Amazing, picture perfect tulou cluster

This was one of the high lights of a recent trip to the tulou cluster area. Amazing view from higher up on the side of the mountain, then you can walk down into the cluster... read more

We first visited TuLou on the first day and stayed overnight in an inn, we then proceeded to travel to TianLuoKeng on our second day. I must say, it's more beautiful here (in TianLuoKeng), bigger proportions of the clay structures, and lesser tourist (based on our trip that day) compared to our first day. The scenery is great, you ll... More

Worth the elaborate journey from the modern complex that is the starting point to the shuttle buses that take you up to a vantage point from which you can view the UFO like configuration of four round and one square toulou built according to the Chinese five elements of metal, wood, water, fire and earth. take your photographs here as...

This is probably the most impressive tulou site in the Taxia area. As UNESCO heritage it attracts a lot of tourists. You have to pay to visit.

This was one of the high lights of a recent trip to the tulou cluster area. Amazing view from higher up on the side of the mountain, then you can walk down into the cluster itself. Inside there are people selling the normal tourist stuff but its still worth a look as people live here it gives you a real... More

The Tianluokeng Cluster is composed of the Four Dishes and One Soup, the Yuchang Building and the Taxia Village, all of which is included in the admission price of the ticket. Aside from taking postcard-perfect photos of the Four Dishes and One Soup, also go inside the Yuchang Building and see how the local residents live and share the same... More

This village has 5 tulous in total but it is a good base for exploring the area where you can find other villages with similar tulous. They look similar but each one has some particular feature. I suggest getting a guide or you will not know what you are looking at. You can even find a place to stay in... More

We were lucky to be the earliest tourist there, enjoyed the hospitality of the residents there, who made their money through sales of their wares and souvenirs. Good eye-opener to how the early Hakkas lived.

It's touristy and busy during the lunch time. But after 3 pm, most tourists leave here. There are 3 villages to visit in this scenic spot. Tianluokeng Village, Yuchang House(Xiaban Village) and Taxia Village. Tianluokeng is good when viewing from the viewing platform, a bird view. Yuchang House is a "leaning house" and the construction is really special. Taxia Viilage... More

Four dishes and a soup: that's what the Chinese call this tulou cluster, based on the tableau they form when viewed from the lookout above. It will tell you all you need to know about Tianloukeng that when we went there, there was bustle and conflict at the viewing platform between different tourists all wanting to get their magic shot...

I'd give this place a rating of 4 if it wasn't for all the stalls setup in and around the round houses. I haven't got anything against the locals trying to make money, but the stalls do ruin the atmosphere. Now that the bad is out of the way, the good can follow. The upper viewing deck does provide for... More
