The entrance ticket include the cruise on Nine Bend stream and you will need to reserve the time slot for this ride. I booked the slot at 12.30pm. The embarkation point is located at Xincun Village, thus it is best to enjoy some lunch or snacks at one of the surrounding restaurants before the journey commence. The bamboo raft will only start once they have 8 passengers. I was quite lucky as there are already a few passengers before me. It doesn’t take along before we manage to gather 8 passengers. While on board, the boatman will ask the passengers if they would like to know more about Wuyishan and the story about each attractions and a fee of RMB20 per person will be collected. Fortunately everyone agreed to pay, and we were given a full descriptions of each attractions and the formation of the stones. The 9.5km long nine bend stream rafting takes A approximately 1.5 to 2 hours, drifting on the winding stream along the mountain for 9 twists, hence the name. Sightseeing on the bamboo raft seems like a touring of an art gallery of magnificent landscape of mountain, stream, rock inscriptions and dense forest. The ride is smooth with occasional bumpy currents along some bends. Along bend four, there were once the mysterious boat coffins hanging from the cliff but what’s left now are the wooden planks protrude from the holes on the cliff. The bamboo raft is undoubtedly one of the most wonderful part at Wuyishan that should not be missed!
