We pride ourselves on the extensive knowledge and cultural understanding of our travel experts, who will accompany you on your tour. Every 2 weeks on Saturday and Sunday, one of our travel experts will be offering a free 1-hour presentation on a certain aspect of traveling in China.
In this presentation, we'll be traveling to the southeast of China in order to explore and admire some of the most enigmatic architectural works in the country. We'll be taking a closer look at two different types of ancient fortress known as the Tulou and the Diaolou.
The Tulou or "Earthen Structures" are a type of dwelling built by the Hakka and Hoklo people in the mountainous regions of southern Fujian. In essence, a Tulou is a large, enclosed structure that is typically circular or rectangular in shape and is used to house multiple families. They are usually between 2 to 5 storeys high and the largest Tulou can hold up to one hundred families!
By contrast, the Diaolou or "Clock Towers" are indigenous to Guangdong province and are concentrated in the county of Kaiping. These multi-storey watchtowers loom over the lush countryside of southeastern China and are known for their stunning intermingling of architectural styles. Thanks to foreign influence, they often incorporate features from Baroque, Roman, and Gothic architecture.
Step back into the past with us and discover how these ancient fortresses came to be an integral part of the landscape in southeastern China.
