In the past, Kinmen was brimming with a masculine vibe due to the military garrison, and therefore possessed a different atmosphere. Back then, soldiers lodged at peoples' homes, but many disputes happened. Back then, active military personnel could not get married, and due to the tense situation, Kinmen soldiers were unable to take time off. In order to prevent emotional turmoil that may arise due to soldiers living with civilians, and in order to meet their physical needs, 11 specialized tearooms were established all over the island, with "waitresses" from all over Taiwan being recruited. They provided soldiers with low priced sexual services. The tearooms were then considered a forbidden paradise for the soldiers. Nowadays, ater refurbishing and rennovations, the tearooms are open for exhibition and are located in Xiaojing Village. The red-roofed white buildings underneath the blue skies are aesthetically pleasing to look at, however they aren't the most gorgeous. It's in reality quite simple. The hall exhibits the backgrounds as well as rules and regulations back then, as well as admission tickets. On the other side, there's 4 rooms open, with their original furnishings restored, and an explanation machine will tell the story of a waitress. In 2013, director Niu Chengze directed a movie, with a part filmed at Kinmen's tearooms, "Paradise in Service". Here, you can gain a glimpse of some of Kinmen's mysterious stories and tales.
