Introduce

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.

    It is jus a really small provision shop and nothing much inside. Some old toys but not very interesting. Can skip unless you happen to pass by .

    Not very much to see, but if you go to salt fields, may combine it as a 1-day tour wiht other attractions.

    好像跟什麼偶像劇有關,但我沒研究,就在北門,這一帶觀光區的起點,其實就是商店,有點像古時候的雜貨店,可以發現一些懷念的東西,但價格當然是現代觀光地價,不怎麼便宜,另外有些雜貨店食物以現代眼光看是既不健康也不衛生,要不要嘗試建議還是一點點就好,最後我只買了飲料,有開發票蠻意外的。

    大大的『錢來也』招牌很吸睛,外面的牆壁用貝殼拼貼起來別有一番風味,內部空間不大,販售各式各樣古早味零食、玩具、紀念品,讓人非常懷念,不知是否因為空間太小,走幾步路有一間標榜新錢來也商店,裡面的商品更多樣,到這裡還能順遊北門遊客中心,裏頭有具抹香鯨的標本。

    舊屋改建的紀念品及雜貨販賣店

    Traveler rating:3 2017-08

    位於北門遊客中心外路旁,由舊平房改建的雜貨及紀念品販售商店,但銷售的商品並沒有很特別,價格也說不是優惠,但周遭環境頗適合拍照。
