We had a recent visit to Nanjing County and stayed in this excellent Tulou. Mr Zhang and his family were quite superb in arranging all our transportation and transfers. The Tulou itself is comfortable with smallish rooms, some en-suite. Excellent local Hakka food prepared by Mrs Zhang and her family. Their home-made yellow wine is wonderful and must be sampled. Do ensure that you have a room in the Tulou building, preferably with an ensuite. These include western-style toilets. Transfers currently cost Y400 one way from Xiamen (they will meet your flight) and take around 2 hours. Hiring a car and driver is Y600 for at least 3 hours. These may be pricey but are well worth the expenditure. Overall this is a unique and quite outstanding opportunity to stay in a genuine Tulou with a warm family and to obtain significant insight into both these amazing buildings and the local culture. Some spoken Mandarin is undoubtedly beneficial. My son translated for me both at the Tulou and on our itinerary of visits. He helped other Europeans at the Tulou with translation so even if you don't speak Mandarin it is likely that there will be someone to help. Do ensure that you contact Mr Zhang e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange transfers. I cannot recommend this more highly and pay tribute to Issyo (previous reviewer) who kindly provided advice.
