In Part Two of our tulou adventure, visit the Gaobei cluster – home to the most famous earthen building of them all. The “King of Tulou” is a massive structure with nearly 400 rooms that once housed up to 800 people. While this is by far the most touristy section of the tulou, it’s worth a visit to take in this impressive structure and its surroundings.
