The coastal city of XiaMen 厦门 and the Hakka community round houses – FuJian province

South east China.

XiaMen was one of the first four 'special economic zones' when China began economic liberalization in the early 1980s (just 30 years ago).

The traditional round houses of the Hakka ethnic minority, called TuLou (土楼), provided a measure of security and were like a small village inside.
