Why Qingguang Market is special ?
The Qingguang Open-air Market located in Zhongshan District was famous for the wide varieties of foreign goods sold in the shops in the earlier years. However, in recent years, Taiwanese travel overseas frequently, hence the demands for foreign goods in Qingguang Open-air Market have gradually decreased and this causes a change to the business mix. Nowadays, the Qingguang Open-air Market from Nongan St. to Shuangcheng St. is a small but modern shopping district, with well organized shops and a food court full of delicacies.

Other than the shops, this night market also has delicacies that people praise about and will definitely satisfy one's taste buds.
