The best time to view the Yulong River is in the morning when morning mist where you could not even see the river.

Magic place, go there by yourself and enjoy the view. Don't need to do bamboo rafting or other activities, take a bike or just run

I preferred the Yulong river! It's much more quite and not so overcrowded! If you are interested in rent a bike and bike along the river - it's an absolut gorgeous landscape!
