There is a lot to dine and shop for during the EmQuartier Taiwan One More Time fair, which will return to the EmQuartier shopping complex from Friday until SundayJune 21-2.

Held in collaboration with the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Thailand, the fifth edition of the fair will bring Taiwanese specialities to the heart of Bangkok in the form of Taiwanese-style night market at the Quartier Avenue, ground floor.

This is a good chance to try Taiwan's favourite treats such as gingko lin, a healthy premium snack made with natural ingredients; authentic Taiwanese tea and home-made shaved ice from Wan Desserts; signature pineapple cream-cheese pie from the Pastry Secret; ginger tea drink; peanut ice cream roll, a famous treat from Yilan County; Castella, a soft sponge cake; and Gua Bao, Taiwanese steam bun with pork belly.

A variety of souvenir shops will exhibit at the night market and everyone is invited to join a DIY lantern workshop to be conducted by Taiwan Tourism on Sunday at 4.30pm, free of charge.
