The Bucket List: 8 Awesome Night Markets in Asia

Asia has a lot to offer travelers, from vibrant cultures and traditions to amazing food and breathtaking architecture, whether modern skyscrapers, sacred temples or ancient palaces and fortresses. Another thing you can and should experience across the continent is the plethora of markets. What they sell and what purpose they serve varies. Some occupy streets while others are tucked away underground. There are day markets, dry markets, wet markets, fish markets, food markets, textile markets and more, but the night markets are among the best. From Hong Kong to Ho Chi Minh, these are eight of our favorite. No matter if you’re hoping to find the perfect memento to take home, delight in the local cuisine or just looking to people watch, these markets will not disappoint.
