We really enjoyed the cave. We were on a guided tour and had the same guide throughout Guilin. Have been to lots of limestone caves in different parts of the world and this rates up there with the top ones. As others have said, the lights are a bit 'tacky' and in some ways detract from the experience if you... More

The cave was great. Not a lot of people so we were able to linger. My daughter sang in the depths of the cave for 15 minutes. It was lovely.

Even if the lights are a bit too much in terms of colours, the overall effect is wonderful. The caves are huge and the stalactites and stalagmites are impressive. Some of the halls have been a bit restored and some of the pools have been created in order to obtain the most stunning effect, most of the times succesfully. The... More

Pretty easy walk to get down to the cave. The cave is well lit and has plenty of signs in English describing what you are supposed to see - use your imagination! A must see while you are in Guilin.

According to our guide, it is not the only cave in the area, but by far the most interesting. We were a bit tired already when we got there, but we don't regret having visited this amazing masterpiece of mother nature. The colorful lighting is a tad corny, but also adds drama. You'll have to have a lively imagination to... More

We loved this, I had researched it before on Trip Advisor and was so glad we had as people warned us not to get a taxi or boat when people rush up and tell you it takes ages to walk there once you get to the steps DONT LISTEN! It literally takes a couple of minutes to walk up to... More

So clean and well done, different from any other cave you've ever visited! Great lighting and signage, we had a guide which I'd recommend so you don't miss any of the more interesting formations.

We were lucky to go to the Reed Flute Caves with a local from Guilin. We went on the regular Chinese tour for 120 yuan per person through the caves. There was no interpreter but signs were in english. Caves were very interesting and coloured flood lights added to the attraction. At one point, if you want to go into... More

great materpiece by nature, colored stalactites with different size everywhere, follow the guide in the cave, if the light brighter would be better for view. tempreture inside cave is cool, not big cave, only need more than 1 hour to visit.
