  • The reed flute cave was simply amazing. The formations were beautiful and it was upto one's imagination as to what we perceive  more »
  • Very nice cave with awesome lighting. It's a must visit in Guilin. The cave was so big and at least took us more than 1 and half hour to tour around. There is a turtle which lives more than 100 years ...  more »
  • The cave really worth to be visited if you go to Guilin. Follow the roads and imagine the stone figures. It is very well lit and set, really a magical place. The bad is that large groups guides sometimes use loudspeakers which takes away a bit of quiet, but is a matter of get away. Do not miss it!

  • Huge cave. Colorful lighting. Worth a visit. Don't miss the short video about the cave showed at the end of the path.
  • Overall not bad. If you're looking for pretty sites (locations) and not for an authentic style cavern, this is a good spot. Pretty lights, opportunities for photos, but heavy-handed on pulling money from the visitors.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful and colourful cave that is accessible by city bus. Definitely worth a visit!
  • No bad at all. Very interesting cave in the middle of giant huge garden. Cool!
