4 DAYS CLASSIC FUJIAN

Experience the hospitality of Fujian's Hakka people and their unique tulou dwellings, mighty fortifications of earth and stone that house up to 80 families. You'll also savour the sea air of Xiamen, China's loveliest coastal city, and hop over to the colonial-era isle of Gulangyu.

ITINERARY DAY-TO-DAY

1

DAY

XIAMEN / GULANGYU

Take a ferry to Gulangyu Island. Once a foreign concession, this car-free island retains its cross-cultural architecture and ambiance of its colonial past. Explore the area on foot, wandering through island's winding network of trails.

2

DAY

XIAMEN / YONGDING

Drive to Yongding populated almost exclusively by China's Hakka people, literally translated as 'guest families'. Renowned for their distinctive tulou dwellings, these circular fortress-like structures offers protection from both bandits and wild animals. Explore Tianluokeng Tulou Cluster, a gathering of four round buildings and Chengqi House, also known as the 'king of tulou' built in 1709.

3

DAY

YONGDING

Nestled amid rolling hills alongside a lazily flowing river, the Chuxi Tulou Cluster is a pastoral gathering of golden, earthen homes named with the word qing, meaning celebration reflecting the hospitable nature of the Hakka people. Head to the Nanxi Tulou Cluster positioned like a Tulou Great Wall that stretches for several kilometers, designed to imitate a dragon's head and body.

4

DAY

YONDING / XIAMEN

Drive to Xiamen. Explore the food and shopping street of Zhongshan Road where the old European-style buildings lend a special touch to this pedestrian street.
