Itinerary

Your private guide will be holding IslamiChina Travel pick-up sign and waiting for you in your hotel lobby (or other appointed meeting place) at the appointed time. You will be transferred to Nanjing Tianluokeng Tulou Cluster by a comfortable air-conditioned private vehicle (3 hours)

Explore Tianluokeng Tulou cluster
Tianluokeng is home to a cluster of five tulous, four circular Tulou arranged around a square tulou, creating an architectural harmony that blends in with the surrounding landscape. Its unusual appearance has earned it the name “four dishes and one soup”, as it resembles the layout for an average family dinner in China. The square tulou in the centre is known as “Buyun Building” or “Reaching the Clouds Building” and is the oldest of the cluster, having been built in 1796. It is three storeys high, each storey has 26 rooms, four sets of stairs, and a go around corridor in front of the rooms at each level. The Buyun building was burnt down by bandits in 1936, rebuilt in 1953 according to the original plan. The Hechang Building was built not long thereafter. It is a three-storey-high round earth building. The circular three-storey-high Zhenyang Building followed was built in 1930. In 1936 Ruiyun Building was constructed and the last of the cluster, Wenchang Building, was completed in 1966. Despite being a large tourist attraction, these five Tulous still retain an incredibly rustic feel. You’ll commonly see locals drying tea, rice and vegetables and curing meats in the sun.

Discover Yuchang Building
Surrounded by a tiny village and rice paddies, Yuchang Building is one of the oldest known Tulou in China. It was constructed in 1308 during the Yuan dynasty by the Liu family clan and remains remarkably preserved from that date. At five-stories high, Yuchang Building is also one of the tallest Tulou in China. Yuchang Building has been nicknamed the “zigzag building”, because the vertical wooden post structure is not straight and perpendicular, but zigzags left and right. It was built that way due to an error measuring the building materials. The outer ring of Yuchang Building is 36 meters in diameter and boasts five storeys, with 50 rooms on each floor, 270 in total. Each of the 25 kitchens on the ground floor at the back half of the circle has a private water well beside its stove. This is the only tulou in all Fujian with such convenient water supply.

Wander through Taxia Village
The ancient Hakka village of Taxia, tucked away in the lush green mountains, is one of the oldest and most spectacular villages in China. The village is split by a river, which flows through the heart of the village and is lined by over 20 traditional Tulou. The village was established in 1426 by the Zhang family but most of the remaining buildings were constructed during the 18th century, with the oldest, Fuxing Building, having been built in 1631. Stilted wooden houses are also littered along the riverbanks of Taxia and add to the idyllic pastoral scenery. The village’s main attraction is the Zhang Family’s Ancestral Hall, which is located near a pond and flanked by 20 stone flagpoles. This shrine to the Zhang’s ancestors was built over 400 years ago and is one of the most well-preserved of its kind in China. There are more than 300 households currently living at Taxia Village.
