You’ve been needing a vacation for a while now and you’re not ready to hop on a plane just yet?
No worries, we’ve got just the thing for you and your entire family this month.
The Asian Night Market just started roughly two weeks back and it’s one of the most buzzing family-friendly spots in town right now.
Set in the vast expanse of Aspire Park, the market is celebrating the diversity and richness of Asian cuisine and culture and you’ll find pretty much every delicious dish you’ve ever tried during your travels.
You’ll even find those adorable floating lanterns that you’ve always wanted for your house.
More than 30 restaurants are offering food from cuisines such as Korean, Thai, Filipino, Indian, Pakistani and Arabic.
There are many local speciality cafés selling desserts, ice creams, frozen yoghurt and the huge popular bubble tea as well (you’ll probably find us queuing up here).
It’s not just food that we’re looking forward to. The market is pretty vibrant and you’ll find a little bit of everything.
So if you want to shop, there are garments, cosmetics, kitchenware and even toys for the little ones.
You’ll find loads of creatively decorated booths that will highlight the countries they are representing, so we suggest keeping your cameras ready, too.
You’ll likely end up stopping at many of these booths, not just for pictures but for all the exciting things on offer, especially for children, such as henna, face painting, photo booths and plenty more.
Asian culture is not just rich with food – there’s so much more to it. And to make this market even more exciting, there will be a host of live performances on the weekends.
Schools and community groups will put together dance acts and other modern productions for anyone who visits the Asian Night Market.
We’re already making a list of everything we’re going to eat (and shop) at this market.
Free. Oct 17-Nov 16, 5pm-midnight. Children’s play area, Aspire Park, Al Waab (4441 7005).
