Outstandingly illuminated caves very near the surface with stunning stalactites and stalagmites. There are interesting interpretations by helpful guides and an audio visual show inside the caves which runs regularly. The caves are a major attraction for visiting foreign dignitaries, politicians and film stars and it's easy to see why.

My wife and I visited the caves as part of our Wendy Wu Tour in May 2014. With the coloured lights providing highlights to selected rock formations, parts of the journey through the caves are spectacular. The video presentation which is projected onto the roof is both unexpected and "brilliant". Some people may not appreciate the coloured displays because they... More

My friends and I travelled to Reed Flute Cave and upon arrival could not purchase a student ticket. Allowing only 2 out of the 6 of us students through, because we did not all have our Chinese student ID, despite showing our foreign student cards and all attending the same university. Talked to manager who denied us the tickets too.... More

The lighting in the cave on the stalagmites and stalactites depicting different images was well done. The cave was a welcome relief from the heat. The light show on the ceiling was fantastic, really made the visit to the cave.

Beautiful as most of the reviews describe here, except the wrong information of thousand years turtle ... the local Chinese commenter should correct this wrong information, especially to the Chinese students, turtle life span shorter than 200 years.

I thought, oh boy - a cave, but was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. It was a LOT of walking, but cool inside the caves - which is a welcomed relief from the humity. It is lit up with colored lights and really quite beautiful. Outside, we were able to see the fisherman with his commerant birds, which, even though... More

Prior to this cave we visited the Silver cave and the gold water cave. No regret for visiting the third one. This one is smaller but no less exciting. One spacious grotto, called Crystal palace is of extreme interest. You stand there and watch a part of the dance from Piotr Chaikovsky's Swan lake performed by 2 ballet dancers. To... More

The Reed Flute Caave is a treat not to be missed. The cave in and of itself would have been great, the special effects lighting really makes this place extraordinary! We were so disappointed that our photos didn't show the true magnificence of this place. The cave is well lit and an easy walk for anyone- no climbing or difficulty... More
