Good fun.

We went bamboo rafting down the river and also watched the fishermen with their cormerants. Well organized and lots of fun. Beautiful scenery.

We did a bamboo rafting and bike trip with a guide, this was great and amazing! The mountains of Yangshuo are special. We visited also the moon hill, but this was a little disappointing.

Very worthwhile if you're in the Guilin area. See birds catch fish. Listen to locals singing. Very fun to do.

Take a small ship cruise in this river for less than an hour. There are longer rides in this beautiful landscapes. If you like to stay more in this area then take the longer cruise. The scenery is amazing and very special. It attracts millions of visitors from China itself and millions of external tourists as well. The small port... More

Much to see, the mountains and county side gave the visitors a view of life along the river. The river was very clean. Fruit vendors along the river offered fresh Frits and vegetables.

If your in the area, this is a must! Suitable for the whole family and a great way to see the area. Just remember, you might get a little bit splashed but not too much.

Take a bamboo raft out for a cruise - have a local farmer be your guide - this is a very peaceful and beautiful place. For a bonus - see if you can get a local fisherman to catch a fish using his cormorand birds.

Its excellent and thus attracts the crowd. Lots of rafting spots and decent and over priced food all around. Stay away if you are looking for peace and quiet though.

We took the bamboo raft tour along the Yulong River to view the sights. There is a short drop at the end of the river experience for touristy photo opportunities which you have to buy from the operator. If you decide beforehand that you do not want to go for photo op, inform your boatman early so that he/she won't... More
