Part of the past which is still in use today
Sep 2019
The Hua'an Tulou feature 2 round, the usual shape, and 1 square, more unique shape Tulou used by the Hun people of the Fujian province. Two of the Tulou are still residences today; building spanned the 12 through 20th centuries.
The drive there takes you through beautiful agricultural mountainsides. The produce provided by this rich agricultural area is for sale by the locals in the tulou but the sellers are not aggressive. Tea is a major crop.
One does have to watch your step as the grounds are in their natural state and tripping is possible if careless. Our tour only allowed access to the ground / courtyard level which is still used for cooking, not the storage level on the second floor or the bedrooms on the third level.
This location is a destination for many bus tours which seem to mostly be domestic travel and as it is a large site does not feel crowded.
If interested ancient Chinese culture, I recommend the effort to get here - about a 3 hour drive from Xiamen.

Part of Nanyang Lou
Jun 2016 • Family
Situated in Dadi Village, Xiandu Town, Hua'an County, 147 km away from Xiamen, the Dadi Tulou cluster consist of two major historical sites, Eryi Lou and Nanyang Lou. Nanyang Lou was built 47 years later than Eryi Lou and used the former for its blueprint. Part of the building has been converted into Hua'an Tulou Museum. Exhibits includes old farm implements and tools, its original furniture, artifacts and old stationary. Wooden doors and stone kerbs had intricate carvings with kitchen chimneys peeping out through roof tiles. We walked through farmlands with maize, beans, and vegetables. Most of the inhabitants were busy trying to sell us mushrooms, tea and other dry products like dates and gingko. An interesting visit.

The 3 tulou in Hua'an Dadi
May 2012 • Friends
This tulou cluster has 3 tulou - 2 round ones and a small squarish one. The bigger round one was impressive because of its size. However, it was already quite commercialized with shops selling antiques, tea and knick knacks for tourists. The wells in the circular courtyard were shaped like old Chinese coins in plan to symbolize and bring in wealth.The smaller round one is a short walk away through tea and vegetable farms and has been made into a museum displaying the art and history of the tulou. The small square one next to it is of 2 storeys and looked like it is still a home to many locals with laundry being hung out to dry and household utensils around. Lots of photo opportunities and one can easily spend some time here. Was in Dadi only for a brief visit during my group tour of Fujian, on the way up to Wuyishan from Xiamen. We drove on to spend the night in Yong'An. Highly recommended for those who have yet to see a tulou dwelling and for a sampling of rural life and scenery.
