Altar Educational Tour of Fujian Province

Backyard Travel, which specializes in Asian travel, has just introduced a new educational Fujian China tour titled Fortresses, Modern History & The Hakka Tour.

This is an ideal opportunity to travel to China and learn about the migration of the Han people to Yongding and the self-contained fortresses they built. These fortresses were traditional communal residences that often included hundreds of people.

Travelers will experience a unique opportunity to stay in one of these communal residences, also known as a tulou, to learn first-hand about the lifestyle and how the modern-day Han have adapted. Guests enjoy a traditional family dinner consisting of authentic regional delicacies. 

This tour covers a variety of tulous within Fujian Province, each with a unique history and story to tell. The tour offers much more than just sightseeing and photo ops. It’s a real chance to immerse yourself in the Chinese culture as you learn about its fascinating past.

    I’d LOVE to see inside of one of those fortresses! I can’t imagine living in a time like that. We’re all so used to having our own homes and separate lives.

    Sounds like a fantastic trip! I would love to go and a guided tour to be able to understand the history and culture and meet modern locals would be so educational too.
