Liouhe Night Market

Get a sense of the tastes, sounds and smells of Taiwan in this buzzing night market full of stalls selling local delicacies.

Liouhe Night Market is the most famous of Kaohsiung’s nocturnal bazaars due to its central location and vast array of Taiwanese treasures for sale. In the day, the street appears like any other, but the stalls and pedestrian barriers go up as the sun goes down. Find numerous food products as well as clothing, handicrafts and other items.

A great range of Taiwanese specialties are available at the night market, such as papaya milk and oyster omelets. Spend hours browsing the food stands for intriguing meals and snacks. Try fresh seafood that fishermen caught earlier in the day.

Explore the area with tour guides that you can find in the market. They will explain the history and importance of each stall and the products they are selling. The market is popular among tourists from Mainland China and Japan, who also take guided tours of its stalls.

Walk from one side of the market to the other in roughly 30 minutes, depending on how many stops you make to try delicious samples and purchase food. You will also find clothing, electrical products and even live animals available to buy. Admire the bright neon lights advertising each stall as businesses compete for your attention. Capture photos of this typically Taiwanese scene.

Prices are very reasonable in the market compared to many of the nearby shops and boutiques. If you’re feeling daring, try some stinky tofu, a traditional Taiwanese dish with an acquired taste. It is made from bean curd, cabbage and chili.

The night market dates back more than 50 years and has become an icon of the city. It starts early in the evening and remains open all night until its closure around dawn.

Take the Orange Line or Red Line of the metro to Formosa Boulevard Station and check out its magnificent glass Dome of Light. The Liouhe Night Market is a short walk west of the station. There are also many bus stops near the market.
