Mayor Attends Opening Banquet for Shilin Night Market

Mayor Ko Wen-je presided over the dinner banquet to celebrate the opening of the renovated Shilin Night Market in the evening of January 12.
During his address, he noted that no matter which country the tourist comes from, the top three items on his or her agenda for visiting the island includes a trip to the night market.
He hopes that the Shilin Night Market can improve from good to great, setting its eyes on becoming a 5-star tourist attraction for international tourists in Taipei.
The mayor joked that he’s visiting the night market to inspect the effectiveness of the renovation and to see if local vendors require anything else. He hopes that the night market can be among the top markets in Taiwan – even thriving to become the best.
Afterwards, the mayor joined city councilors in trying out the snacks available at the night market, including oyster omelet, teppanyaki, squid soup, and sausage with sticky rice. He also praised the night market for maintaining a sanitary environment.
