Visit night market is a part of Taiwanese life. Due to the pandemic this year, Taitung become the most popular touristic place in Taiwan. According to the statistics of the Taitung Department of Environmental Protection, the quantity of refuse this June was 386 metric tons more than the same period last year. In other words, the increase of 12 to 13 metric tons of refuse each day causes a severe burden on the environment.
In order to remedy the situation, the Taitung County Government, Taitung Department of Environmental Protection, and Taitung Tourism Night Market Promotion Association have cooperated to foster a comfortable and environmentally friendly night market environment. Due to their efforts, Taitung Tourism Night Market has been recognized as one of 22 eco-friendly demonstration night markets in the country, and has been awarded as a 2-stars market by the Ministry of Economic Affairs of Taitung!
