The old Raohe Night Market is now a must visit of the many night markets in Taipei City. It is a crowded one street night market with great food choices. It is also right outside the MRT Green Line Song Shan station Exit 5 and around the corner from Exit 1.
After you exit MRT Song Shan Station Exit 5, you will see the temple and the big sign for the night market entrance. The temple, pictured below, looks great when lit up at night.
The Raohe Night Market is one long street with two walking lanes. Each side has stalls and storefronts. The center of the night market is full of stalls and sitting areas where visitors can sit and eat.
