Your Host and The Team


“My goal, my view, is that alongside ordinary life, people should seek, find and enjoy opportunities to explore and find themselves, and to find inner peace. My goal at the Tsingpu Tulou Retreat was to create a place, a site, for people to feel the beauty of poetry, to find their inner heart, and explore their artistic spirit. Xiangchou is a Chinese concept that refers to nostalgia for rural living and in this age of rapid technological development, it's becoming quite a movement, particularly in hospitality. These concepts come from a renowned poet, Xin Qiji. He composed a very famous poem, which goes “When I see the mountain, I can feel the beauty and the peace of the mountain. Meanwhile the mountain can feel my heart.”
