Michael Turton's webpage Betel Nut Girls of Taiwan has a vast collection of betel nut girl photos.
Photos of betel nut beauties can be found in numerous places on the internet. The links here are to some of the more interesting photos. Some of the photos also help to show the context in which the girls work. They usually sit in boxes with large glass windows. The betel nut stands are located on road sides, often in industrial areas, where Taiwan's ugly side is evident.
I have credited the source of the photos wherever possible.
