We left Yangshuo at 2.30 pm to go river rafting on bamboo rafts (200 yuan). It was a short drive to the Li river, where we embarked on long bamboo rafts, two people in seats with a beach umbrella over us, with the captain standing...More

So many people throughout China come here to raft the river... usually to soak each other with water guns. There are parts of the river where you can go that are less crowded - work with a local guide to find this!

This was both relaxing and fun. Being punted down the river on a hot humid afternoon by a jovial boatman, great fun. Interesting mix of old and new as you ave the old way of traveling and then after each mini rapid you get a...More

Very scenic, couldn't believe my eyes at the wonderful picturesque surroundings! The 'bamboo raft' is actually some kind of tubing, not bamboo however, with a motor.

Maybe naively we were expecting a quiet raft down the Yulong, away from the busier Li. Instead it was quite crowded with rafts and multiple artificial "rapids", each equipped with local cameramen taking your photo to sell back to you. It is pretty though.

Prepare to get wet as the Chinese love to spray each other with their freshly purchased plastic water guns. The tiny rapids are fun and you can purchase photos of yourself zipping down them. Be sure to stop for the bbq fish, freshly caught in...More

The Yulong River is a smaller tributary, much nicer for bamboo rafting. The Yi gets very crowded with bigger boats. Tickets can be bought on the spot or through all hotels.

I think the age limit is 64 so I think it's unsuitable for your mum. Such a shame as it's a lovely trip. No idea if they do a shorter trip than the cruise. walking across the rafts to get seated can be hazardous. Hope... More

We didn't use insect repellent when there in early July - we did use sun block though. there is s shade over the raft but still would use some sun block if a sunny day. Not necessary shoes or wipes.
