If you walk for about 10 minutes from the area where there are many tea vendors, you will reach the Ningxia Night Market. It is not so far away. There are many night markets in Taiwan, including some outside of Taipei. And they are all tourist attractions. The atmosphere of the stalls lining the streets is reminiscent of Japanese festivals.
The big difference between this and Japan's fair is that in Japan, food stalls are only set up during festivals, but in Taiwan, the night market is a permanent fixture. It depends on the night market, but they are open almost everyday. I feel that the market should be turned into a shopping district, don't you think?
Since I didn't think too much about it, the stalls in the Ningxia Night Market were not yet open. The corridor through the middle of the night market was deserted. As I walked along, I saw a mother and a little girl in the middle of the market. The mother was grabbing a worker at the night market and asking her something. I wondered if she had lost her way. The whole time she was asking, the little girl was holding onto her mother's clothes tightly.
