    Houses in town

    Favorite thing: The surprising thing is the houses of each middle income family can be build 4 to 6 storey high. The wall surrounding the house is build to the edge of the house area, leaving only very narrow roads for one car to pass. I'm very amazed by the skillfulness of the drivers to navigate through the narrow roads.

    UFO ??

    Favorite thing: More curious, however, were the many round, open-topped objects rising high in the fields. On closer inspection we found that they were earthen buildings typical to this region, and have been inhabited by generation after generation of Hakka people.

    Hakka Village > The Earthen Dwellings of Yongding

    Favorite thing: Leaving Ninghua, we drove past Qingliu, Liancheng and Shanghang. In these places, people all talk in the Hakka dialect, albeit with slight differences from place to place - a far cry from the local Fujian dialect.
