When my Dad visited Taiwan in 2007 I took him to Snake Alley, the famous night market in the Wen Hua distric of Taipei. Snake Alley is something to behold. Everything is for sale there and most things imaginable can be eaten there too. They have all kinds of reptiles and seafood in the restaurants. This is old Taipei at its best, really old. My Dad's thoughts are expressed in the video below.
If you ever visit Taipei, Snake Alley is a must, but not for the faint hearted. Enjoy the video!
lol...sounds like my kind of place. I like the weird and unusual. many props to your dad...hahaReplyDelete
Yes, it is a strange strange place. Many of the markets in Taiwan have become overly sanitized. This market remains the same. I do feel sorry for the animals though but if you are ever in Taipei, its worth the visit.ReplyDelete
