We wanted to have a look at what the betel nut industry in #Taiwan
is all about.
The Betel nut is a combination of Areca Nut & Betel Leaf that is chewed and acts as a stimulant. In Taiwan the Areca Palm grows in many regions of the island, especially in the south.
Betel Nut has been used by aboriginal tribes dating back thousands of years, and is the 2nd largest crop in Taiwan. It is sold all over Taiwan, bright colourful flashing lights indicate a shop. In many cases the Betel Nut shops employ young attractive girls who's job it is to make the Betel Nut as well as sell and attract customers. https://vimeo.com/81069630
