Yesterday, I visited Dihua Street [迪化街], Taipei’s biggest Chinese New Year market. The last time I visited was during Chinese New Year, so most of the crowds and many of the stalls were already gone. This time was extremely busy. Despite how crowded it was, everyone was in a good mood and in the holiday spirit. If you visit, be sure to go on an empty stomach, because most of the vendors give out plenty of free samples.
