Architectural Building
Visit Yongding Earth Building to learn why it represents harmony with nature. The dwellings made of a mixture of soil, eggs, and rice show the architectural mastery of the Hakka people, a colorful community of people who still live in the circular or rectangular buildings. Climb to the top floor to admire the scenery surrounding the buildings, which have been used as observation towers and forts since the 12th century. Get a taste for local life by trying tea, rice wine, and regional food. Yongding Earth Building is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Yongding County Edition.
