Our Raohe Night Market Experience
Ownrides dropped us near the entrance of the night market. We asked them to drop us off here instead of our hotel because it was our last destination before going back to the hotel. We first noticed the huge temple, and in-front of it is the entrance to the night market.
There is a lot of food stalls in the night market.
Some stalls even have small tables and chairs so their customers can eat comfortably.
Here are some of the dishes which are for sale in Raohe Night Market.
The seashells are a bit pricey but the price looks just right because they are fresh.
Cheesy Chicken legs
We really love how these lollipops were designed, the Disney character is in the middle of the clear sweet candy.
There are also a lot of famous food souvenirs for sale in the night market.
The prices of the food souvenirs here are okay, although, the prices in the Ximending area are a bit cheaper.
Shoes and Clothes
There are also shoes and clothes for sale in the night market.
We also saw a store that sells pets, specifically fishes and turtles.
Happy and Busy’s Smileys for Raohe Night Market
The night market is nice, there is a lot of food choices, clothing stores, and there is a temple too.
It’s so easy to go to and easy to locate.
The place really feels like a night market, it’s kinda hard to move around because of the tight spaces.
Value for money
The costs of each item for sale has reasonable prices.
Service of each stall were okay.
Not applicable. We are not sure if there is a comfort room around, we didn’t needed one while we were there.
