NingXia Night Market (宁夏夜市), a very popular TaiPei (台北) night markets among locals. There were numbers of stalls selling authentic and delicious local foods with reasonable price, one of the main reasons why the night market always so crowded with both locals and foreign tourists. It was one of the “not so commercialized” night market in TaiPei, plan for a visit if you are like us who want to feel and experience the local culture and activities. NingXia Night Market was located at Ningxia Rd, Datong District, Taipei City, 103 (台北市大同區宁夏路), available from 1600 to 0200 daily.

We had our dinner outdoor too, a simple 1 as I wasn’t feeling so well that night. That tasted normal meal cost us NT160…


Saw this stall selling wild boar sausage on our way back, well why not… The NT35 sausage was good, tender and juicy, tasted a bit different compare to normal port sausage, I like boar sausage better.

It was around 2200, we started to feel tire and sleepy after filling in our stomachs with those delicious local foods, so we headed back to our accommodation and called it a day…
