    Visiting summer resorts to escape the heat may be a good choice, but drifting along a cool river may be an even more memorable vacation experience. Fighting with rapids while enjoying the feel of fresh water on the skin might be a totally cool way to spend the summer. These five rivers are named the best places for rafting in their areas, and each of them has its own special features.

    1. Mengdong River
    It is said that people who love to see mountains better go to Zhangjiajie, and those who prefer drifting along a river better visit Mengdong River, which officials agree is the best place for rafting in China.

    Mengdong River is located in the Tujia and Miao Ethnic Minority Autonomous Prefecture in Hunan Province. With a total length of 47 miles, it takes about five hours to cover the whole course.

    The stream flows slowly in the beginning, but speeds up as it moves closer to the mountains. Boat operators sing local songs along the way, exposing tourists to some of the area's folk culture.

    Tourists may have to queue for a long time in the tourism peek-season.
