Reed Flute Cave (Ludi Yan), Guilin
(3.7/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
Descend into a subterranean world of Reed Flute Cave (Ludi Yan), a 180 million-year-old limestone cavern filled mighty stalagmites and stalactites. Colored lights add an array of hues to the jagged ceilings, rugged floors, and shimmering pools within. Keep your eyes for the more than 70 inscriptions that decorate the rock formations and walls--some of these notes from past travelers date all the way back to the 8th century and serve as a testament to the cave's enduring popularity.
