worth the trip
Nov 2019
These buldings are rare, ancient but yet full of life. It's definitely worth the ride from Xiamen (3 hours drive). A true journey in the past...

culturally significant

silly when these historically interesting village houses were mistaken for rocket launchers. this village was big and one could easily spend hours to get a glimpse of it. since we visited yunahuiyao nearby, we just drove past it and went straight to the viewing platform for the classic photo shot. beautiful indeed and would have been equally great to go in.

Jul 2019 • Couples
Booked a tour via mafengwo (China travel app) of a one day tour to 田螺坑 and 云水谣 with 唯途旅行。price (RMB 248) was reasonable with sumptuous lunch and most importantly, patient and informative guide 蓝钟情 and driver 2831!there was about 5km of leisure walking for the trip and the scenery and the structures were amazing and beautiful. It was definitely a long day trip, picked up at hotel at 720am and were back at hotel around 9pm.

Zhangzhou Tianluokeng Village

On our way to Raja Ampat, Indonesia, we had a 12 hour layover at Xiamen, China. We scheduled an excursion to the Zhangzhou Tianluokeng Village using the Chinese transit visa option. The person we chose (Selina Chen) made all the difference.

Selina picked us up at the airport with a driver and headed out for the day. For next several hours, we saw the beautiful country side of China. Selina took care of everything from entrance fees to lunch, even arranged for a local guide who explained the historical aspect of the village. All we had to do was enjoy the attraction, take photographs and shop for souvenirs.

We were very impressed and cannot overstate the professionalism that Selina commanded. If you’re looking to find a guide, be it Zhangzhou Tianluokeng Village or the nearby Xiamen Island, we highly recommend Selina.

Historically quite interesting
May 2019 • Solo
The clusters are beautiful to look at and are historically rich. There are two view points before you walk down into the village proper. Not sure if it’s worth the drive from Xiamen though, which is where I came from. If you have time, then it’s ok, but if time is short, you can give this a miss.

Interesting sights
May 2019 • Couples
We bought a day trip on a private hire tour. The visit to the tulou was interesting and the first one we went to was the square one. The guide that brought us around was quite informed and was able to share quite a bit of history behind the tulou. There were 6 stops, each with a different shape and number of floors although conceptually the construct was the same - ground floor kitchen, second level storage, third and above living quarters. I must say it got a little boring after a few tulou. The last stop to the hilltop to see the cluster was a good photo opportunity though.

Hakka history
Dec 2018 • Friends
It’s a 3.5 hour bus ride from Xiamen. Then take the local village tour bus about 12km into this world heritage of historical Hakka house, known as Tulou or earthly building. As the village consists of 4 round buildings with a square building in the middle, it is appropriately call 4 dishes 1 soup. The one and only in the world. First you have the bird eye view from the top. Then you descend through the concrete stairs to enter into the center of one of the round buildings. Amazing architect when you consider how they managed to build it without any machinery hundred of years ago. The main purpose of the design is protection against invasion. When it comes to survival, you can achieve the impossible.

4 Dishes and 1 Soup - unique, rural and traditional dwellings of Hakka communities
Nov 2018 • Solo
Tianloukeng (means "snail pit") is a village that consists of many tulous, both round and rectangular. It is located about 7 km from Taxia. From Xiamen, it takes about 2.5 hours by car.

There are two nice viewpoints. From base, where you look up the cluster of tulous with terraced fields. From top, where you can see the famous view of "4 dishes and 1 soup" - 4 round tulous surrounding a square tulou. From the top viewpoint, a 200 m boardwalk connects to the village, where visitors can explore and see the locals going about their daily life. Tulous are real and authentic, not overly restored. Friendly locals.

We visited at about 8 am. Very few visitors. Beautiful and quiet rural landscape.

Nice views if you’re interested in tulous
Nov 2018 • Solo
To get to some of the tulous without chartering a car:
Take shuttle bus 6 from the Nanjing high speed train station (use the toilet here rather than at the bus station ;-) to the bus station in Nanjing town. From there you take a bus, also a bus nr 6 but a different one, to the tourist distribution centre. You will already drive past several tulous before you get there. From the distribution centre you have several options, a.o. A and B:

Route A (Tiánluókēng cluster, including some viewpoints, Yùchāng Lóu and Taxia village)
Taxia is on route A. On this route different tourist buses connect several sights, meaning you have to take out your luggage and carry it around the sights you are visiting because there is no place to leave it during your visit. For the viewpoints (Tianluokeng) that’s not such a problem, but it’s especially annoying at Yùchāng Lóu, that’s why I walked back there from Taxia later (3 km one way). If I would do this part again, I would leave my big bag at the tourist centre and just take a small backpack with me on the A route buses.
