Our guide arranged a bamboo raft trip on the Yulong River for us. I can't recall where we started but where we finished was a few minutes from Jiuxian Village. It was a real bamboo raft made of latched together bamboo lengths. As opposed to the fake motorized bamboo rafts on the Li River excursions, these real bamboo rafts are... More

Definitely recommend bamboo rafting on the Yulong River. Very relaxing and great views of the surrounding karst landscape. Also a good spot for swimming at the waterwheel.

There is a traditional bamboo raft ride station where you can get a ride down the river. These are real bamboo raft punted down the river and not the plastic ones with outdoor motor. It is a very peaceful ride and the scenery is great. There are 3 dams on the river that you have to go over which makes... More

This was part of my China tour, we arrived at the river and two by two split up to go on the bamboo rafts. Basically two chairs on a raft and a guide in the back with a pole. He drives and propels the raft along the scenic route. There are some small drops not really "whitewater" where all you... More

Even though the scenery was beautiful, there so many rafts & crowds of people. In contrast, I noticed that there were only a few... More
