Chuxi tulou cluster
Chuxi tulou (初溪土樓)
The Chuxi tulou are 15th century Ming-era tulou, including one building that is four stories tall, no small feat for a building made of mud. These enclosed homes, which are made of rammed earth, stone, wood and other miscellaneous materials (some even have rice in the walls!), house members of the Hakka minority. Like many of the tulou in the region, it represents a remnent of an older time, when communal living was more common and warring tribes were a more regular occurance.
8:00 a.m. Xiamen downtown hotel pickup and drive to Yongding County (about 3 hours)
En route to see these fascinating homesteads take a break in a picturesque tea field and visit a teahouse to witness a Chinese tea ceremony and enjoy a cup of the local chá. Tea has a 1,600-year-long history in Fujian Province and the techniques for brewing the five different types of tea grown in the region—oolong, black tea, green tea, white tea, and scented tea—all originated here, with the exception of green tea.
