Traveling to new cities is always an exciting adventure. One of the best ways to see a city and try local food is by visiting famous night markets. Night markets are always bustling and full of locals and foreigners trying the delights. 

Ben Thanh Night Market, Ho Chi Minh City

Here, there are lots of fun things to do in Saigon at night. The Ben Thanh market is open almost all hours of the day. It begins around 7 AM and the outside vendors don't close until around 2 AM. It's one of the oldest in Ho Chi Minh City, and the prices are always low when it comes to food (souvenirs are another story). 

The Vietnamese street food on offer is a food lovers dream. We always see locals as well as foreigners enjoying the foods, which is a great sign when it comes to authenticity. It's definitely one of the easiest ways to experience night market culture in Vietnam.

Train Night Market Ratchada, Bangkok

This is relatively new to Bangkok, but it is quickly becoming one of the most popular activities. It has four different sections. There are bars, shopping, activities, and food. These food kiosks are a great place to try various local cuisines. 

It's possible to browse the different types of food to see what looks the most delicious. Visitors can choose whatever they want, and the best part is, the food is cheap!

The Temple Street Night Market, Hong Kong 

This market is a must-see when visiting Hong Kong and really comes alive at night. The food stalls are called "dai pai dong." They offer a wide variety of foods, from noodles to seafood. 

Locals and tourists alike explore and make pitstops along the way to try new foods or get their fortunes read. Local fortune tellers can be found on every corner. Dive into Hong Kong's culture by visiting the Temple Street Night Market. 

The Ningxia Night Market, Taipei

Taipei is famous for its night markets. There are lots of different foods to be found like squid, fish balls, bawan, tofu, and oyster omelets. There are open stalls with tables set up all around. Sampling food is even more fun when sitting down to enjoy it with the local people or fellow tourists. 

Donghuamen Night Market, Beijing

This one is well-known for its very unusual foods. It's possible to find centipedes, crickets, and lizards to snack on! This place is definitely for adventurous eaters who would do well on Fear Factor. 

Most of the food stalls here advertise the menus in both English and Mandarin, which makes it great for tourists. Even if someone is an adventurous eater, they probably want to know what they are eating at least. 

Conclusions

The night markets are filled with exotic foods, culture, and local artisanal goods. Cities all around the world have night markets that draw thousands of people to them every single evening. We hope this list excites and inspires people to visit these markets while traveling.
