Whilst the Li river cruise in Yangshuo was cancelled during the weather conditions (water level to hihg and slippery mud everywhere) we went to the reed flute caves. It is special to see how mother nature can create something like this, but they definetly made it very touristic. For example they put coloured lights in the caves when a tourgroup... More

This cave is worth a visit. You can go there by bus, it will stop in front of the cave. You go into the cave with a guide who only speaks English. The cave has coloured lights so it looks a bit cheap and fake, but still very impressive.

okay, so maybe caves are not my thing despite my interest in stalactites/stalagmites and underground rivers. i was more interested in the natural formations and the few bats were saw flapping around than the shapes pointed out (lion, cub, Santa, veggies, etc.). the colored lights were awfully overwhelming and, in my opinion, did a disservice to the formations. i would...

If I never see a cave again, it does not matter, because this was the best we have ever seen, and the history behind told by our Odyssey guide Fai/Chris about all the people hiding there during the war with the Japanese etc was very interesting.

The Cave was easily accessible for all and the lighting highlighted the natural beauty of the formations - well worth a visit!

We have all been to caverns before so these were not so different than anything we had seen in the past. If you are pressed for time or trying to maximize your visit, this is one thing to skip if you have already seen caves/caverns.

Magnificent setting and set up of this enormous limestone cave. The cave has great formations and most are lit up to enhance the features of the rock formations. A definite must visit even if you been in other caves.

Large cave complex which is at ground level. Light show not impressive and the names given to the cave formations need a lot of imagination to understand.

We heard and read so much good stuffs about this Reed Flute Cave. Definitely awestruck when we tour inside. The tour is actually guided and it's in Chinese language. But it doesn't matter, everything is so amazing and you can feel the history that created this cave. It was also a brilliant idea to display colored lights that enhance every... More

My wife and I visited the Reed Flute Cave during our stay in Guilin. It is very large and has outstanding lighting effects throughout the cave. There are several pools of standing water that give a reflection of the cave formations- makes a great photo. The path through the cave is well maintained and easy to navigate. Overall, a very...
