On a recent business trip to Zhangzhou, my friend from China took me to the Fujian Tianlou Tulou buildings. It was fascinating and a wonderful experience. My business partner was friends with some of the residents of one of the buildings and we had tea and a meal of steamed bamboo, pork, rice and vegetables prepared by the grandmother of... More

I rented a car and driver to take me from Xiamen to Tianluo Tulou. It takes 2.5 hours to get to the visitor centre. There are three main sites that are interconnected by a mini bus system that starts at the centre. Each site merits 30-60 mins. People live (and sell stuff) in each circle which is interesting. All in... More

Rather hard to reach without a driver guide but worth the visit to see these centuries old Unesco sites. Built round or square, these hakka houses are homes to hakka familes of the same family name. Extended families all live together in the past but due to the lack of privacy, many younger folks have moved to the cities to... More

The buildings had been declared world heritage in 2005. The natives built these building to house their families and to protect them from the thieves and bandits from the mountains. Back in the days, one building will house one family including all of their relatives. The scenery here is a must visit for people who loves the mountains and the... More

This tulou cluster was less busy than I expected knowing it's very famous and I had an enjoyable experience here. The highlight, I think, is the view from the top of the hill, where you can see all the different shaped tulou nestled in the dramatic terraced hills, so be sure to have your driver take you there. Also walking... More

This is my first time visiting Fujian and we went for the World Heritage Fujian Tulou. The Tulou architecture is quite impressive and beautiful, is really worth to go and have a look. It takes us around 1 hour by cab to travel from Long yan city centre to Fujian Tulou. The entrance fee is around RMB90 and the tour... More

As what the local name it, this location comprises of three round Tulou, one oval tulou and one square tulou. There's one unique one, which is oval. There's not much difference from other tulou, these few are quieter and less tourists. There's a birds eye view from afar, which should be visited. However, entrance fees applies. There are also many... More

I recommend you come here if it is not to much effort. But, beware that this place is incredibly popular with Chinese tourists. I got the strong impression that there is no restriction on the number of visitors allow in at one time as the Chinese tour buses kept pulling up. Including myself I only saw two non Chinese tourists.... More
