Betel Nut Beauties Of Taiwan


Betel nut beauty refers to a young woman selling betel nuts, drinks, snacks and cigarettes from a brightly lit glass enclosure while wearing revealing clothing along roadsides in Taiwan. The Betel nut girls main clientele consists of male taxi or truck drivers, who stop for a quick fix of the natural stimulant while on the road. These men are naturally attracted to the skimpy outfits, but the addictive nut keeps them awake for long driving shifts.



The Betel nut girl tradition began in the late 1960s at the Shuangdong Betel Nut Stand, where glamorous ‘Shuangdong Girls’ were employed. Betel nut use also causes up to 80 percent of oral cancers in Taiwan, which was another cause for concern. The betel-nut beauties were banned from Taipei City in 2007, and a strict dress code was enforced in other areas.


The girls are now required to follow the ‘Three B’s’ rule – cover their breasts, buttocks, and bellies at all times.  Nowadays they can only be found sporadically in the suburbs and around motorway interchanges. Even there, the clothes they wear are no longer so revealing.
