  • 這是很特別!但太吵了!很小狹窄,繁忙時間去不佳 !有點商業化了,不斷有人向你來叫賣拍照雖然是善意。如果你是從B線行的,你會覺得它是大但沒有了傳統味!可能B缐有多些時間內面奇怪的形狀!但是我想說土樓真是人生中其中一個值得去見識的地方! This is very special! But it's too noisy! Very small and narrow, bad hours go crazy...  more »
  • The exterior has an ancient miracle, but the inner part is very broken, and there is a worker who leads the lecture and feels that there is a limited ability to protect the department. You will only think that Chinese people do not know how to protect cultural relics.

  • This town is very lovely. When we go there are not many visitors, very quiet. We had a night in the house of Fuk Yu. This is a hundred-year-old old fashioned floor (square) that has been transformed into a hotel. The hotel's micro-letter is: Fuyulou. They also arranged for people to pick us up from building, drive to see the different scenes, and come here. People here are very enthusiastic. Compared with other famous soil-floor towns, there are fewer tourists and fewer souvenirs, so it is a more comfortable environment and does not feel so commercial. There is a family in this town who specialize in rice wine. Their rice wine is very good to drink, we went in and they also explain to us the process of making rice wine. Very much!!
