Hongkong's Mainland Scenery Series No. 9: Fujian Tulou

Hongkong Post issues the Mainland Scenery Series No. 9 featuring the Fujian Tulou on March 18, 2010.

Cylindrical in shape, the Fujian tulou were built in old method construction forming a very unique large housing district in the mountains.

In 2008, they were included in UNESCO's World Heritage List for their long-standing cultural tradition as well as their exceptional size and distinct design.
