Ditto to all other excellent reviews. Fly in to Guilin airport drive 1&1/2 hrs to Yangshuo County and be mesmerized by the scenery. Depends on where you stay but about 40 mins drive brings you to the Bamboo river rafting. Sedate peaceful and fun even for us in our late,late 50's. Beware of the "photo shoots" but if you tip the pole man first with 20yuan ($A3) with a no photo's sign language he will take you often on an outside route to "avoid" to photographers.
The pole man will also bring you up to "drink and food stalls" if you politely refuse you are "encouraged" to buy one for the pole man at least.
The time is about 1 &1/2 hours if you take the longer version so go to the bathroom before your trip...no getting off half way!!!
