Tulou, the unique residential architecture of Fujian, was inscribed on the UNESCO's World Heritage List during the 32nd session of the World Heritage Committee. A Tulou building usually consists of rammed earth outer wall and internal wooden framework. It reflects Chinese traditional architectural designs, the Fengshui practices and the concept of unification between man and nature.
There are so many different Tulous in Fujian, and we only got the chance to visit the most famous one ---- the King of Tulou. After three hours driving, we arrived at Yongding Tulou group, among which, stands the King of Tulou ---- Chengqi Tulou. It's a four-layered building, very magnificant looking. Once, there were almost over 600 people living in it. Although the building is quite simply equipped, but what a pleasure to live with such a crowd of people!
