Information about the Hakka Round House from my friend Philomena Yong\
The Hakka people originally from Northern China, migrated in groups to settle in the south. They were looked upon by the southern locals as "guests families" (Hak=guest, Ka=family) a polite euphemism for intruders - hence Hakka built their homes like fortresses with thick walls and one main entrance as a protection against the hostile locals. Each round house is a multi-storeyed structure with many rooms and each room housing a whole family. The open space in the middle serves as a place for functions on special occasions and recreation. Each round house is a village in itself.
