While in Zhengzhou, it is worthwhile to visit the famous Yellow River, one of the most famous rivers in China. You ride a hovercraft to the centre of the river just to view the landscape. Not visually astounding, just a look to see what it is like Nearby is the Yang Huang emperor memorial

Nice view, was on a hovercraft ride on the yellow river. Very magnificent view, peaceful view. The ride even stopped half way for us to take a camel ride or motobike ride at 20 yuan

I went to the yellow river scenic area and paid for the cable car to get a good view of the river. What I saw was not impressive. The air pollution made it difficult to see much of anything, but what was visible were power lines, pipes, and other construction zone images.

Only worth a visit because this an important area for the start of the Chinese civilization. There was not much to see other than taking the hovercraft to reach the sand bar in the middle of the river. The interior of the hovercraft had seen its better days. Upon arrival, there was a 15 min stop over before returning to... More

Love the song Yellow River since my teenage days, at last on 15April 2016, I boarded a hovercraft to travel across the Yellow River of Zhengzhou. Wow, the hovercraft was fun and thrilling. It travelled both on land and water. We stopped at a sand bar where we could look at the views across the river. Horses were available for... More

Unless you find used condoms sanitary napkins, beer bottles, and the filthiest bathrooms in China (and that is saying a lot) skip this one. It is basically a landfill with a shallow, doubtless polluted as hell, river flowing through it. Do not recommend.

The Yellow River is renowned as the area of the first civilization in China. The Yellow Emperor wrote the Yi Ching studying the River. You can take a boat ride down the River and touch it's magic waters. There is a park with 3 large faces of the first three Emperors of China. A very historical area to visit.
