Venue: Yulong River in Yangshuo
Summary: Experiencing the Rafting on the Yulong River is exciting and interesting for all adults who are the traveling lovers. And the Yulong River always welcomes adventurers with her embrace.
In Chinese the word “Yulong” means “meeting a dragon”. Local legend has it that a dragon from the East Sea strolled along the river and, being deeply impressed by the landscape, he decided to stay there forever. From then on, the villagers saw the dragon several times, and hence named the River Yulong.
The Yulong River is prone to sudden flooding which is one of the reasons why there are not more places to stay close by. This condition makes Yulong River as an ideal place for people to experience rafting.
The meandering river is lined by green bamboo and rolling hills. Local people use bamboo rafts as daily transportation up and down the river between their houses, markets, and rice paddies. Sitting on the reclining chair on the raft, you can enjoy an all-around view of the river and hills.
