The China Post - - LOCAL -

Night mar­kets are one of Tai­wan's most pop­u­lar tourist at­trac­tions, and one in par­tic­u­lar — the Fengjia Night Mar­ket in Taichung — has drawn more in­ter­est online in Tai­wan than any other, ac­cord­ing to an online data anal­y­sis.

Fengjia Night Mar­ket was been dubbed as the largest of its kind in Tai­wan and is rec­og­nized as the ori­gin of many of the coun­try's most pop­u­lar snacks, such as crepes, pep­per cakes and takoy­aki ( Ja­pane­ses­tyle oc­to­pus balls), the Dai­lyView Online Ther­mome­ter re­ported Satur­day.

The Dai­lyView, a Chi­nese- lan­guage web ser­vice that an­a­lyzes the online cir­cu­la­tion of cur­rent events, combed through the words of online posts and ar­ti­cles men­tion­ing night mar­kets and found that Fengjia Night Mar­ket was the most talked about venue of its kind on the In­ter­net.

It was fol­lowed by the Shilin Night Mar­ket in Taipei and the Luodong Night Mar­ket in Yi­lan County, the re­port said.

The Shilin Night Mar­ket is of­ten se­lected as a "must-see" des­ti­na­tion for for­eign visi­tors, while the Luodong Night Mar­ket is known for its spring onion pan­cakes and tapi­oca balls filled with red bean paste, it said.

The other night mar­kets on the Dai­lyView Top 10 list were the Gar­den Night Mar­ket in Tainan, which ranked fourth, fol­lowed by the Keelung Night Mar­ket, the Kent­ing Night Mar­ket in Ping­tung County, the Ruifeng Night Mar­ket and the Li­uhe Night Mar­ket in Kaoh­si­ung, and the Ningxia Night Mar­ket and the Shida Night Mar­ket in Taipei.

The rank­ing was based on an anal­y­sis of data col­lected be­tween Dec. 17, 2014 and June 17 this year, ac­cord­ing to Dai­lyView.
