Be prepared to get your feet wet - or lift them up as you go through the riffles! It was a great way to travel and appreciate the beauty of the karsts.

The trip was a nice way to see the area and the interestingly shaped mountains. The four person maximum on the rafts made for a nice intimate trip.

This is one of the easy things to do in Yangshuo, and one of the most rewarding as well. It's easy to book one of these rides in the city. A car/taxi takes you to where it all starts, and from there dozens and dozens and rafts sail the river.

It's not a very intimate activity, as you do share the river with lots of people just like you. However it's still highly enjoyable to see the scenery, and for sure great photo pics opportunity.

After a while the (albeit beautiful) scenery gets a bit borning, but the entertainment becomes what's happening on the river. You start to notice floating shops and restaurants. Actual rafts that were transformed for the purpose to sell food, beer etc. Or you witness the misfortune of some of the rafts stuck on the rocks. And yes, let's be honest, you smile at it too as it has its funny moments. Until the very same thing happens to you:)

You will get your feel wet, so wear slippers or something similar.

There is really nothing like travelling down the Li River on a bamboo raft at sunset while watching scenes of rural China pass by unchanged from the Tang Dynasty poems 14 centuries ago. This is a "top 20" lifetime bucket list experience equal to a visit to the pyramid at Giza or a climb on the Great Wall. It may be the most enjoyable and evocative experience in all China. Don't miss it if you have the opportunity.
