Liuhe Night Market

Exciting night market in the city center

Liuhe Night Market Kaohsiung

Liuhe Night Market (六合夜市) is Kaohsiung’s oldest, most popular night market. It’s not to be missed, especially as it’s so close to Formosa Boulevard Station, another must see in its own right.

Starting way back in the 1950s, the market slowly grew into the city’s most prosperous and diverse night market. There are almost 150 stalls along the street, which is pedestrianized in the evening, offering local foods to try for a reasonable price, plus games for the kids and some clothing for sale. Particularly famous are the beef steak houses and the salty shrimp stalls, many of which proudly use local produce.

How to get there

The market is a short walk from Formosa Boulevard Station. The station is a short ride from Kaohsiung Station (2 minutes, NT$20), and is located on both the red and orange lines of the Kaohsiung Metro. Head out of exit 11 and you’ll see the night market down Liuhe 2nd Road to your left. To avoid the naughty moped riders and see all the stalls, it’s recommended to head up one side of the street first, then return down the other side. There are some bicycle rental stations outside Formosa Boulevard Station.

After writing a few books about Japan and New Zealand, I've decided to explore Taiwan and put my expertise into writing about this beautiful place. I love to travel around Taiwan!
