Nowadays there are 68 earth buildings remaining in Hua’an. Though small in number, Hua’an Earth Buildings reflect distinctive local characteristics and are of great historic, artistic and scientific value. Therefore they are a special and vital part of Fujian Hakka Earth Building. Totally different from the Yongding Hakka Earth Building in layout, Hua’an Earth Buildings were the fruit of the culture of local residents, and are in a class of their own.Compared to other scenic spots, the Hua’an Earth Buildings are less known to the public, therefore, the visitors there are comparatively fewer, meaning you can have ample time to enjoy this fairly quiet place and get to know the history and related culture of Hua’an Earth Buildings.Throughout it all, a private transfer will be readily available to serve you a safe journey ahead! Have the freedom to choose different vehicles to suit your traveling party.
