If you're at all interested in architecture, Shanhou Folk Culture Village is a must!

It has the most complete range of traditional Minnan-style houses, built between 1876 and 1900. Also from that time, there's a school building and the Wang clan ancestral shrine.
Shanhou Folk and Culture Village
The 3 symmetrical rows of houses built into the hillside all face the sea. Take time to look at the exquisite architectural details. Having two courtyards is a special feature.
Shanhou Folk Culture Village
You can wander into two of the houses. One is furnished in Qing Dynasty era-style, with a traditional Chinese bed, typical ancestral hall and kitchen as it would have been used before gas and electricity. 

The other house displays photos and information about similar Overseas Chinese sets of houses built in Mainland China around the same time as Shanhou.
