Huaxi Street Night Market Tours

Huaxi Street Night Market
Established in 1951, Huaxi Street Night Market was the first night market in Taiwan built specifically for tourists. Despite being known as Snake Alley for the various serpent delicacies and drinks sold here, you can find more than just snake—the food stalls, restaurants, and shops sell an array of popular Taiwanese foods and other goods.

The Basics
Located near Longshan Temple, a traditional red Chinese gate marks the entrance to the covered marketplace, which stretches for about 1,300 feet (400 meters). Inside, festive red lanterns shine on small shops selling a variety of goods, as well as food stalls and restaurants selling traditional and exotic snacks and delicacies. For those who dare, this is the place try snake in different forms—snake soup and shots of snake blood are the most popular options. If you’re not feeling that ambitious, you can still try local favorites like Danzai noodles, oyster omelets, and Tainan rice cakes.

While you can stroll the market independently, Taipei night tours offer a more informative introduction to local tastes and treats. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Huaxi Street Night Market is a must for foodies. 
  • The market is covered so it’s a good option when it’s raining.
  • Don’t forget to bring cash, as many small vendors don’t accept anything else.
  • This area was formerly a red-light district and there are still a number of massage parlors in operation, so it may not be suitable for young children.

How to Get There
Huaxi Street Night Market is located in Taipei’s Wanhua district, just west of Longshan Temple. By MRT, take the Blue Line to Longshan Temple (Exit 1). A number of buses also stop near the market and temple.

When to Get There
Huaxi Street Night Market is open 4pm until midnight daily. To see the market at its liveliest, visit later in the evening or night.
