One example of something Taiwan is famous for is its night markets. It is estimated that Taiwan has 300 night markets located throughout the country, as of 2015. The night markets sell a variety of products, but are best known for their food stalls.
The street food sold at Taiwan's night markets is called xiao-chi, which means "small eats." Popular items include grilled snacks, bubble tea, stinky tofu and oyster omelets.
The Taiwan Bureau of Tourism estimates that 70 percent of tourists to the area visit one of the night markets. Some well-known night markets include Fengjia Night Market, Tainan Flower Night Market and Shilin Night Market, which opened in 1899.
