Filed Under: Night Market, Bargaining.

It is a little surprising that someone as young and attractive as Olivia has such passion for the crowded and noisy night markets of . She has a simple reason for her love of shopping at these lively spots, the opportunity of bargaining, bargaining, and more bargaining.

We can tell how sincere she is about her hobby when we met at the marketplace. Even though the primary objective was doing the interview, she purchased a belt, a pair of shoes. We also had a very reasonably priced meal of Thai food before we turned on the microphone.

It’s true that there is no place like the Taiwanese night markets in the world, and there is at least one in every city and every town of our island. You can get a fair selection of almost everything you need on a daily basis, and a great variety of Taiwanese cuisine, or even just to hang out and kill time with your buddies, the Taiwanese night markets will satisfied your every need.

There is an article about the Taiwanese night markets in The Bala Daily; we really think it is worth reading if you’re interested.

Olivia不是夜店女王,她是夜市女王。像Olivia這樣年輕、具吸引力的女孩,卻深深被喧鬧、擁擠、五味雜陳的台灣夜市吸引,因為在夜市血拼,可以不停地玩一個附帶的遊戲,殺價! 殺價! 殺價!

而且,Olivia是真心的喜歡逛夜市,雖然是約好做訪問,但是她還是精打細算的買了一條皮帶、一雙鞋子。還有,訪問前一餐經濟實惠的泰國料理。

的確,全世界找不到類似台灣夜市這樣的地方,幾乎每一個城鎮都會有一個、甚至好幾個。無論你想買任何生活必需品,或是想吃豐富多樣的台灣小吃,甚至只是想與朋友打發時間,台灣夜市都會滿足你的需要。

The Bala Daily有一篇關於台灣夜市的文章,我們認為很值得一讀!

Taiwanese night markets are the best! There is nothing like making a night out of eating deep fried something covered in MSG, and buying some pirated movies or cd's. Ahh, thats the life!
