The tulou is very nice, the scenic area is quite big, and the consumption inside is not too expensive. Commercialization is affirmative. The folkway is fairly simple, it seems that it is still undergoing renovation, the roads are not very good, and the supporting facilities need to be improved.
Jiang Ji/Travel Notes of Clouds and Water Ballads are on the far side of the sea, my vow that I never uttered. ——Zhang Kehui The Yunshuiyao that people now speak of is located in Nanjing Changjiao, Zhangzhou, Fujian Province. This is the standard place name. Because of the influence of a movie, it opened the development process of a scenic spot and gradually became a well-known tourist destination. This movie is based on Mr. Zhang Kehui's novel "Looking for", and the hometown of the protagonist of the movie Chen Qiushui was taken from the beautiful Nanjing Changjiao. A small stream flows through this ancient town. The 13 old banyan trees on the shore are still lush and green. They are regarded as "tree gods" by the local villagers. The tree at the core of the bridge has a history of six to seven hundred years. Known as the first banyan tree in southern Fujian, the huge tree canopy is like a sunshade umbrella across the side branches of the stream to cover the small bridge. There are bamboo chairs and benches under the tree. There will be old people playing chess or singing there, and there are also people passing by. Visitors buy a bowl of beef noodles from the old farmhouse to sit and eat, and occasionally one or two cooked dogs will play around the rest. An ancient cobblestone road that has been stepped on to shine, twists and turns into the distance. It is said that this was the only way from Changting Mansion to Zhangzhou Mansion in ancient times. The stream is also paved like a string of stone piers and piano keys, and many people take pictures on it. There is also a large waterwheel, which is said to be a scene made during the filming. Although it does not see any practical use, it also adds a bit of literary and artistic flavor. Of course, the most attractive part of the ancient town is the earthen buildings. They are scattered at the foot of the mountain, beside the stream, and on the fields. Among them, there are Hegui Buildings built on the marshland and called "the most strange in the world", there are well-protected double-ring round earth buildings-Huaiyuan Building, and there are more than 50 stilt buildings, bamboo pole buildings, and mansion-style earth buildings. Visiting these tulou is very casual. If you can stay for a long time during off-peak hours, the ground floor of the tulou is a normal place to visit. The courtyard is a home for a week. Some have stalls selling hand-rolled cigarettes, and some sell some local ones. Traditional snacks are not expensive, and of course they are not very good. The second floor and above are the residences of residents, so you can't visit them at will. Of course, if you pay five yuan to the uncle who is stationed at the entrance of the stairs leading upstairs, they are very welcome to go up and have a look. When I go upstairs, I can see a different taste, especially the living scenes of the yard with a bird's eye view are full of real fireworks. The second time I passed by, it coincided with the early morning of the previous day. An old man was writing couplets in the yard. The gold letters on the red background were quite eye-catching and joyful. I had to sigh that there are also educated people in such a country. As the name suggests, the tulou is a civil structure. The people living in a tulou are basically relatives of a large family. I met a middle-aged woman who claimed to be the king of the building selling groceries. She introduced that the room behind her was the landlord’s house. If you look carefully, it is indeed wider than the neighboring house. It is good feng shui to face north and south. As far as the living environment is concerned, it is not good, even if the ventilation and lighting are taken into account, there is no toilet. This is an embarrassing place in modern life, so I did not see young people when I went from house to house. But all this does not affect the magnificence of the Tulou and the working people
Traveling to Fujian, this stop came to Nanjing, Zhangzhou, to the Yunshuiyao Scenic Area. Yunshuiyao, formerly known as Changjiao, is a scenic spot in the world cultural heritage "Fujian Tulou". The 2005 movie "Yunshuiyao" was filmed here. After the successful application of Fujian Tulou, the government officially named an ancient road paved with pebbles over 10 kilometers in the village as "Yunshuiyao Ancient Plank Road", and the name of the ancient town was therefore renamed "Yunshuiyao Ancient Town." The scenic spots of Nanjing Yunshuiyao Scenic Area include the World Cultural Heritage Hegui Tower and Huaiyuan Tower, the largest and most concentrated thousand-year-old banyan tree group in the province, a century-old street, and a thousand-year-old road. On the bank of the stream, the group of banyan trees composed of 13 century-old and thousand-year-old banyan trees is spectacular. One of the old banyan trees covers an area of 1933 square meters with a tree length of more than 30 meters. The bottom of the trunk needs more than 10 talents to be able to hug , Is currently the largest banyan tree in Fujian Province. An ancient cobblestone road under the banyan tree was trampled so smoothly that it stretched into the distance. It used to be the only way from Changting Mansion (Longyan City) to Zhangzhou Mansion (Zhangzhou City). Next to the ancient road, there is a row of two-story old-fashioned brick-wood structure houses. It is an old market with a history of hundreds of years. Most of the shops still retain the characteristics of wooden walls. The most striking thing in the ancient town of Yunshuiyao is the earthen buildings at the foot of the mountain, beside the river bank, and on the fields. These are all earthen buildings built since the middle of the Yuan Dynasty. There are 53 well-preserved ones, including those called "Tianxia". The most unique "Hegui Building", as well as the most exquisitely crafted and well-protected double-ring round earth building-Huaiyuan Building, there are also Diaojiao Building, Zhugan Building, Fudi-style Tulou and so on.
It’s very interesting to see the Tulou for the first time. It’s spectacular~ You can walk around the Yunshui Ballad in three or four hours. I am idle so I live in the scenic spot for one night. It’s best to travel by car or go with a group to watch the Yunshui Ballad and Tianluokeng in one day Better
The scenery of Yunshuiyao Scenic Area is very beautiful, if I have the opportunity, I would like to go again. The scenic spot is the filming location of the movie of the same name, and some film and television dramas have also been filmed here. The water is green and clear, and the big banyan tree is very strong and lush, like a paradise.
