The Yulong River is largely unspoilt and has a beautiful karst moutain scenery background. There is a well made and well kept path along the river bank that makes for a relaxing and picturesque walk or cycle; even better take a bamboo raft trip to float downstream. There are a number of small rapids that the boatman has to negotiate... More

The river is beautiful and, if you can hire a bike and cycle away from the crowds, you really get a flavour of life in rural China. Sundays are best because there are no tourist groups that day. An absolute must-see.

Came here on a cool winter day. Get ready to get a little wet if you are over 200lbs. The bamboo boats go through small Rapids that sometimes get a little wet. View was unbelievable. This is the 1 thing you need to do

After enquiring at our hostel for the large boat trip from Guilin to Yangshuo we decided to travel the bamboo boat from Yangdi to xingping. This meant a bus to yangdi and another from xingping to yangshuo. Due to having only four passengers the cost was almost the same as for the large boat. For our efforts in finding our... More

You have to do the river bout ride to Yangshuo. The mountain rise from the edge of rive as if they have just been born. The calmness of the river will mystify and sooth you. A must-see.

Hire a boat from Yangshuo if the river is not flooded in July. The scenery is unbelievable and is well worth the time and effort.

Cruise along the Li River from Guilin to Yangshuo is like stepping into a traditional Chinese landscape painting - a roll of river, mountains, ethnic villages, bamboo groves, rice fields, raft fishing... fantastic limestone formations towering above placid waters and green rice paddies. People say: “The mountains and waters of guilin are the finest under heaven.” It was not until... More

An indispensable boat trip in a typical chinese boat driven with sticks by friendly local people, in the middle of the mountains. Amazing views, people, mountains, colors and small waterfalls. Beautiful, funny and unforgettable.
