Ancient Houses of Erkan
Located on Siyu Island, Erkan is a small village with several well-preserved old residences built in the typical Fujian style. The village dates back over 300 years. Erkan Village No. 20 offers visitors a view of the traditional village lifestyle, with its display of antique furniture, appliances and artifacts. Different historic houses showcase herbal medicine, traditional village living, and folk songs. One of these houses has been turned into a museum for "praise song", Erkan's special music and literary heritage. These songs were written and passed down through generations by local people and deal with such themes as love, separation and the Erkan people's ability to survive and thrive in foreign lands. To experience the local flavor of the Erkan Village, you can stay in Erkan's only hostel, a traditional house furnished with modern amenities. There are also three temples in this small village.
