You think your job is hard because your boss smells like onions and Dave listens to the same Beatles album every day, huh? Try being 80 and plucking pig hairs at a market in Taipei.
While miserable housewives soak in the expensive hot spring hotels only blocks away on their husband's dime, chaos ensues at Beitou Market as low-level mafia folks desperately peddle vegetables and grandma tries to sell her last piece of silver to pay for dentures.
⚡ +200 Points: Find the drunk people doing KTV on the second floor of the indoor market.

This market seems to be a bit more focused on beauty and fashion. There are a lot of clothing vendors and freelance eyebrow threaders in tents along the sidewalk. Bring the wife down here and buy her new lingerie for her boyfriend to enjoy while you're at work!
📍 Address: No. 3, Huarong Street, Shilin District, Taipei City, 111
This is a very upscale traditional market for rich people. It should be interesting to compare and contrast this place with the other day markets. For instance people here have the luxury of working under air conditioning, something people in other markets would kills for, and that you take for granted you little prick!

Zi Qiang Traditional Market
This abandoned house doubles as a honey farm which is cool because they give tours and show you all the bees. Once they're done showing you the honey farm you can ask to go upstairs and explore freely.
This place seems to have been quarters for an American military officer here during the 50s. You see the sad thing about military officers is that they often deploy to places like Taiwan with beautiful women but are usually already married to disgusting Karens. Sadly there is no medal for this hardship either.
