Here, you will visit Hong Keng Village, famous for its Tulous, circular, square and rectangular houses. The round Hakka Tulous were built without nails, using mud bricks and wood. They were built according to a Chinese "Ba Gua" method of round on the outside, octagonal on the inside. After this visit, you will be driven back to your hotel in Xiamen. (Service End)

Attraction Description
Tulou or "earthen building", is a traditional communal residence in the Fujian province of Southern China, usually of a circular configuration surrounding a central shrine. These vernacular structures were occupied by clan groups. Although most tulou were of earthen construction, the definition "tulou" is a broadly descriptive label for a building type and does not indicate construction type. Some were constructed of cut granite or had substantial walls of fired brick. Most large-scale tulou seen today were built of a composite of earth, sand, and lime known as sanhetu rather than just earth.
