Night Market

We visited Feng Chia or Fengjia Night Market, the largest of its kind in Taiwan, as a cultural experience. The large ones are usually near a university, as many students cannot afford high prices but consume a lot, and the mass appeal of night markets makes them very popular. Feng Chia spans several blocks, and has stores/stalls selling food, drinks, clothing, and miscellaneous merchandize. It reminds me of the Hong Kong night market decades ago on land reclaimed from the sea, only more upscale. How time flies!
