Beimen Qian Lai Ye Grocery Store(北門錢來也雜貨店)




When a scene of the popular idol drama The Prince Who Turns Into a Frog (王子變青蛙), (home of the female protagonist )was shot at Qian Lai Ye Grocery Store (錢來也雜貨店), it briefly became a kind of pilgrimage site for t fans of the show. Originally built in 1952 as the Taiwan Salt Workers' Welfare Store (台鹽鹽工福利社), the traditional tiled bungalow was a place for salt workers to buy daily essentials, as well as a recreational center. But in 2001, when the Beimen salt fields closed down, the building was left empty. In 2003, the building was rebuilt, giving this long-established symbol of local industry a new facade. The walls of the entire building were decorated using local discarded saltpan tiles, conch shells and oyster shells, and the courtyard was hung with conch shells and floating balls, turning it into the "Shell House" (貝殼屋) with its unique ocean style. It is a must-see photo opportunity for tourists visiting Beimen.
