Enjoy an evening of local food and shopping


Spend a relaxed evening in Taipei, traveling by metro, bus, taxi and walking in the night markets. You pick the spots and items on your shopping and food list, I'll provide you with the best route, translation and guidance to enjoy the city at your own pace.

Shops in Taipei are open every day from 11 am until 10 or 11 pm, some for 24 hours, but temples usually close by 10 pm. The open air night markets get busy from 6 pm until the early hours of the next day. Spend your evening the easy way, choose to shop and have a meal where and when you like it.

This evening tour is an ideal extension of your 'Easy Taipei' route or add-on for tours taken the same day. I can quote a special price for such a long day.

Itinerary

Before the last elevator goes up at 9 pm you will have a chance to see Taipei's city lights from the Taipei 101 observation deck at 382 meters on the 89th floor before it closes at 10 pm. Add night pictures to your memories at Liberty square surrounded by the National Theater and National Concert Hall and the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall (its doors close by 6 pm).

After your optional meal we can visit some of the many temples, and learn how to ask for fortune. We browse shops and street markets, to get familiar with our food, snacks, fruits and tea - anything you'd like. We'll try to travel to as many places as we can from your starting point.

Favorite night markets are Huaxi Street or 'snake street', Raohe Street, Tunghua Street. Shilin night market - Taipei's biggest (but hyped and crowded) is partially indoors and underground. We'll choose one best for our route.

Note: This evening tour is an ideal extension of 'Easy Taipei' or add-on for tours during the same day

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: your Taipei hotel lobby or Taipei Main station.

End location: wherever you choose to continue to go on your own.

Duration: 4 hours

Taipei's metro or 'MRT' is the fastest way to get around, and usually the city buses in their own lanes are too. There are many inexpensive yellow taxis to fill any gap in our route. Public transport ends before midnight.

We'll keep an eye on the weather, try to stay indoors when it's too hot or raining.

Transportation

The metro connects all corners of metropolitan Taipei. From there we may connect with city buses, or take taxis when you want to save time.

Please let me know any mobility, medical and diet concerns in advance. Have your own medical and travel insurance up to date for this trip.

A Recent Review of this tour

Christine & Jan were excellent tour guides showing us the highlights of Taipei during the calm of night. They were quite attentive to our endless questions and always ready to adjust the tour to our liking. We had a blast exploring with Christine and her endless knowledge of this beautiful city!
