Day #23 – Eating Out | Tonghua通化 Night Market

Taiwan 2018

Updated: June 22, 2018

I began the day by being late to class, almost. It takes about 15 or so minutes to walk to school, and I left two minutes past 10:00(school starts 10:10). So, I rented a bike and got to school in about 3 minutes. Problem avoided.

The second problem of the day was where to go for lunch. We had planned on going to a Hainanese chicken rice place, but it was closed. After walking a little further, we settled on a little store, and I had some chicken fried rice.

Since today is Friday, I had some time to go out. We rode the YouBikes over to Tonghua(通化) Night Market. The night market is located at the intersection between Tonghua Street(通化街,tong1hua4jie1) and Linjiang Street (臨江街,lin2jiang1jie1).

The market is really busy even later in the night, compared to other night markets like Danshui. It had all kinds of food and people lining up to buy it. However, I didn’t think it was super great. I felt there was more clothing and other items than actual food. I recommend shilin and especially banqiao over it. If you want to see for yourself, watch today’s vlog.
