If you are a millennial, you will surely fit in this night market known as the “Harajuku” of Taipe. This place resembles the Myeongdong of Seoul, South Korea, it has street food stalls at the middle of the road while various establishments with colorful and bright billboards make this market livelier and more bustling compared to other night markets in Taiwan.

Prices here are relatively higher and if you are fond of branded clothes, shoes and makeups, this is the place to be.

Shop till you drop in this “Little Korea” night market. This is popular among fashion bloggers. Stalls here sell clothes for wholesale and these come with bags of dresses, coats, pants and everything about Korean fashion. I bought a Korean dress for only 2 USD or 100 PHP, how cool is that? So if you want to buy bulks of clothes and sell these back home, you’ll earn a lot.
