I stopped here on my way to Guilin to play golf. It was a Monday afternoon and there was not much business at that time. There was no line to ride on the bamboo rafts. The raft ride was about 40 minutes and cost 180 RMB. There were lots of people there selling trinkets. There were some small restaurants overall a nice distraction for two hours time.

We hired an electric scooter in Yangshou and drove up the valley, was a pleasant drive but roads busy, views were quite attractive. The river is swarming with fake plastic bamboo rafts and orange life jackets drifting down and punting up the river. People jockeying to get that selfy pic without the million other visitors getting in the way. My head hurt. Then some rando village aunty tried to stitch us up for rmb5 for parking in a normal space. I was here 15 years ago, it was just bucolic and undeveloped. Things do change I understand but it's a classic case of killing the golden goose. Will never be back.

If you like action/adventure and seeking thrills, this is not the place for you. If you have a family with small children and want to take pictures of the scenery, then this is the right place for you. We went on a boiling and humid day and thankfully the boat we rode on had a shield from the sun, but it was still very sweaty. There were still many boats on the river which took away from the amazing background of the pictures. It reminded me of the canals in Venice where it looks amazing, but in actuality you are surrounded by other boats, but nonetheless it’s still a must do.

Come to Guilin, come to Yangshuo, come to Yulong River, “Yulong” means “meet a dragon”, which is a nice symbol of China. This place is heavenly, make sure you rent a motorcycle unless you want to walk 12km. Hire a boatman at the price of CNY33-CNY260(different routes different price), and a boat can sit 2 people. I genuinely suggest you live here for a few days, upstream villages, no tourists!

Much less crowded than Li river and the scenery is just beautiful.
You can bike along the river , jump in a bamboo boat, get back your bike and continue the journey.

The Yulong river is located in a prominent area in the main town of Yangshuo. To experience the river and the karst mountains, you can get a short 1 hour long river cruise. It is a small raft with 4 seats. They will only leave when there are 4 passengers unless you are willing to pay more. The boat will ride is bumpy but you will experience beautiful scenery and even water buffalos swimming in the river. There is a photo booth mid way in the cruise where you can take a photo in ethnic clothes. But there are safety concerns. Life jacket is compulsory but the strings on the life jackets are all broke. There are also no safety belts on the raft. Thus this boat ride is not suitable for families with young kids or elderly who cannot swim. Thus the Yulong River is a beautiful trip if you can ignore the safety breaches.

We went on a bamboo boat ride and on a electric mope ride along the yulong river. What a fantastic day out in nature with beautiful flowers, farms, karst hills, and more.
