What people are saying:

I really enjoyed this place. It's a great place to explore, take in some history, and do photography. However, I was here with a Chinese Tour Group and so I was rushed. I wish I had more time here. So I strongly recommend NOT going with a Tour Group. That way you are not rushed and pressured to hurry and get the bus before it leaves.

    Fabulous structure

    Inside it is a bit overbuilt with newer construction, an the top tier is decorated with national flags. So it is not easy to see get immersion in the old times, but overall - an impressive building.

    nice structure

    Loved the structure, did not like the commericialism in the buildings now instead of any history of the people who built them and what their lives were like.

    這是很特別!但太吵了!很小狹窄,繁忙時間去不佳 !This is very special! But it's too noisy! Very small and narrow, bad hours go crazy

    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...

Additional Information

Introduction

The tulou at Yongding are located in Longyan, Fujian Province. These are fascinating mountain region residential buildings that have been called “the exotic flowers of ancient Chinese architecture.” Each Yongding tulou is built with its own unique style but in one of two general types, rectangular or round. Professor Ichiro Mogi of the Tokyo University of the Arts said that “Tulou appear like giant mushrooms poking up out of the ground or like UFOs that have fallen from the sky.” Even more interestingly, dozens of blood-related families live together within each tulou. Living clustered together as an extended family like this must certainly be lively and homely.
