Guide to Gongguan Night Market

Gongguan is Taipei City’s largest student district, which has the National Taiwan University (NTU) Gongguan Campus. It also has a small night market that I recommend visiting to indulge in Taiwanese cuisine. 

I’ve lived in Taiwan for over 4 years and have visited Gongguan Night Market many times. Though there isn’t too much to the night market, it still helps to know what foods to try and nearby things to do.

To help you determine whether it’s worth visiting this tourist hotspot, I’ll cover the following:

Let’s dive in.

What is the difference between Taiwanese and American burgers? The Taiwanese burger consists of pork meat, cilantro, pickled cabbage, and peanut powder between fluffy white buns. Although it may sound unusual, it is actually delicious.

The Michelin guide provides an in-depth look at Lan Jia’s burgers [1].

However, I cannot distinguish between this burger and others I have tried in Taiwan. Perhaps my taste buds are not very discerning.

If you are in the area, I suggest visiting the Gongguan Night Market, which is small compared to larger markets like Shilin.

List of places to visit near Gongguan Night Market.

The Gongguan Shopping District offers many restaurants and shops for those seeking more food options. If you haven’t had enough to eat at the night market, consider checking out some of these establishments. I do not have any specific recommendations, however.

The Flea Market is typically open during the day and offers a variety of secondhand or unused items at affordable prices. If you’re looking to get a good deal, this is the best flea market I have found.

Aside from the one in Tianmu.

Treasure Hill used to serve as a military outpost during the Japanese Empire’s rule of Taiwan, but it eventually became a residential settlement. During the last week of March until early May, local residents display 20-30 art exhibitions and host a market.

There is also a temple located in the area.

Alternatively, you can visit the water park on a hot day, check out the bug exhibits at the museum, or explore the waterfront. This area frequently holds events and riverside markets.


If you’re in the area, visit Gongguan Night Market to try the scallion pancakes and Taiwanese burgers. And if the night market is a letdown, visit one of the various nearby attractions.
