This journey, let’s explore the new member of the World Heritage sites-Hakka Earthen building stay overnight in one of the Earthen buildings to deeply experience local Hakka’s life.
 

Fujian province is one of the most historic area in mainland China, which has plenty of cultural heritage leaving behind by our ancestor. The journey starts from Xiamen, beautiful seaport city with GulangyuIsland; then dirve into the villages in the mountains south and west of Fujian for the magical Chinese Architecture Tu Lou, the earthen buildings of Hakkas.

 

As most Hakka resided in mountains, communal houses made of compacted earth were built to provide protection against bandits and wild animals. Tulou is a well-protected fortress in storey shape for the self-defense of Hakka people against enemies. In addition to the queer tricks of defense against the enemies, it has the functions of quakeproof, fire prevention, guarding against wild animals and good ventilation & lighting.   The fantastic and spectacular Fujian Hakka Tulou demonstrates the great creativity of the working people of ancient China.

Mt. Wuyi

Mount Wuyi is the most outstanding area for biodiversity conservation in south-east China and a refuge for a large number of ancient, relict species, many of them endemic to China. The serene beauty of the dramatic gorges of the Nine Bend River, with its numerous temples and monasteries, many now in ruins, provided the setting for the development and spread of neo-Confucianism, which has been influential in the cultures of East Asia since the 11th century. In the 1st century B.C. a large administrative capital was built at nearby Chengcun by the Han dynasty rulers. Its massive walls enclose an archaeological site of great significance.

 

Quanzhou City

Quanzhou was once a great port city and an instrumental stop on the maritime silk route. Maro Polo, back in the 13th century, called it Zaiton and informed his readers that ‘…it is one of the two ports in the world with the biggest flow of merchandise’. It’s slipped a few pegs since then, but Quanzhou still has afew products of note, including the creamy-white dehua porcelain figures, and locally crafted puppets. Quanzhou’s prime attraction is Kaiyuan Temple, offering a relaxing retreat

Dehua is rich in kaolin and famous for ceramic products, especially crafts and dinnerware, including candle holders, Piggy banks, photo frames, jewel boxes, flower baskets, jars, vases, plaques, wall plaques, garden decorations, figurines, statues; animals, birds, pets and many other items.
