9. Night Market

Project Manager: Rebecca

     Shi-lin Night Market is a must-visit tourist spot, often considered the largest and most famous night market in Taiwan. Spanning several streets, Shi-Lin Night Market offers a variety of local, traditional, and international cuisines that attract locals and foreigners alike. With so many types of food to taste and souvenirs to buy, everyone can discover new delicacies and fully experience the amazing and incomparable adventure that we call – Taiwan night market, and I do believe everyone will have a lot of fun here.

     You can find many of Taiwan’s traditional foods here, such as Tempura. It has a strange texture based upon minced fish and tapioca or sweet potato flour. But it is for sure delicious. And Bubble Tea, the most famous drink in Taiwan with some chewy little pearls in it. And of course, the most notorious Taiwanese goodie, Stinky Tofu. Though some of the foreigners might not want to try this, I do believe it is totally worth the dare! It will for sure lead them to a different world of how food can taste. There is even an underground food paradise hidden along the western edge of the market. I hope all fellows experienced the delicacies in B1 and found their personal favorites down there.
     We were separated into small groups so that it would be much easier to keep an eye on every fellow and make sure they all enjoy the trip.In our group, we had Brian, Geoffery, Nova, Dahlia, and me. Five of us walked through the whole market and tasted every single snack we found delicious. Geoffery even tried some traditional night market games. Though he wasn’t very good at it and didn’t win anything, he was still very pleased and found them interesting. 
    Before we got on the bus and say goodbye to Shi-lin Night Market, I could tell that everyone enjoyed a lot by the smile on their faces.
