The watch repair shop at Neiwei Flea Market in Kaohsiung. He was so focused on what he was doing, never looking up from the job at hand, that I don’t think he even noticed I was there.
Location: Neiwei Flea Market, Kaohsiung, Taiwan.
Neiwei flea market (內惟跳蚤市場) is one of the bigger second-hand markets in Kaohsiung, the other being the Shiquan Road flea market (十全跳蚤市場), which I’ll cover in a separate post.
The main entrance to the market is on Juiru 4th Road (九如四路), but I found parking for my scooter in one of the side streets so I entered the market from there. The market is a giant rectangle with small shops lining the outer walls on the right and back. The rest of the area is split between makeshift shops and stalls with their stuff spread out on mats.
