Kaohsiung City Liu He Night Market 六合夜市 is one of Kaohsiung’s most popular night markets.
During the day, Liuhe 2nd Road looks like any other road with thru traffic and storefronts. But after 6:00pm, the barriers go up and it becomes a pedestrian market. The Liuhe Night Market is a must visit market if you are in Kaohsiung. It is located in the heart of Kaohsiung and is easy to get to by MRT. The other very popular Rei Feng Night Market is in the north part of Kaohsiung.
The highlight of the market is seafood (Click here for Liu He Night Market foods). There are many stands selling, crab, shrimp, octopus, and squid. Some stands are actually restaurants. So you can pick the fresh seafood you want and walk to the back and sit at a nice table to eat. There are some clothing and accessory options here as well. The market takes about 30 minutes to walk through and there is plenty of space. Bring an appetite and enjoy the downtown energy.
