One of the best caves around-not crowded as the others

Very nice cave overall and much less packed than the Butterfly Cave in Yangshou (which is super packed with Chinese tourists). Need a tour guide to get the most out of it. We... read more

Reed Flute Cave is an absolute must do. I consider it to be the best cave I have ever visited. The history is also quite incredible.

Very nice cave overall and much less packed than the Butterfly Cave in Yangshou (which is super packed with Chinese tourists). Need a tour guide to get the most out of it. We recommend Wendy Wei (#1 on Trip Advisor). Interesting 3D movie in the "Crystal Palace" section, but it can be ruined by other tourists that forget to turn... More

A little expensive (120 RMB) but worthy. Cannot miss it in Guilin. Forse un po' caro (120 RMB) ma ne vale la pena. Per me è un must a Guilin.

Beautiful and a must see. We enjoyed the shopping beforehand and afterwards too. The lights make the cave look stunning!

You can find lots of information about this cave on internet. It's the most famous cave in Guilin city. It's quite near from the downtown about 20RMB by taxi. However, the entrance fee is quite expensive, around USD20. You can rent an English speaking tour guide when you buy the tickets. I think it's very useful to have a guide,... More

The cave is excellent to see inside, but I thought the colored lights were cheesy and very commercial. Why not light it up with normal white lights so that people can experience the 'real' color of the stones - of course it's for money which isn't that cheap (I believe around 140 for adult and half price for students with...

One of the wonders of nature. I've never been into a cave so big! One of our group hired a sedan chair to have a taste of luxury in the old China days! Lots of natural formations to see. And it could be cold in there, so bring something warm.

This cave is one of the many natural wonders that had been my motivation to visit China. The cave itself is everything it should and could be, the downside was the artificial lighting. I thought it was overdone, tacky, and offensive to the cave's natural beauty.

A little surreal, we paid for admittance and were let in to begin our tour, but the lights kept going dim unless we were around one of the Chinise Tours with guide going through the cave. We ended up just kind of tagging along and following on of these tours so we could see everything. (warning to Cave adventures, this... More
