Because Taiwan have a lot of roadside stalls and night markets, food pricing are so much cheaper compared to in Australia. Road side stalls are considered a big part of Taiwan culture. On the weekdays, the night markets could be open from 4 in the afternoon till say about midnight. And, for weekends, it could open at 3 in the afternoon till 3am the following day.
One thing good about the train station here were that they had announcements in multiple languages such as English, mandarin, Hakka and Taiwan language. Thus, making it easy for foreigners to know which stop they had to go down. This made travelling much easier in Taiwan.
Even on the Train maps, it has both English language and Mandarin, so it is much easier to plan trips around Taipei..
