Hakka Houses, Yongding County
(4.6/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Listed as a World Heritage Site, Hakka Houses provide visitors with important insight into the lifestyle and history of the natives. Each of the nearly 50 houses, characteristic dwellings of the Hakka people, used to serve as residences for a clan of related families. Several floors high, the earthen houses accommodated up to 800 residents each, which made them self-contained little villages. While there, you can see living rooms, storage rooms, praying areas, and the lower levels that today serve as cafes and souvenir shops. A visit to Hakka Houses represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Yongding County itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

  • These houses-fortresses are very amazing. The oldest dates from the 12th century. The largest has nearly 400 rooms that can accommodate 600 people.

  • One of the most amazing and unique things I've seen anywhere. These houses are like living museums. An absolute must see. 
  • I went through the train station in YongDing, the bus station is 5 minutes away by taxi and you drop everywhere or you want (I went to GaoTou and TaXiaCun) for two or three euro, provided they pass the gatekeepers (taxi drivers) who keep jealously entry :) To do this, you must know to buy tickets and ask her in the language of the Middle hotel reservations. Under this condition, except from a few vénaux(encore eux) taxi drivers, all the people there will be eager to help you. Lost the bottom is perhaps one of the best travel idea that can be done in China. A little tip, the temptation is great to take certain premises in photo, but they almost all hate it, you just have to ask with a smirk to wipe at worst a discreet refusal. Certain building abandoned planting offer an experience preferred, or found baskets and agricultural devices abandoned, bathed in the smell of oats and old wood, to achieve, just need a bit of curiosity and politeness. Once there, especially not forget Wuyishan isn't far away, and you can spend two or three days.
