Private Day Tour Tianluokeng Tulou Cluster And Taxia Village From Xiamen

2 reviews
The countryside around Xiamen is known for its tulou clusters, ancient circular buildings built by rural Hakka Chinese communities centuries ago. Visit a few of these remarkable Chinese landmarks and immerse yourself in the life and rhythms of rural China, far from the crowded Xiamen city streets, on this day trip into the heart of Fujian Province. Visit the Tianluokeng tulou cluster and the impressive five-story Yuchanglou, and take a leisurely walk through the riverside village of Taxia.

Zhangzhou Tu Lou is a place that you should not miss. There are many ancient Tu Lou which you can admire the architecture. It really made you admire the ancient craftmanship and how it had benefits generation and generation of Chinese. Imagine the oldest is about 700 years old.

I was taken through this area by a supplier and we stopped at one of the less visited buildings. I was told this because the people dont charge for you to go in. The place was run down - partly because it is old - and partly because its neglected. Lots of old junk kept in corners, broken toys and dust covered cheap suitcases, as well as goats and rabbits and chickens and feral cats kept in the ground floor rooms. There was an amazing large stone mortise and when you looked in side there was an old cigarette packet and some other trash. The ground floor was for cooking and storage, the first floor for eating and meeting and the floors above for sleeping.

First time in TuLou and this is the first stop our local guide showed us. It's amazing that up to this day and age, there are still people living in this ancient clay structures. I noticed it's usually the older generations, some with their grandchildren. Life seems so simple to these people (sans the tourists). They sell their goods and wares in front of their doors.

This tulou seems to be the top tourist attraction. Busloads of travel groups visit and the noise is just too high. There are many alternatives as this building has been refurbished for tourists. Not recommended.
