It is something else to do around Guilin. It is a natural wonder, but human intervention has not been fair with it. The lighting effects don't do much to highlight the wonder it is. But besides that human intervention it is beautiful.

We really enjoyed walking around the pathways and footbridges on the lakes. And Reed Flute Cave is a great attraction with its many natural formations and the "special effects".

The cave is in the hillside not underground. It is beautifully lit and with imagination you can make out various shapes. The lake at the end has a good reflection and the video display on the roof is worth watching. Be warned there are lots of steps - the lift up to the cave is not used. You can hire... More

there was no English briefing during the cave tour. Some small sections of the caves are not real stones, it was made of paper.

Vast caverns with lighting to highlight the rock features. Paved walkways meander throughout the cavern.

It's a long trek from the parking lot to the ticket entrance to the cave. The cave is large, with some parts with really high ceilings but the actual natural formations are not spectacular. In fact it takes considerable imagination with several to "see" why it is named. There are lots of up and down steps, as considerable improvement has... More

This is interesting to see the inside of the Guilin hills, but the emphasis seems to be on the artificial rather than the natural. Most of the formations are painted in multi colored light. There is a sound and light video show with dinosaurs, and another with ballet dancers, that seem contrived. The science and history of the formations are... More

Went here as part of a tour. The caves are amazingly beautiful and the lighting effects really nice. Tour itself took about 1.5 hours and was really very pleasant. Very impressed with caves. Our tour then went on to South Sea Pearl Museum, which is essentially a shop, could be avoided if you don't want to buy.

There is a lot of nice lighting inside the cave so that you can clearly see the different formations of the stalactites and stalagmites. They use all these rainbow colors. Sometimes though, the light turns out and it only seems like the tour guides have this key access to turn the lights back on. There was this tour group where... More
