Liuhe Night Market

Every night in the Taiwanese city of Kaohsiung, a nightly event takes place that brings people out into the streets, but you wouldn’t know it the next morning. That event is the Liuhe Night Market.

The Liuhe Night Market is a nightly event that has taken place along Kaohsiung’s Liuhe Street since the 1940s. This night market is a series of some 138 stalls that are reminiscent of a town fair in Western countries such as the USA. However, unlike other night markets which are food-based, this one features a wide variety of products ranging from electronics, live animals, knives, clothes, the obligatory seafood stalls, and much more. Over the past few years, Liuhe St. has been designated a pedestrian-only area and turned into an international tourist night market by the Taiwanese government!

During the daytime hours, Liuhe St. is just another busy metropolitan thoroughfare. That is, until the sun sets and the night market comes back to life!

The Liuhe Night Market is open every night from 6 pm-2 am.
