Loved our 1 hr bamboo rafting on Yulong river last week. Each raft is for 2 people, the water is VERY calm and even though it was quite busy (as it was a Sunday) it was still considerably relaxing and just really nice. We preferred this to our raft "cruise" on the Li River as these rafts on Yulong do... More

First, I was sceptical about the ride, but the scenery was amazing!!! Highly recommend it... The ride is easy going, and at a good pace. Lots of others around but doesn't bother you. Have your camera ready at all times...

Absolutely breathtaking!! Bamboo rafting down an ancient river. This trip captures the essences of the area ... National Geographic style. (Karst Mountains, Rice paddies, Water buffalo, and more) Even more impressive than the Li River raft. Highly recommended.

Our hotel (Tea Cozy) in Yangshuo arranged for us to be driven up the Yulong River and poled down the Yulong on a bamboo raft on our first day in the Yangshuo area. We had so looked forward to this, and weren't disappointed! For me, this was a slight favorite over the nearby Li River, and is different from the... More

A great place to take a raft trip on. Very serene and peaceful. We saw water buffalo swimming here. You may get your toes wet on the raft but it is very safe.

Bamboo raft down an ancient river pass paddy fields and Karst mountains. Observe Chinese domestic tourists at play. Cheap and cheerful local lunch options abound.

The tranquility and serenity of the scenery around Yangshuo. Unfortunately the river is polluted due to garbage being thrown into it by the locals.
