Wonderful relaxing way to see the uniquely beautiful scenery here. One tip though! We bought the raft man a beer and told him that we wanted to go straight on. Then he didn't pull in to every photo and drink jetty along the way!

We had bamboo rafting with our tour group in Yangshuo. The bamboo raft was a large one for 8 people. We passed through the beautiful scenery. There was a young woman from Zhuang minority sing a song along. We were very interested in watching the show of Cormorant fishing.

didnt like it...busy, many big boats! noisy, motor boat raft, pollution. paid rmb240 for 2 ppl. Li river rafting is crap! when we went to the booth to buy ticket the girl lied to us saying it cost rmb216 per person. well we didnt read chinese so could not tell she was lying to us. Then there's a lot of tout coming in to ask you to pay rmd380 for the ride 2 person per raft. we bargained down to rmb240. we did from yangdi to xinping. the raft driver started his boat, after 3 minutes he stopped us at one section and asked us to get down and take some pictures, THE REASON was the police was around and he didnt have license to take us! Super pissed. after waiting for 15 minutes, the police left and we continue with our journey! i thought yay! finally, but then upon reaching xinping...he didnt stop us at the xinping pier, but another pier before xinping. we then walked through some farm around probably 800km to xinping old town! regretted taking this ride!! but we had no choice! ticket booth sales girl was probably part of the scheme with the old ladies. While walking we met some chinese tourists told us the ticket is only rmb110 per person, so 2 person would be rmb220 only! so we paid extra and get into some inconveniences for our raft trip. They had 4 ppl on the raft say they paid rmb300 , it was cheaper for them. so they took it. but they told us we should have taken the official raft! LI RIVER is NOT GOOD! maybe if you go early in the morning 6-7 AM will be better. but i didnt like the motor raft, too disturbing!

I liked the view but for the half price you have to fight, for 2 hours they wanted me and a friend let us paid 380 after discussion 150 Yuan for 2 hour bamboo boat...
And they try even if you say 2 hours to make it in 1H30 so you have always to clear the situation to get what you dealed in the beginning...
