Tainan’s nightlife is pretty fun and lively, with a distinctly retro look and feel to many of the best joints. Expect houses with ‘70s-style décor, a small snack menu and an impressive choice of European beers. If you’re hoping to find the same high-energy nightclubs you can enjoy in Taipei, you’re out of look. The vibe is a lot more relaxed here.

Night markets make up a big part of the nightlife in Tainan, just as they do most cities in Taiwan. Street food stalls are the star attraction, but you’ll also find a good choice of discount souvenirs and trinkets and, in most cases, a few fairground games, too. If you want to feel the local after-dark atmosphere, a night market is usually the best place to start.
