You’re probably familiar with the term rafting, but what is bamboo rafting? While white water rafting is fun, bamboo rafting is much more relaxing. So for those of you who want to enjoy a scenic view and float along the water (without getting tossed around or a fear of flipping), bamboo rafting might be the thing to do. 

What is Bamboo Rafting?

Bamboo rafting is a great, eco-friendly activity that allows you to see the beautiful views of a river from the safety of a raft. This activity is eco-friendly because, as the name suggests, the entire raft is made out of bamboo! These rafts can easily hold a number of people because they can be up to 25 feet long.

Is Bamboo Rafting Safe?

You might be hesitant to trust a bunch of bamboo tied together, but it’s actually extremely safe and sturdy. It’s recommended to hire a guide that will steer the raft and guide you along the river, as this will help you actually enjoy the ride. 

What Can You Do On the Raft?

Okay, so now that you’re on the raft, what do you do if you’re not steering? Well, you can relax! Bring a drink and sit back as you view the jungle from the water. If it’s a hot day, don’t worry because you’ll get some splashes of water to keep you cool.
