    150 kms from Xiamen, China, old buildings, Walled Villages, built during the Song (900 to 1250 years) dynasty or lived the Hakka people. These are the Tulou that may be round or square depending on the period. These are extraordinary round constructions multi-story cool in summer and warm in winter with a joint Center for the exchange between families. See as very old and very original. The walls are made of clay, and ground into sand and grey tile coverage with bamboo serving as reinforcements of the most famous and most beautiful walls is Chengqi Building with 5 rows of houses and a height of more than 15 meter high. Impressive

    From the observation deck Saturday moments looking down the whole building, tourists are uniformly cooing of admiration. It is so great. Place 3 hours by car from Xiamen and is inconvenient, but are worth a visit. However, soil is building in some tourist destinations and the souvenir shops, restaurants and hotels are on the upper floors and people can't see.
