這是很特別!但太吵了!很小狹窄,繁忙時間去不佳 !有點商業化了,不斷有人向你來叫賣拍照雖然是善意。如果你是從B線行的,你會覺得它是大但沒有了傳統味!可能B缐有多些時間內面奇怪的形狀!但是我想說土樓真是人生中其中一個值得去見識的地方! This is very special! But it's too noisy! Very small and narrow, bad hours go crazy ! It's a little commercial, and people are coming to sell you pictures, though they are kind. If you are from line B, you will feel it...More

I didn’t want to join a 1 day Chinese group tour from Xiamen. Such tours are typically rushed, with wasted time on shopping, lunch and end up seeing minimal places hurriedly. Being solo, it is not cost effective to hire a private car and guide....More

Very interesting place to visit, good to walk around the building and see the different areas. The building looks great from the outside in the round architecture and has nice decoration in the inside. Plenty of history

Have been to many parts of China, but this trip to Yongding Tulou country is quite an awesome and inspiring experience. That the hakka people, out of necessity and grits, could construct these buildings practically in the middle of nowhere, is truly remarkable. Heng kong,...More

If you are not familiar or non Chinese speaking it is best to get a local guide so you can have a better understanding of the Hakka culture. Had not seen young locals around and majority of those we met were above 60s. They were...More
