Truth to be told, one of the cons is the street walk's signage are mostly written in Chinese so it is deliberately difficult to read for non-Chinese readers (If you can speak that is a plus !) . However, they are able to comprehend and converse limited, but understandable English, so there would not be a problem to successfully paying for your food and getting to know them as well. If you are a traveller, you might experience déjà vu as the street walk is strikingly similar to the Taiwanese night market. Nevertheless, here are the information that could be of help to get you there. Bon Voyage !
