“Don´t miss the boat trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

The trip with the boat on Yulong River was a very nice, quiet and fun experience despite the cold and rainy weather. Good service, nice panorama with karst hills, historical bridge, cormorans etc. Recommend to try.

Totally relaxing and how we would love to be back on the Bamboo raft cruising on the beautiful Yulong river.

“Deeply calming and awe-inspiring”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

From the formation of rocks to the weather, the silence about the river to the nature that surrounds it, the place makes you sit back in deep relaxation. Nature is understandably relaxing and therapeutic, but this place tops everything in how calming it could be.

“No option but to relax and soak it all in!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

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!!!

“Peaceful and beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

The river, rafting and rapids are great fun. Hope you have a better boatman than we did as he got stuck twice but I would highly recommend that you experience this rafting trip. You may get your feet wet!! The setting and scenery is either out of a movie or from a painting or both. Don't miss.
