Shilin Night Market is a night market in the Shilin District. It is the largest and most famous night market in the city. The local businesses and vendors begin opening around 4 p.m. with crowds reaching their peak between 8 and 11 p.m. Businesses continue operating well past midnight and close around 1 to 2 a.m.

Shilin Market comprises two distinct sections. The food section is housed within a large complex selling traditional Taiwanese food and snacks while the other section is a pedestrian-only street crowded with street vendors selling an assortment of clothes, toys, accessories, watches, bags, wallets and other stuff.

Address: Taipei Night Markets
