  • Very cool the way the lighting was in a bunch of areas of the cave. Can be a little tricky taking pictures here with all the different colors and ways it might come out on your camera/phone. Very crowded. Hard not to take a picture without anyone in front of you. Overall a good time for the families and friends.
  • No bad at all. Very interesting cave in the middle of giant huge garden. Cool!
  • Terrible loudspeaker voice from staff. Totally annoying. And cheap videos inside. Other way the nature cave would be so great
  • It's interesting to do one of these, but Guilin is filled with caves and caves and more LED-lit-up rainbow-colored caves. That being said the Reed Flute is one of the more famous ones and worth the trek through. I mean after all, Nixon was here.
  • Except when it's crowd this place gives the feeling of the long time need to build such amazing natural view. It's so special to know even Deng Xiaoping has been here.
