Can't believe they block the view of this from the road so you have to pay to go and see it, if you just want to take photos go up to the bar on the 6th floor of the Golden Oriele and get it for free.

Don't recommend to westerners. It is a man-made attraction with far-fetched mixture of so-called traditional architectures. Not worthy a 1-hour drive there.

Well done! I was very lucky to watch the show. The performance on the water, around the mountain, with 600 performers, it was just AMAZING! I was very impressed!!! Highly recommended, but the price is high

Seldom I would like to give poor review. We were directed to an open area and seated. Suppose to be a presentation by some minority people. Three ladies came out and did their hair do. That's it. Showtime over. The stage show was nothing to shout about. After the stage show we walked to see a live cockfight with bets... More

The Guilin elephant has a special place in the Chinese national psyche. If you're on a tour, do be sure to gaze in awe at it to avoid causing offence. Saying it's a rock with a hole in it is almost sacrilegious.
