We took the night train from Shenzhen to Yongding on Nov 07. When we arrived, it was about 05:00am in the early morning. Luckily, it was not so cold. We eat the so called “Steamed Beef with Rice Flour”, but it was so insipid that I cannot eat up.
Coz the first train from Yongding to Xiayang County is starting from 06:20 am, so we waited about 1 hour at the bus station. The following is the bus schedule.
This is our bus tickets to Xiayang County, the destination of Chuxi Tulou.
When we arrived at the bus station of Xiayang County, we changed to another car to Chuxi Tulou Scenic Spots. At the gate, we bought the entrance tickets of Tulou.
This is the first photo I took when we arrive at Tulou. I really thought this is a so fantastic building when I stood in front of it.
We need to take this little “bridge” and then arrived at our “hotel”.
This is the Tulou we lived, quite impressive experience!
After left our luggage in the room, we were going on our Tulou journey.
This is the model of Chuxi Tulou, is it cute?
The first Tulou we met is Gengqing Lou. There are some people living here.
Jiqing Lou is the biggest and oldest Tulou in Chuxi Tulou.
There are many small rooms here and display the ancient tools, clothes and so on. We can learn much Hakka culture here.
It is said that there is white hair growing on this stone. So fantastic!
The second floor is the picture to introduce the history of different last name. My partner and I all found the picture of our last name and learned about its history.
The third floor is showing the Hakka culture by different pictures.
Actually, the third floor is a good place to watch the whole view of Jiqing Lou.
It was a quite nice day to have this tour, look! So blue sky in Tulou!
This is the Shengqing Lou.
This is our lunch, quite delicious, especially the rice! The boss of this restaurant also invited us to taste their rice wine.
After lunch, we proceeded to visit the next Tulou, Xiqing Lou. It is quadrate, quite unique among these rounded Tulous.
I really don’t know what it is, but the villager called rose. Do you think it is like rose?
This is Gongqing Lou.
This is Tulou which a family is living, so we didn’t enter and just took a photo far away.
This is a small primary school in Chuxi Village.
It is Fuqing Lou. Many villagers were chatting here.
This is Fanqing Lou, a quadrate Tulou.
We can saw Jiqing Lou from here.
We went another way and saw the small village here, the building here are not the same as Tulou, and these building must be established not too long ago.
After a short afternoon break, we are trying to explore the waterfall near the Tulou we living.
It is the waterfall we finding!
Then we went to the viewing deck in the mountain and have the full view of Chuxi Tulou. I am really shocked by the splendid view!
We watched the sunset from the viewing platform.
The next early morning, we proceed to take coach to Xiamen City. Unfinished, to be continued
