Night Markets for Midnight Snacking

In Taiwan, the best nightlife finds at food markets. The country has a penchant for snacking and a desire to eat with friends all night long. Students or white-collar employees night snacking as a social event or an activity to relax. In Taiwan, there are a lot of stores that open only from late night until morning, or some 24-hour stores that you can feed your stomach whenever you want.

Taiwan’s night markets initially began as informal vendor meetings, where merchants would get together and sell their wares. These groupings eventually turned into more formal night markets. Now, visitors will find great Chinese food mixed with Taiwanese food, and that’s because of history—at the end of the Chinese Civil War in 1950, general Chiang Kai-Shek retreated to Taiwan, bringing along more than two million people and some of mainland China’s best chefs.
