A much more sedate view of the scenery can be found enjoying a two-person, plus driver, slender bamboo raft down the Yulong River, a tributary of the Li River. We all just loved the rafting. It was different than what we did on the Li River. The Li raft was made of plastic, could seat up to five and was driven by a motor in a large river valley. Whereas, the Yulong River meanders, the rafts are made of actual bamboo, the driver uses a bamboo pole to steer and drive the raft and the valley is much narrower with the mountains right next to the river.
The Li River was exciting and the Yulong was relaxing and an enriching experience. It would be hard to pick only one. We are very thankful we did both. In fear of falling in the water, which I am classic at, I did not hold my camera. Mike took all the shots on the raft with his cell phone. Briana and I were on one raft and the boys on the other. Briana and I got to put our feet in the water. Since the day was a hot one, the water was very enjoyable.
