This sprawling flea market in Neiwei may possibly offer one of the most authentic and fabulous experiences of Taiwan. You'll find everything under the sun here and then some. Cut-and-paste shard figurines, Japanese swords, marionettes, dehumidifiers – you name it – and of course, clothes, jewellery and furniture. The best thing about this place, however, is the snapshots of ordinary Kaohsiung life it offers, like chess players with a puppy tucked under one arm or an impromptu Sunday-morning jam session.
Neiwei is an old town in the southeastern corner of Gushan District.
