Top 4 things to do in Shilin Night market:
1. Play games
Inside the night market they also have some game’s katulad ng mga makikita naten sa carnival’s or perya sa pinas.
Makakapag laro ka na in worth of 100NT$ (about 173PHP) and if you win you’ll get a prize. Usually their prize’s here are Character pillow’s or stuff toy’s, big or small but still depende sa game na nilaro mo, you can still enjoy kasi nakakatuwa yung mga Taiwanese vendors, they’re so polite sa mga turista. And I suggest Dart shooting, this is the easiest game here kung magaling kang umasinta. haha try mo lang 🙂

2. Eat Taiwanese cuisine
Hindi naten maitatanggi na we love eating diba mga pinoy diyan :)hehe. Well let me start with this, before you enter inside the market you can see all the street food’s sa roadside kaya duon palang mag-ke-crave ka na. Many tourist prefer to try the street food’s first, kasi there are some food stall na pinipilahan talaga ng mga turista kaya ma-curious ka din.
Pero kung pang dinner ang habol mo just go to the Shilin night market Food court B1 and you will discover the underground food paradise. They serve the food very fast and nakaka amaze talaga, kasi imagine sa dami ng mga costumer’s , they can still manage for the costumer not to wait so long when it come’s to order and etc.
3. Shopping souvenirs
Who doesn’t love pasalubong? syempre everyone love’s it. You can shop outside and inside the market kasi madaming ding vendor sa labas. You can buy 6 keychain’s worth of 100NT$ (about173PHP) pero syempre minsan we want discount especially when we buy a lot, di naman mahirap kausap yung mga Taiwanese vendor they give free not only one but two, haha yes i didnt got discount but i got 2 free keychain kasi they’re too friendly haha. Pero syempre hindi lang keychains ang mabibili mo meron ding:
- Sale clothes
- Ref magnet
- Bags etc.
4. Modern Toilet Cafe
You can relax here while sitting in the lovely toilet bowl chair..Drinking beer in this type of glass was really a nice experience for us 🙂Or eating “Poo poo ice cream” na nakalagay sa weird na lalagyan and etc..
OMG guys this cafe is one of the funnest cafe i’ve been ever been. Di ako maka get over sa ambiance ng facility nila.
You should try their Curry na nakalagay sa cute mini toilet bowl, it look’s disgusting but when you taste it “wow” its perfect and its was nice and really worth experience for na kumain sa weird na toilet stuffs!
