Rent a scooter and went exploring. Very easy to do and lovely scenery! Stopped at several places and played around in the river. Had fish eat dead skin of my feet. For free :)

It was beautiful, stunning location, romantic bamboo raft down the river spoilt but four photo stops and very pushy to buy. Shame! Go for the scenery and say boo yaw (no want) to photos.

Very beautiful moutain all around. I took the small boat like all the tourists, the view is superb, but the noise of the engines of all the boats on the river is terrible! I was happy when it ended up!

Very peaceful ride on the river on a boat for two plus driver, powered by bamboo pole and the current. Surrounded by amazing mountains. Hang on when boat goes over dams.

Hire a bike and cycle upstream and raft down stream. Avoid the busy places with chinese tour groups and take your time. Bring water and suncreme with you!
