Fu Hang Dou Jiang 阜杭豆漿 – Hype or Worth it?

It’s located literally right next to the Shandao Temple MRT and up the stairs of the market basically. It’s centrally and conveniently located but is it worth the line?

Take the MRT to Taipower Building station台電大樓 on the GREEN LINE. Then take exit 4 and then just follow the crowd. This night market isn’t particularly obvious.

We madeContinue reading “Exploring Tainan Part 4 – August 2015”
