This is beautiful! We also had a good time exploring this amazing place with Access China during our trip to Fujian, China.

We paid ticket to access the village. Usually one main door leads you to the open area in the center of an earthen tower. The first floor is kitchen (or for business use now); upstairs storage is residential area. Many families had their chats and gossips or tea drinking sessions in courtyard.

Although there are tourists around, the villagers’ life keep alive and interesting. We explore the village in and out, and greeted by some locals. Food is also interesting, mainly based on poultry, pork, rabbit, and local veggies, including tea leaves. And we highly recommend you explore the nearby Tulous or if time permit, a overnight stay would be great!

Very amazing architectures with different styles. Highly recommended is the Chuxi Tulou Cluster, less trodden. The Tulou King Chengqilou is quite stunning in visual effect, yet commercialized. Wish to visit again to other types of Tulou, the palace-style & five-phoenix style
