One of the best ways to know a place and its people is to explore its traditional markets. These can be anything from indoor to outdoor food or flea markets and bazaars1. Just about every place in the world has one, and people in Taiwan are witness to that since the night markets here are world-famous. Local and foreign residents2 alike also enjoy shopping at the numerous open-air3 markets scattered throughout the various communities.
要瞭解某個地方及住在當地的居民,最好的方法之一就是探索那裡的傳統市場。這些市場可能是室內或室外的各種菜市場和跳蚤市集。世界上幾乎每個地方都有一座市集,而台灣民眾就是這一點的最佳見證,因為這裡的夜市可是名聞遐邇。本土與外國籍的居民也都很喜歡在散佈於各個社區中的眾多露天市集裡購物。
 
Our neighbors to the southwest have their own fascinating marketplaces4. The Chatuchak Weekend Market in Bangkok, Thailand is one of the largest in the world. Spread over 35 acres5, the market is divided into 27 sections that include more than 15,000 vendors selling countless products from all over the country. An average of 200,000 potential buyers wander each Saturday and Sunday through its maze of stores selling goods that include art, antiques, electronics6, clothes, and even live animals. What's more, booths7 offer delicious Thai street food and relaxing Thai massages, making it one impressive market. With National Geographic Channel's new series, "Market Values," viewers get to see all this and more.
