The reason why I recommend this place at night is because the night market is just next to it. Also night lighting allows better pictures and it’s a great place to finish your tour!

Many Taoist gods to pray to. Would be beneficial to foreigners if there are more English descriptions but it might probably dilute the Chinese culture in this holy site. Would still be a good place to visit when finding the place of worship.

The temple is packed and full of life. The architectural details are beautiful and the temple is very accessible via MRT. However, you can chose to walk from Ximending to here if you like.

Yes, there are 2-3 a few blocks from Longshan Temple on the left, right, and behind. Can't remember their names, but one of them is the famous 'Snake Alley' night market.
