Ruifeng Night Market is the biggest and most diverse of the night markets in Kaohsiung, which unfortunately, makes it a very touristic place. Besides food, there are stalls selling accessories, bags, clothes, and items for your pets. You will also get to have a little fun participating in carnival games. Here are 5 exciting things you can do at this night market.


#1 – Feast on Traditional Taiwanese Food

Expect common Taiwanese street foods such as stinky tofu, braised food, and salt & pepper chicken, just to name a few. If you have gotten bored of eating the same street snacks that you can find at other night markets, you should try the “creative” ones specially curated by some stalls at Ruifeng Night Market (read on!).


#2 – Challenge Yourself & Try Gimmicky Street Snacks

Those with adventurous taste buds should try the one and only toast stall at the night market which sells bubble tea toast, matcha azuki toast, and a variety of many other interesting toasts. Sounds kind of weird right? But, don’t worry, the taste wasn’t that bad. The toast was nicely slathered with a matcha spread before being stuffed with chewy muah chee and red beans. I like its crisp exterior. The bubble tea toast was a hit too.


#3 – Have Dessert at 東門茶樓

Situated just right beside the night market, this café is a great escape from the crazy night market crowd. Furthermore, it’s air-conditioned so you can rest your tired feet while cooling yourself down with an iced dessert. The Abundant Matcha Snow Ice came with red beans, tang yuan, matcha balls and matcha pudding. The contrasting textures and flavours made this a wonderful dessert.

#4 – Shop ‘Till You Drop


With hundreds of stalls selling a range of products, be prepared to bargain for good deals when you set your eyes on something you like.


#5 – Play Carnival Games

There are games such as baseball, throwing rings, shooting balloons, mahjong, and other recreation booths to keep both the young and old entertained at Ruifeng Night Market.

Be warned that this night market can get extremely crowded due to its narrow lanes, but scooters and cars are not allowed inside the night market, so it’s quite safe. Although this night market is massive and offers many food options, I still prefer Ling Ya Night Market when it comes to the taste of the food.
