Taiwan – Kaohsiung; Kai-Xuan Night Market. (1)

Hi!! Well I will be posting another night market walk about in Taiwan.

This was on my last trip to Taiwan in early January this year where I was in in Kaohsiung. This is the newest and also largest night market in¬†Qianzhen District of Kaohsiung City ; Kai-Xuan Night Market. In fact, the other new night market is Jin-Zuan which is located next to Kai-Xuan Night Market (mmmm… how come I did not notice this. Well.. a good reason to visit there again to go to Jin-Zuan Night Market). Both the night market is covering over 320,000 sq feet!!

Getting there was not a problem. Just hop on the MRT and get down at Kai-Xuan station. Then .. it is a 10min walk to Kai-Xuan Night Market. If you are lazy to walk, they even offer a free shuttle bus just outside the Kai-Xuan MRT station.  =)

Upon reaching the night market, the place so well lighted up and so so many stalls; some say it is close to 1,000 stalls which offer visitors various foods, games and shopping opportunities. One distinct differentiation is the stalls are in 10 rows (if I remember correctly) where each rows may consist about 10 or more stalls per side. So it is like walking up and down the ‘street’ and it a street name for each. You can see the street plate at the beginning of each street.

Brightly lighted stalls….
