Thoroughly enjoyed the visit into the earthern castle, as other than marveling the unusual architecture, we also spend time buying local produce from the local farmers selling ginger, ribena flowers, persimmons, pomelo, local tea, etc. You could also get glimpses of the local way of life, which is probably unchanged for centuries, when you spend time walking through the village...

Finally I've made it to this UNESCO World heritage site of Tulou in Yong Ding, China. We drove there from Meizhou, which took approx. 2 hours. A very clever and practical design and construction to house and protect the Hakka clans. We visited the King of Tulou and spent 3 hours walking from one to the next Tulou to learn... More

After a 3.5 hour drive from Xiamen, we were not disappointed. Very few tourists about and it felt like we were the only ones there. The combination of remarkable circular structures scattered throughout the countryside and the delightful scenery, added a whole new dimension to our understanding and enjoyment of China. The realisation that the Hakka people still live there... More

A worthwhile trip from Xiamen, nice to leave the city and to get into the rural and semi rural areas. We had a private guide and driver. Expressway for about an hour or so, then a highway, then single lane through the mountains. Lots of small villages in valleys, mountains between villages. it took about 3 hours getting there and...

The prince of Hakka Houses, the smallest Hakka House of Yongding County, Five Phoenix House are all here in this village. Unfortunately, as the first hakka village to open to the tourists, it's the most touristy village. Chuxi Village, Nanxi Village, Hekeng Village are better in this aspect. Feel free to ask me more questions about Hakka Houses, I have... More

I was 'home' on a village trip to visit what remains from the bloodline of my forefathers and it brought me to this village of Yong Ding. Yong Ding is a village where Hakkas live (we're normal chinese who speak Hakka). The famous Hakka Village that i visited was simply breathtaking. Its made of earth and most of the buildings... More
