Mine is a party of Mandarin-speaking OBCs. I suggest you hire a translator if you do not speak the Mandarin-dialect or the Hakka-dialect. We hired a guide at the "welcome center" for 60 RMB. It's 60 RMB per party not per person, Mandarin-speaking. She/the guide...More

I really enjoyed seeing the Houses in Longyan Region but was disappointed in the commercialism inside the houses now. I was hoping one would have some samples of the Hakka people but nothing was found in the area related to the people, just the houses.

The Hakka houses are fascinating examples of a very practical architectural model. Try to best to visit the smaller villages, where people simply live in the Hakka houses and haven't turned them into huge traveler attractions.

I visited Yongding Tulou starting from Xiamen. I spent 1 night staying inside HongKeng Cultural Village (洪坑村). The tulou clusters which I visited were Yongding HongKeng, Gaobei and ChuXiLou. I would recommend skipping ChuXiLou as the main tulou museum was under renovation. Overall, it was...More
