This tulou cluster has 3 tulou - 2 round ones and a small squarish one. The bigger round one was impressive because of its size. However, it was already quite commercialized with shops selling antiques, tea and knick knacks for tourists. The wells in the circular courtyard were shaped like old Chinese coins in plan to symbolize and bring in wealth.The smaller round one is a short walk away through tea and vegetable farms and has been made into a museum displaying the art and history of the tulou. The small square one next to it is of 2 storeys and looked like it is still a home to many locals with laundry being hung out to dry and household utensils around. Lots of photo opportunities and one can easily spend some time here. Was in Dadi only for a brief visit during my group tour of Fujian, on the way up to Wuyishan from Xiamen. We drove on to spend the night in Yong'An. Highly recommended for those who have yet to see a tulou dwelling and for a sampling of rural life and scenery.
