It is an absolute place to go if you wish to see the beautiful mountains and rivers of Yangshou, which has become more famous than Guilin for its scenery. You will be fully satisfied as I have already read from other impressions written by other travellers and I have the fortune to experience it personally.

We went down river in the rain. The typical tourist traffic was at a minimum, we were able to get amazing pictures, with few other boats creeping into our photos. Our guide was sweet, but a chain smoker. He put his cigarette out when we asked him to. He also indicated which peaks and formations had been used in print media for product ads.
There are dining options as you float downriver, we just chose not to use them.

Another vote for the northern reaches of the river, best accessed by bicycle from Yangshuo (beyond Yulong Bridge). Here the boatmen seem to understand that " foreigners" like peace & quiet and not the shrieking, water-fighting that is the highlight of the coach tour crowd.
200 RMB is the Government fee for a 1 hour raft trip (2people). Our guide suggested this is NOT what the boatman gets for his work! They could spend some of the money on cleaning the toilets, which were more disgusting than some of the rural cess pits I've used in remote parts of China.
Cycling through the villages was a highlight, although the day was extremely hot.

There are a number of hot spots on the river where it's really congested but this can be avoided by going toward the end of the day and starting as far up river as possible away from the coach drop off points.
We hired bikes from tea cosy hotel and they arranged everything for us. We cycled for an hour or two to the rafting. Our bikes were transported to the end of the rafting while we were paddled for two hours downstream .
The scenery was magnificent. We didn't begin rafting until 4.30pm therefore we missed the scorching heat of the day and also the worst of the crowds. An added bonus was that we enjoyed the beautiful colours of the late afternoon sun.
