Taipei Photo Tour: Huaxi Street Night Market aka Snake Alley, a covered shopping arcade in Wanhua

If you visit Lungshan Temple on a hot summer day, you can cool off in the shade of a nearby covered arcade called Snake Alley (aka Huaxi Street Night Market).  The shortest path is along Guangzhou Street, but that is a busy street where pedestrians share the road with cars and motorcycles.  Instead, take a two min stroll through Sanshui Street:

The entrance to Sanshui Street is so narrow, it’s easy to miss:

If you are coming straight from Lungshan Temple Station (instead of from Lungshan Temple), this will be the first entrance to Sanshui Street:

Take a right when you exit Sanshui Street, and you’ll see the entrance to Huaxi Street Night Market:

When you get to Guilin Road, you may wish to take a short detour to 7-11:

Turning westwards, 7-11 is straight ahead on the left:
