          Hongkeng Earthen Folk Culture Village
          Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
          Your professional privater guide will pick you up at your Xiamen hotel, and then take a 2.5-hour scenic drive to the idyllic Hongkeng Earthen Folk Culture Village where you will get to know the history and related culture in the area. Hongkeng Hakka Tulou Cluster, which is listed as a World Cultural Heritage Site. Along the way, our guide will give you a brief introduction to Hongkeng, a village with a long history in the Yongding District of Fujian. There are more than 30 Tulous, a kind of Hakka earthen dwelling, arranged in an orderly fashion inside this tranquil village. Most of them were created in the Ming and Qing Dynasties (1368 - 1911). It would be rewarding to join this Xiamen day tour to Yongding Tulou to see such rare culture heritage sites. Upon arrival, you will be led to the Zhencheng Building, known as the "Eight Diagrams Building". It is famous for its magnificent outside and delicate inside design. Then, pay a visit to the palace-like Kuiju Building featuring distinctive quadrate construction. Later, our guide will accompany you to the Rusheng Building - a small compact round tower. Fuyu Building will be the last stop of this Xiamen Tulou tour.   After the tour, transfer back to Xiamen.

          Ho hum transfer
          The driver was punctual but non-conversational. It is not important to book transfers on a foreign app as there are tons of domestic chatty drivers who will give you an idea of the country on the drive

          Very interesting and unique tour
          Our English speaking guide, Jane, who was Hakka, was interesting and informative, we visited 3 of the Tulou, each one slightly different, and such a unique style of communal living - where some are living to this day, I can see this style of living will cease to exist in generations to come as it is isolated and lacks some basic facilities, at a certain age the ‘young’ are leaving for the towns and cities. The countryside is interesting with its rice terraces, banana and fruit plantations. There were racks of Persimmons and vegetables sun drying outside the fortified walls, and we got to taste some of these at the Hakka style food lunch in a restaurant in one of the villages. Janes part of the private tour we were on was a 5/5, we were picked up by car at our hotel, the driver did not speak English, and the car was a medium size sedan (with bright red interior), so there was not much leg room for my husband who is reasonably tall, and the drive is 2-3 hours each way, Jane met us nearer the villages. You will want to be warned about the driving...the drivers drive these roads daily, so know what they are doing, but it is terrifying to someone not used to the aggressive style, weaving in and out of traffic, the continual use of the horn....Wouldn’t recommend the private driver for nervous passengers.

          Total waste of time and money
          The experience was terrible from the word "GO" - we were told to queue up in a wrong queue for starters when we already had tickets, there were no seats on the upper deck and the so-called VIP areas with better viewing spots and seats were all chargeable. There were seats on the lower deck but you can't see anything at night. The cruise basically just brought all one along the bridges and Gulangyu but during the night, no one could see anything as the lighting was inadequate. 30 mins into the journey and the staff started playing silly games with the customers to pass time and to win small packets of food. OMG. The staff also shouted into their microphones on constantly hard-selling their VIP seats and souvenirs they were selling onboard. Try harder please. The 1 hour onboard was a total waste of time. Don't go for this tourist trap.

          Xiamen in April 2019
          New discoveries:current popular foods: fishball, duck noodles,and peanut soup. Superstores: Walmart and Carrefour few store assistants as very few visitors and shopper. LEDs bulbs lesser and no variety. Zhongshan St.- only electric bikes still using and very clean and quiet few pedestrians too. No more people walking their prized dogs. Gone are the smartphone shops, the classy dress shops and shoes outlets. And disappearing malls and Supermarts. Now smoothies and fruit shakes refreshment stalls aplenty. Those pearls stores and packaged/preserved snacks outlets now plentiful. And very few smokers except beside the ferry to Gulanyu terminal. Xiamen is so clean at the the 8th market, practically no flies where fresh and dried seafood openly displayed. I will definitely go to Xiamen soon.
