Tainan’s Old West Market (台南西市場) is located in West Central District. This market is one of the largest market in the South of Taiwan. It is one of the places you should visit in Tainan. It keeps a lot of traditional things in the market.
This is the first place I have visited in Tainan besides my internship. It is a great way to start my second day in Tainan to understand more about the city. We entered the market from Street. My first impression of the market is that the market is very old. I really like those pictures on the wall. Those are photos about life of people in the market.
When we entered to the market, I was so surprised with the atmosphere inside. There were stalls selling meat or vegetables in the past.
The roof of the market is the thing I felt impressed the most. The architecture looks amazing.
I love the way people keep their culture by living here although they are very rich and they can move to other places.
There is a shop inside selling cute things. They sell stationary things with great design. Although the price is expensive, people still come here and buy them.
And the textile is very traditional Chinese. You can book tailors to have your clothes made by them.
