The province has a wealth of history and natural beauty, ranging from stunning mountain ranges to ancient temples, and even has roots in the Silk Road. Many of the coastal towns tend to be very culturally diverse due to its popularity as a maritime trade route, although Mandarin is more widely spoken than any other language. You'll find some English spoken, or written, in the larger cities, but expect various dialects of Mandarin when traveling to rural areas.

The Fujian Province is one of the rainiest provinces in all of China, with most of the rainfall in March, April, June, and especially August due to typhoons. The best times to visit are in late spring and autumn, when temperatures and humidity are more mild.

A few of the most pristine residences are open to the public for a small admission fee, while other residences are privately owned and can only be accessed through permission by the owner.

Head to Longyan to explore the earth houses of the Hakka people, which are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
