While most tuluos (earthen buildings) built by the early Hakka are round, with usual walls and supports, Yu Chang Luo is well known for its zig zag support where a left slant is supported by a right slants. It’s pretty to take picture and sample...More

Yuchang Lou is one of the many rounded Tulou ("earthern building") in Fujian. These are traditional rural dwellings of the Hakka communities. While there are many tulous to visit, this one is especially worth visiting for two good reasons. It retains enough of its original...More

If you are in the region to see Tulous, then this is the only one worth seeing. It has a 700 year old history and it is fascinating to see the structure still standing. The folks living there still draw fresh mountain water for their...More

The craftsmanship from the past is amazing. I cannot believe that these buildings still stand so strong, and are still lived in today.
