  • Guilin has a lot of caves, aloe flute can take the bus to here. It is also very shocking, the hole temperature is a bit low to pay attention to. There are a number of speakers, and you can learn a lot about it.

  • The lighting in this cave is tragic have intervene so much that it's a shame we as tourists we go go to see anything natural if we want blockbuster go in Las Vegas really is so beautiful the cave stalactites is amazing and another foul Minutes is that unless that is the exact species entrance while we pay is another cave within the cave where something turtles large in size but also in age where pay and there but 10 Yuan extra and it goes in tracks but exploit the live turtles in this case and there you have inside the little water they have shed so many coins as well the eychwn have done with all the turtles are in a corner the ' and tortured because they are forced to walk on the coins. Summary beautiful Cave but they have spoiled their own shame!!

  • 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.
  • Lor of people here it was pretty nice. I just try the chinese tour :)
  • Fantastic place, never expected it to be so big, well worth a visit if your in Guilin for a holiday
  • Very impressive. We came during the winter so it was not crowded. The cave is well paved but not suitable for wheelchairs. The cave has a lot of lights that make it look and feel a bit staged. But the formations are so impressive you overlook the music and weird Swan Lake performance.
