I hired a motorbike to bring me to ChengQiLou, which is a 10 mins ride from HongKeng Cultural Village (洪坑村). ChengQiLouu is considered King of Tulou, as it is the largest tulou. This tulou consists of the iconic 4 circular buildings. This place is very...More

Fantastic place to visit, interesting stories about the Hakka people and their way of life. We stayed at Fu Yu Tulou with Stephen, a very kind and hospitable man, and we felt truly welcome. Stephen organized everything for us at a great price

We visited Gaobei around lunch time on a Saturday and unfortunately it coincided with busloads of tourists visiting at the same time... After some waiting time though we managed to get a look around the king of tulous without too many people around. I think...More

I always wanted to see these Hakka castles, so by chance when I was in the area for work, we took the 1.5 hour car trip from Longyan to Yongding. We came on a weekday so it was slow with a few tourists. We hired...More

This is really a pretty decent option for people wanting to get a quick look at a few different tulous. There is one modern tulou dating from 1962 with Western touches, there is an impressive square tulou with a cobbled central square and attractive timber...More
