Have a Chinese lunch in the village.

Visit the earth buildings.

Later, continue visit the “rickety building”-Yuchang Building. It was built in the late Yuan Dynasty and the early Ming Dynasty (around 1368) and is the oldest and largest round building known so far. The biggest feature of the Yuchang Building is the column's inversion, with a maximum inclination of 15°. It looks like it is teetering. However, it has undergone seven hundred years of erosion and numerous earthquakes. It has still remained the same as ever and has become a living specimen of ancient residential buildings.

Stroll in Taxia Village along the tranquil river. Known as “Zhouzhuang Watertown in south of Fujian”, this village has a long history of over 700 years. It has more than 300 households currently. Taxia Village is a typical Chinese Hakka village and also home to many overseas Chinese. Take a look at the ancestral hall, De Yuan Hall where the local hakka people worship their ancestors.

After the tour, transfer back to Xiamen. You may rest on the vehicle during the three hour drive.
