Taiwan Kaohsiung Night Market Liuhe

2 April 2011

Yep, more night markets

After a bit of research, I found out that theres an entire street full of computer and gadget stores nearby my hotel.
It was pretty good, they had lots of shelves full of every kind of ram, video card etc. As well as ipads and the cheap no name tablets.
What they didnt have was anything made by Archos at all, what I really wanted was a case thing for my new tablet I picked up in Hong Kong.

The stations here are really far apart, where as in Hong Kong, Taipei, Tokyo and Sydney they are easily walkable, here its a good 30 minutes between stations.
However I eventually got to the Liohou night market. This one was a bit more upmarket than the Taipei one, and due to the wider roads easier to navigate.
The annoying thing was there were many Japanese tour groups, complete with a flag bearing leader marching at top speed through the market with all their luggage looking lost and distressed. No one ever looks as confused as a Japanese tourist.

3 updates today! No one should ever complain I dont provide original content.

This is I presume some kind of open drain, yet theres no smell. I have generally noticed in Taiwan that it is kept clean by an army of people every morning, but more than that theres no problems with drains and odours like there is in Hong Kong, London, Paris.

And this is the night market. It goes on like this for at least 2km. The sign says it closes at 5am, during the day its a very busy road. This is not just one or two nights a week, this runs every night, and theres lots of them. At least 6 different night markets in walking distance from my hotel, each of them is removed from the streets in the morning in time for peak hour.

Heres my dinner, various bread like things and some miso soup. The Miso was really strong, but the bread was nice. I was amazed, a teenage boy made everything from scratch, took about 15 minutes, he rolled out the dough and stuffed it and rolled it and grilled/fried it to order.
