We passed by the Yellow river on several occasions during our stay in China. On each occasions it just looked like a big strech of filthy and dirty water. Really not worth seeing.

Always wanted to see the river but its disappointing after taking the long ride there. There is nothing special to see, just a river as usual.

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
