In 2013, the largest night market in Taiwan opened in the southern city of Kaohsiung. This night market is actually two night markets that are adjacent to each other. One is called the Jin Zhuan Night Market and the other is the Kai Xuan Night Market. Each market has plenty of food choices, clothing, accessories, and games.

These night markets are very accessible via public transportation. If you are coming on the KMRT, take the subway Red Line to the R6 Stop. Walk out of Exit 2. Cross the street heading south and turn left. You'll be at the night markets within 5 minutes. If you don't want to walk, there is a free shuttle to and from the station to the markets.

 

The market address is #788 Kai Xuan 4th Road, Kaoshiung City. It is near the Dream Mall (15 minute walk) and the intersection of Zhong Shan Road and Kai Xuan Roads.  The hours of operation are....Monday, Wednesday,  Friday, Saturday, Sunday 5:00 pm - 2:00 am.

The Kai Xuan Night Market is laid out well. Instead of row numbers, they have named each row after a street in Kaohsiung City. These green signs mimic the streets signs in the city. Sorry to non-Chinese readers, the signs are only in Chinese.

Below, pig knuckles for sale. The name "Hitler Pig Knuckles" lacks a bit of tact, however.

The potted plant pictured above and below is actually ice cream!!! Looks like soil and a stalk, but actually is a topping and a spoon. DELICIOUS and FUN!
