Garden Night Market(花園夜市)

Traveler rating:4 420 Reviews

Monday: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.

    Best in Taiwan...

    Traveler rating:4 2019-03

    Not sure about others... but this night market should be rated the best in Taiwan, simply because it got everything, fun and very localized... unlike some "tourist night market area" .. Not too far from the City a taxi ride is just below NT200 from my hotel... very fair... We had our dinner + supper here, bought some souvenir and even play few games with my kids... you will be amazed at the kind of games available here.. is not your typical night market ... Coming from a country where night market small or huge , I still find that this night market has it own charmed and deserved to a recommendation from me .. so if you really like to explore... drop by this market, but please check the day as they don't operate everyday . plan yourself ahead, spent at least 2-3 hours minimum at this night market you will immerse yourself in fun and enjoyable night trying so hard to just check out all those food & games stall !

    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.

    Too busy

    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

    Not bad

    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!
