I hired a motorbike to bring me to ChengQiLou, which is a 10 mins ride from HongKeng Cultural Village (洪坑村). ChengQiLouu is considered King of Tulou, as it is the largest tulou. This tulou consists of the iconic 4 circular buildings. This place is very...More

Fantastic place to visit, interesting stories about the Hakka people and their way of life. We stayed at Fu Yu Tulou with Stephen, a very kind and hospitable man, and we felt truly welcome. Stephen organized everything for us at a great price

I always wanted to see these Hakka castles, so by chance when I was in the area for work, we took the 1.5 hour car trip from Longyan to Yongding. We came on a weekday so it was slow with a few tourists. We hired...More

This is really a pretty decent option for people wanting to get a quick look at a few different tulous. There is one modern tulou dating from 1962 with Western touches, there is an impressive square tulou with a cobbled central square and attractive timber...More

These earthen fortified houses of SW China are magnificent, unique structures. There are about 3000 such houses in the region, many of them still inhabited. They have been built since 1200s - the last ones quite recently. About 48 of them are recognised as World...More
