After a long and tiring Friday at university, we decided to go to Hyde Park where we had heard the "Night Noodle Markets" were being held. About a quarter of the huge park is fenced off for this Asian festival, filled with lanterns, food stalls, entertainment and what seemed like a lot of seating (but wasn't). We grabbed some Thai and sat down on the covered floor with a group of friends and took in the surrounds.
Before heading to the markets, we thought that sparklers would be an entertainment fix deep into the night. So we each took a couple and spent far too long being amused by the smallest beacons of light. The Night Noodle Markets are definitely a must for fellow Sydney siders, but get in quick because they close on Saturday, October 26, 2013.
