Create an itinerary including Tulou de Fujian
Visit unique earthen constructions at Tulou de Fujian, a World Heritage Site displaying architecture found only in the mountainous areas of Fujian and Guangdong. A "toulu" represents a large, enclosed, and fortified earthen building, usually square or circular, with thick walls and the capacity to house around 80 people. Take a walk around the site and see how people still live in the distinctive buildings today. Climb to the top of the hill and enjoy views of the three round, one square, and one unique oval toulu, called “four dishes with a soup” in Chinese. Put Tulou de Fujian and other Nanjing County attractions into our Nanjing County road trip planning website, and watch your holiday take shape.
