taipei. Shilin is large and huge both in size and in the number of people who visit it. Although it is very messy on a few days of the week, you should still come here at least once. And thanks to its proximity to Beitou and Yangmingshan, this is a contrasting experience, completely different from resting and relaxing in the natural environment.

You will definitely have to drop by the Shilin Food Building and sample traditional food at this night market. There are all kinds of food, any kind of meat, whole heart and all oblique. You can also try Taiwanese sausages with a bit of sweet taste and do not skip tofu “rotten”. Then the omelet, the coffin, the aiyu, and the fruit with the candy are interesting things here. In general, it is really wonderful for you to try.
