We did a 'rafting' on Yulong river. Very basic: a chair on a bamboo raft, and a boatsman with a pole to push the raft forward. We were not the only ones, but it did not feel so touristic as the 'rafting' we did on the Li river the day before, with the motorized rafts. It is a very pretty... More

Bamboo rafting along Yu-long river is a must-do activity for tourist visiting Yangshuo. As there are many starting points from the various piers along the river, one could choose the length of rafting from 1-hr to 5 hrs. Each bamboo raft can sit 2 persons and cost RMB100 per person for 2 hrs. While relaxing on the bamboo raft ,... More

We took a two and a half hour rafting down the Yulong river in Yangshuo, China recently. There were hardly any other tourists, just the six rafts carrying our group of 11, two to a raft. Each raft is manoeuvered by a single boatman , using a long pole. The scenery was amazing, with all the limestone hills, karsts and... More

We went by boat from Guilin to Yangshuo. We had lunch included, however nothing special about it. The scenery on the other hand is amazing. The shape of the mountains is unique and makes this river trip something special. Definitely nice to try either by boat or by raft.

This is a must do in Yangshuo. Very simply put, it's a beautiful outing on the Yulong river on a bamboo raft guided/poled by a local. It's very basic, nothing fancy, just a chance to be calm, to enjoy the amazing scenery and have a few laughs.

Booking a ride on a bamboo raft along the Yulong River is a definite stop in Yangshuo. A bit adventurous with the small waterfalls and an incredible scenery.

I’ve been to the Yulong River for more than one time. I enjoyed it so much. It is a tributary to the Li River. It is always clean and clear. The mostly interesting thing to do on this river is to have a bamboo rafting. You will see the reeds and pebbles at the bottom of the river. In the... More

This was fun and very picturesque. We were on bamboo rafts, going over numerous artificial falls. There are karsts everywhere, and for some stretches of the float were all alone. Very serene and very beautiful.
