Discover the Yulong River on a holiday to China
The Yulong River is a small stream that is a tributary of the Li River that passes from Guilin into the small town of Yangshuo. Its jade-green waters are rich with fish and stretch over 16km. The charming scenery that cushions the Yulong River is one of true beauty; the riverbank is home to many rolling hills, fresh green grass and impressive bamboo forests that stretch as far as the eye can see.
The local cormorant fishermen are often seen floating on their hand-made bamboo rafts which adds further to the idyllic image of this natural haven. What makes the Yulong River so beautiful is that motorized vehicles are not allowed to travel its length, allowing the waters to remain as calm and tranquil as the scenery around. Visiting the Yulong River creates a unique experience that allows visitors to move at a different pace from the bustle of normal life; an undisturbed centre of tranquillity.
