The Night Market has opened for the season so I decided to go for a quick visit. took the skytrain to Bridgeport and walked to the market from there, only took a few minutes bu there was an interesting line of excited young people mostly walking along the sidewalks to the market. Entering the market I found lots of people working for the market hawking express tickets for entry, claiming that the line up to get in was 1 1/2 hour long to get in, this was shortly after it opened around 7:30 pm. I smiled and walked through to the entrance and asked about the senior pricing as I am a senior haha. I was directed to enter via the exit, I walked to the exit and was ushered in quickly. Not sure why as a senior I get in for free but I do appreciate it.
Inside, lots of loud music and activity, lots of booths selling various stuff, lots of phone accessories. Korean socks all over the place plus lots of other things such as jewelry, t-shirts, and those new must have toys, the Spinner. then you come to the food section. An overwhelming amount of food and drink booths, lots and lots of food, all very well organized and ample places to sit down and eat your selections. There is also a fun fair area with the typical games and rides etc.
