Check out the Shilin Night Market for a Sample of Taiwan!

From Taiwanese food to films, the night market is a beaming entity of culture

A melting pot of cultures and cuisines, Singapore’s ever-growing landscape of entertainment and leisure is testament to our love for experiencing the world from our own backyard.

Enter Shilin Night Market!

A themed night market based on its famed namesake, the Shilin Night Market is a unique opportunity to witness the sights, smell and sounds of an iconic feature of the Taiwanese night life.

Spanning six days from the 19th to 21st and the 26th to 28th of April, the Shilin Night Market promises to fulfil the four essential elements for a good time: eat, shop, play, and fun.


Call it the Singaporean way, but the first step to acquainting with just about any culture is getting the measure of their delicacies. Steadily gaining popularity over the last few years locally, the variety of Taiwanese delights promises to be as vast as the 200,000 square feet layout of the night market!

With five dining zones strategically placed across the event, dining at the Shilin Night Market is not only convenient, but also done in style with Airmocks.

No Asian nightlife experience is complete without the hustle and bustle of a teeming shopping district. Boasting participants from Singapore and Taiwan, expect a wide range of products by the event’s official brand partners as well as creative makers from both nations.

Find something familiar amidst this foreign exhibit with nostalgia-inducing arcade booths and carnival games. If you’re looking to do something productive, catch a glimpse of your future or begin building your pop star career with the Power K! karaoke booths. Alternatively, throw on a layer of meaningfulness to your evening and leave a supportive message on lanterns for the many people supported by the Make-A-Wish Foundation!

From hundreds of lanterns to the Instagram darling windmill forest, the Shilin Night Market promises to be teeming with fun activities. But if it’s more Taiwanese culture you’re looking for, make your way to the free cinema by Popcorn.

Known for their island-wide pop-up cinemas, Popcorn’s pit stop guarantees a laid back experience allowing you to complete your cultural immersion with classic Taiwanese films such as Black & White: The Dawn of Justice, At Cafe 6, Eat Drink Man Woman, and The Fierce Wife Final Episode.

From live music to impressive lantern displays, the Shilin Night Market is an opportunity to sample the Taiwanese nightlife before taking that inevitable trip over. With free admission, as well as convenient shuttle services, expect your weekends to carry a distinctive cultural flair!

UPDATE:The Pop-Up cinema will also be featuring some of the best local short films from Scape’s NYFA’s catalogue!
