We have visited many caves in the past, but this one takes the cake .... of color! I prefer caves that are left in their natural state with minimal intrusion, but then why not. :-) The photos turned out great which is usually not the case in other caves. I also prefer it when guides tell you the names of... More

This massive cave has lots of interesting limestone formations - the usual stalactites and stalagmites - but is overdone for my liking. Overdoing things seems to be a common theme in China. Colored lights and laser shows don't do anything to enhance the natural beauty of the cave but I guess it makes for cute photos to attract tourists. It... More

We went to this cave with our guide from China Odyssey Tours. It was really fun and a nice break from the heat.

These were the only caves that we visited on our Wendy Wu trip to China. Like many caves there is lighting that emphasises the rock formations that are then given names that they consider appropriate. There is a large underground auditorium.

A very magnificent sight to see. During the roughly one hour tour you will see some amazing stalactite and stalagmite formations taken thousands of years to form. You surely won't like to miss this attraction. The only down part was the constant "no admittance" signs places everywhere and perhaps a little pricy for just one hour.

Nice to visit if you have extra time in Guilin. If you're pressed for time or have visited other large caves in the past, you might want to skip this attraction.

We were looking forward to the "Famous" Reed Flute Cave that was part of our Smartours trip. While the cave is extensive with many pathways, large rooms and water features, it's more theatrical than natural. Colored lighting throughout becomes garish after a while, and the video projection on the ceiling of one of the caves tracing the history of the... More

A nice enough limestone cavern, but the garish colored lighting and hokey video show ruins the effect. Would be better without the glitz.
