Yulong River, Yangshuo County

(4.6/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Devoid of motorized boat traffic, Yulong River makes for great sightseeing as it winds its way among numerous small villages and looming rock formations. Explore the rural landscape along the path of the 35 km (22 mi) long river for a chance to step back in time and visit an area little changed by modern developments. Hop aboard a bamboo raft at the historic stone Yulong Bridge and lazily float through timeless farming communities and expansive rice paddies. As the river averages only about 25 m (82 ft) in width, you'll find yourself constantly surrounded by the region's lush scenery, with easy access to the accommodations of nearby villages.

  • We went for a boat trip on a rainy day but the atmospehere was stunning. Never seen somtehing like this before ! :) 
  • 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. 
  • 在西街邊上散步時看到了遇龍河一角,還行,陽朔處處是景,也不分哪個有名哪個沒名了,也沒特意去主河區域,好看就夠了。
