Raohe Street Night Market
Vacation Travel Guide

Grilled squid, duck blood and stinky tofu are on the exceptional menu in this traditional Taiwanese night market near the Keelung River.

Visit Raohe Street Night Market, where all types of stalls and shops provide a glimpse into Taiwanese traditions and cultures. The 2,000-foot (600-meter) street is a gastronomic haven as well as an entertainment hub, with carnival games and prizes. Watch locals and visitors go past in this intriguing and atmospheric night bazaar.

As you stroll down the lively avenue, notice the traditional red lanterns hanging above you. Along the sides are countless signs and banners draping the buildings. Negotiate charges with vendors and try the snacks and meals available at the various stalls.

Among the most exotic and popular dishes are grilled or fried squid, duck blood and pork buns. Try some pork rib soup with black pepper and fried dumplings with minced pork or vegetables. Brave yourself for the tasty stinky tofu, so-called for its pungent odor. If you’re vegetarian, check whether it was cooked in milk or shrimp brine.

Explore the range of shops for jewelry, fashion and souvenirs. The streets are also lined with cafés and restaurants serving Taiwanese specialties. Consider the importance of the night markets to Taiwanese people, as the practice is engrained in the local culture.

See what bargains you can pick up at the Clothing Shopping Outlet in Wufenpu, at the southern end of the market. Its many corridors are filled with stores selling discounted items.

The Raohe Street Night Market runs along the southern bank of the Keelung River in the Songshan area of central Taipei City. Travel by metro or bus to Songshan Station and walk north for a couple of minutes to get here. The market is free to enter and opens daily from late afternoon to midnight.

While you’re in the district, check out neighboring sights such as Ciyou Temple, the Rainbow Bridge and the Raohe Evacuation Gate.
