Tour Highlights
Yongding Hongkeng Tulou Cluster
Hongkeng Tulou Cluster is located in Yongding in southwest Fujian. Embraced by rolling hills and winding rivers, it includes many Hakka earthen buildings from various dynasties, and some of them date back to late Song Dynasty (420 - 479). Hiding in terraced fields and forest-capped valleys, these buildings are the pearls of the oriental architectural history.

The Zhencheng Building is the top choice for a Fujian Tulou day tour. Constructed in 1912 from the structure of eight diagrams, it enjoys fame as the "Prince of Tulou". Among the numerous earthen buildings, it is the most brilliant one, with a large area of about 5,000 square meters (5,980 square yards). The Zhencheng Building consists of two circular houses - an outer four-floor building and an inner two-floor building, looking beautiful and elegant.

The Kuiju Building is a rectangular architecture with a structure similar to that of a splendid palace, looking like the Potala Palace in Tibet when seen from a distance. It is worth mentioning that the entire building perfectly integrates with mountains behind it.

The Rusheng Building is a ring-shape house with three floors. There is a small well in the middle of its courtyard, and the whole building is equipped with only one entrance.

The Fuyu Building is opposite the Rusheng Building, separated by a stream. It is a western-style architecture covering an area of around 7,000 square meters (8,372 square yards). All the houses and halls of the Fuyu Building are richly decorated. This building is regarded an outstanding representative of Hakka Tulou due to its complicated structure and impressive appearance.
