(1) Night Market

Night Market was well known as it was shown in a Globe Trekker episode. Also many YouTube videos are uploaded.
However, it was hard to comprehend this phenomenon until you were actually in Taipei (and other major cities in Taiwan).
It was hot in Taiwan. Even the time I was there (mid-Oct), the temperature was very high (Max temp: around 90F). Therefore, people were staying outside after sunset. It is just a natural thing to do (as the crime rate in Taiwan is very low. I felt very safe anytime/everywhere in Taiwan).

Taipei has multiple Night Markets but all of them were equally crowded even on weekday nights.

You can find a place to eat (just off from the main street).

I noticed people were sitting in front of a temple.

They were watching an American movie (I couldn't tell which American movie). The movie was dubbed in Chinese. I found that American Hollywood movies were quite popular in Taiwan.

I didn't stay very late in the Night Market I visited, so I don't know if the Night Market ever ended. It was a safe and healthy atmosphere (except there were a bunch of sugar-laden drinks).
