I went to Taiwan with the objective, among others, of savouring Taiwanese street food. Chief among the food streets was the famous Shilin Night Market, the biggest in Taiwan.
Having not eaten anything since this morning, and with the Fuyuan Pepper Bun stall (N25.05020° E121.51558°) closed, I was famished for food.
Before coming here, I had been reading from blogs and watching Youtube videos on how to get here. I knew that the MRT station to alight at was MRT Jiantan station and that there was a large underground food court in Shilin. Shiilin was a large place but there was no clear direction on how to get to the food court on foot from MRT Jiantan station. I hope the photos and map on this page would help readers who are in the same situation as I was.
At MRT Jiantan station, take Exit 1. Outside at the entrance, you would see lots of people on the street to your right. People would be walking to the right to an intersection, where you would see more people waiting for the traffic light to turn green for pedestrian to cross over. Once you are across the road, you could either take Wenlin Road or Jihe Road. Shilin food court is along Jihe Road.
