When you think about it, night markets are the pinnacle dream of any food lover. You come hungry, leave happy, and if you're still hungry - you pass by McDonald's on your way home. What a time to be alive. The only downside, is that night markets can be rather distant for some people. The Richmond Night Market is nearly at the airport, and an hour-something commute each way.
