Your tour begins with a 9am pickup from your Xiamen hotel by private vehicle and an around 3.5-hour journey to Yongding. Along the way, admire the magnificent rural scenery of Fujian province and listen as your guide recounts the fascinating history of the Tulou villages. Learn about the unique Tulou – more than 46 multi-story earthen houses or ‘castles’ that date back to the 15th-century and were built by the Hakka people.
Admire the UNESCO-listed wonders for yourself as you arrive at the Hongkeng Tulou Folk Cultural Village, home to some of the region’s largest and best-preserved Tulou. Accompanied by your private guide, explore the Zhenchenglou, Rushenglou, and Kuijulou Tulou clusters; stroll around the ancient villages; and learn more about Hakka life and culture as you meet with the local residents.
On return to Xiamen, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
