Detail Itinerary

Day 1 Xiamen to Nanjing by car – Yunshuiyao Old Town, Tianluokeng Tulou

Guide will meet you at hotel lobby, and start our road journey for around 2.5 hours westwards from Xiamen to Nanjing, home of thousands of Tulou Buildings. Tulou is a typical rural dwelling featuring multi-storied houses built by Hakka people in southeast of China between 15th and 20th centuries. The structures are inward-looking, many in circular or square shape, with high walls and only one entrance. The exterior is quite plain, but the inner decorations are surprisingly elaborate and comfortable. The biggest building can house 1,300 people. This architect miracle is definite worth your efforts to discover.

We first visit the region of Yunshuiyao Village which is said to be one of the most beautiful villages, and the Tulou structures nearby including Hegui Tulou, the best decorated and preserved one; Huaiyuan Tulou, the highest in square shape, and built on marshland.

Then we move to Tianluokeng Tulou Cluster, it is one of the most magnificent and well-preserved Hakka Castles in the area. The four round and one rectangular structure beautiful settle on the mountain slope. There is a observation platform offering nice panoramic views.  

Stay overnight tonight at one of the buildings at Taxia village.

Day 3 Nanjing to Yongding to Xiamen by car - Tulous of Chuxi Hakkas and Tulou of Chengqi Hakkas

Before moving back to Xiamen, we will discover some more Hakka Tulou Architecutres in the neighboring town, Yongding. The structures in Yongding have longer history than those we visit in Nanjing. Our stop will be the Chengqi Tulou, King of the Hakkas Tulou, and Chuxi village with the most picturesque Tulou cluster. 

Enjoy a rest on vehicle for your ride back to Xiamen.

Tips: The nearest station to Yongding is Longyan, with only one hour ride away. Bullet trains connect Longyan conveniently with Shenzhen, Huangshan, Hangzhou and Shanghai etc. If your next destination will be any of the above mentioned cities, it is suggested to board at Longyan instead of going back to Xiamen to avoid long distance road journey.
