Bamboo Rafting along Yulong River, Yangshuo
In Chinese the word “Yulong” means “meeting a dragon”.

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.
