#1 of 10 in Things to do in Yongding County
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.

For everyone there is a place to return to and where I remember!
