Newspaper in US features Taiwanese night markets

LOS ANGELES--Taiwan's night markets have been featured in the San Jose Mercury News of California, in an article that distinguished them from street bazaars in other Asian countries.

“Sure, there are similar street scenes across the continent, from Cambodia to China. In Taiwan, however, night markets are a cherished cultural phenomenon that embraces past traditions while remaining contemporary with quick-stepping, fashionable dressed young people who flood them,” the reporter John Bourdeau wrote in a recent article.

He described Taiwan's night markets as a “senses-awaking experience — wafting smells of good food, neon lights that dazzle like disco strobes, the singsong sales pitches of hawkers with bullhorns competing with throbbing techno music.”
