The yulong rivers offers beautiful spots for pictures and some funny activities like the bamboo water rafting. Not much of rafting but be thankful for that as the funny shape of the boat would make it tilt if there were rafts.

Really enjoyed bamboo rafting on the yulong river - very relaxing with outstanding scenery. we also did the motorised cruise on the li river but this provides a different experience - similar to punting ...great opportunity to get some excellent photos

After a hiking adventure up Moon Hill, this was a great way to relax as you float on bamboo raft down the river. If you can, try the grilled fish along the way!

It was like cruising through a fairy land. I will never forget the wonderful scenery, bird noise and peace.

We got an early (8 am) start for rafting the river in the bamboo boats, and had the river all to ourselves for quite a while, until we got to another put-in point and were joined by numerous others getting a later start. The rafts...More

Get a little snapshot of traditional agriculture amid family tended plots and rice paddies and NO mechanised farming.

After visiting both the Li River and the Yulong River, I would only recommend the Yulong! Both of the views are about the same on both rivers, but on the Yulong you can only take the genuine bamboo rafts without the motors, so you don't...More

Arriving in Guilin Airport at around noon which I have all day and the next day but have to fly out the following day. Seems like starting in Guilin, seeing whatever there is there in afternoon, then waking up early for LiRiver cruise 4-5 hrs and take bus back to Guilin is the typical route for many tourist. Came to this area for the scenery so it seems to make more sense to go directly to Yongshuo from airport upon arrrival and explore Yongshuo, bike paths, do bamboo rafting down YuLong river. any point doing bamboo motor rafting on Li river ? anyways, leave on day of my flight from Yangshuo and call it a day.

It depends on the quality of the bike. For a normal bike I payed 200 Yuan for 6 weeks, but if you like a better one, it will be much more. The area here is totally flat, so it is not necessary to have a mountainbike or... More

I preferred the Yulong river! It's much more quite and not so overcrowded! If you are interested in rent a bike and bike along the river - it's an absolut gorgeous landscape!
