People of China – On the whole, the people of China embrace their country's growing tourism industry, and in the Guangxi Province county of Yangshuo, visitors can arrange all kinds of fun activities. One such activity is cruising down the Yulong River in a bamboo raft. Most of the local raftsmen, such as the one who is featured in the picture, are also farmers, and their bamboo rafts typically seat around four people. Some of the rafts can accommodate bicycles, and often times, the rafting tours include bike riding on the side. These tours are simply a great way to take in the beautiful Yangshuo scenery.
