Day
Make your way to Xiamen by flight or high speed rail. Be met and greeted by your Easy Tour China guide, then transfer with a private vehicle to your hotel. For the rest of the day, you may explore the city on your own pace.

After breakfast, drive 3 hrs to Nanjing County. The first sport of today is the Tianluokeng Tulou Cluster, one of the biggest and best known tulou clusters in Fujian. It consists of a square earth building in the center, surrounded by four round earth buildings. These earth buildings have only one entrance, guarded by 4–5-inch-thick wooden doors re-enforced with an outer shell of iron plate. Then transfer to visit the Yuchang Earth Tower, a double-ring five-line structure built in the middle of the Yuan Dynasty (1308-1338) by five clans, the Liu, Luo, Zhang, Tang and Fan. There are 270 rooms in the 18 meter high building, and there are still 21 families living inside. It has a nickname as "zigzag building", because the vertical wooden post structure is not straight and perpendicular, but zigzags left and right (some even at 15 degree angle).

The last spot today is the Taxia Village, located in a valley in the west of Shuyang Town, Nanjing County. It was built in 1426 (Ming Dynasty). Taxia Village is considered to be the hometown of overseas Chinese and listed in the 15 Chinese Landscape Villages. It is also called Longeval village in Najing County. With its’ good environment and life style, the oldest person in Taxia is over 108-year-old. Then transfer back to Xiamen.
