Garden Night Market(花園夜市)

Traveler rating:4 424 Reviews

Tuesday:Break time





Tainan’s famed Garden Night Market might not boast the same history as other night markets in Taiwan but has rapidly grown into a huge night market with nearly 400 stalls. It is not only the largest night market in Tainan but also one of the most famous in Taiwan. In 2013, it was ranked 12th in Facebook’s top check-in locations.  The market is divided into four zones including food, fashion, general goods,and recreation & leisure. Stalls often put up large banners overhead to attract customers’ attention. The sea of banners is one of the market’s distinctive sights and harks back to the marching armies of the Warring States Period.

    Garden Night Market is the biggest night market in Tainan.Taiwan is identical with night market. So night market is the time to hunt for street food where many of local food stalls line in night market street. Besides that many souvenir, fashion and games can be found in night market as well. Bubble tea, Stinky Tofu, Tie Dan or soy sauce cooked eggs are halal foods culinary that you can try.The famous culinary in the night market is grilled oyster cigu and oyster omelette. Oysters originating from Cigu Lagoon Tainan, which is Taiwan's largest lagoon that has high salt concentrations so that oysters easily breed. Therefore, oysters abound in this city at affordable prices.

    This was the last night market we visited in Taiwan and we thought we had saved the best for last. But being the biggest night market in Taiwan doesn't make it the best. It was so busy that you could barely move and eventually we decided to only make our way around the periphery of the market as the middle sections with all the food were not even moving. This market is set up in a grid design which can lead to grid lock and in our experience it did which made it impossible to enjoy. If you want to experience the busiest night market in Taiwan make sure you go very early if you actually want to try any of the food

    I went here tonight and it's just another night market as I'm getting used to them now. Pretty decent food to munch on. Afew games and other stuff for sale. I preferred the Wusheng Night Market though.

    One of the best night markets in Taiwan, food is cheaper than the big cities like taipei or kaohsiung. With more than 59 food stalls, clothing stores game stalls you can easily spend 2-3 hours here! Beware of the opening hours as they only do thursdays saturdays and Sundays you can catching the number 0L (Zero left route) bus from the Tainan train station to here. Easy!

    If you want to sample of street food and shop for cheap clothes and electronics, then this is the place for you. However, if you dislike crowds, heat, and cheap goods, then avoid this night market. As a tourist, I didn't find any souvenir type items for sale. Near the multi-colored pole sign about this night market, you'll find a taxi stand.
