Very relaxing and peaceful with stunning scenery. Enjoyed going over the nine weirs but the water was quite low!
One of locals' favorite summer cool-offs. Tickets are available at any travel office in Yangshuo. Highly recommend!
This was a planned trip by my agency, China Odyssey Tours. Wow. I had hesitations riding on a rickety bamboo raft because when you step on it to get to your seat water seeps thru but so glad I did. This was one of the many highlights on my 13 day China trip. It's very peaceful and gentle until they... More
Nice and peaceful, down the river on bamboo raft. Great to see the incredible landscape of the region. Go there by bike is great to visit the surroundings.

Nice and clean river - more like a stream compared with Li River, but less crowded, a bamboo raft would be enjoyable for couples. Anyone tried a swim here? lol
We borrowed bikes from our hotel and cycled to the Yulong bridge. It was a lovely ride down quite back lanes and through the karst landscape. It was interesting to see some of the traditional farming going on. At the bridge we had a cheap lunch in one of the small restaurants and then hopped on a bamboo raft to... More
As far as scenery goes, Yulong River is pretty but has nothing on the famed Li River. It is quieter than the Li River though, which can get rather annoying to navigate in high tourist season. Yulong River, with its surrounding karsts, is especially photogenic at sunset. One can still charter a real bamboo raft (unlike the motorized plastic rafts... More
