We start our tour in Yangshuo town at the Bike Asia shop, with a complimentary coffee or tea, where you'll meet your guide for the day. We'll go over the route for the day and set you up on the bikes. We'll head out of town and in suprisingly quick time we'll be cycling on small paths and backroads amongst the karst mountains and paddy fields. Our route takes us along the Yulong River valley passing by several small villages where you can soak up local village life and views of the bamboo lined river - this is some of the more spectacular scenery in the region. We'll stop for a local lunch nearby Dragon Bridge, a four hundred year old arch bridge, that spans the Yulong river. After a wander around the village, we'll head up to our start point for the rafting. Here you'll leave the rafts behind and be poled down the river on two person traditional bamboo rafts by a local farmer - he may regale you with a local song or two! After approximately an hour on the rafts, you'll be met by your guide and the bikes for a leisurely ride back into Yangshuo town via several small villages and scenic paths. The ride ends at the Bike Asia shop in Yangshuo.
