Hakka Heritage

Dear Friends of China:

We will be showing History Channel's recently announced Hakka Tulou video for the first time in 2011, in the near future. This is the launch of their History for Tomorrow series.

 If you wish to attend, please contact me by email. Details can be sent to all those sincere and keen enough to want to see and learn about historic China, rammed earth construction, green buildings, (your own) Hakka culture and architecture, their fortified Tulous, sustainable communities, conserver lifestyle, and China's 38th UNESCO World Heritage Site, and plans for a Hakka BioSphere joining 3 provinces, Guangdong, Fujian and Jiangxi.

If you are planning a trip to China, this is one of many interesting historic sites well worth 3-7 days of your time, to live, experience and explore, the real and rich world of the Hakka people.

 46 buildings that comprise the UNESCO World Heritage Site are part of a dynamic and living museum, one that still breathes with the sounds of children on their way to school, local rivers as they flow out of the watershed, and people in their everyday way of life, in  genuine Hakka surrounding, home and courtyards.
