Taiwanese night-market - food section

Living in a Taiwanese town and wondering what’s to do? Let me help you out a bit. It sounds like a somewhat naive question, but I get that alot, even in relatively bustling lively Taiwanese towns. I got that in Tainan atleast a dozen times this past year, mostly from students. As I know …
