I done the bamboo rafting along the Yulong River 2 days ago and it was very beautiful. There is also bamboo rafting along the Li river but this is not real bamboo, but just plastic.

We took a bamboo raft twice in two days.There is not set price and on the first day paid 15yuan after the rafter demanded 30 but he caved in when we walked away.The next day they accepted 15yuan without too much trouble.
