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.

We were lucky that when we visited there were hardly any other people there, I would imagine in tourist season is would be crowded. We had a guide who told us the history behind the caves and using our 'imagination' we could see the different formations that had been likened to tigers and trees etc. We were aware that there...

We hired a private car for the day. This allowed us to see each destination at our own pace. For those traveling on a budget avoid the shuttle train up, the cave is only a short walk from the car park. The lighting in the cave makes for some amazing photos and the large reflective pond in the main chamber... More

Floodlit cave complex. The 3 bus will bring you there easily and return you to the city. The large, major chamber also has a reflecting pond and periodically a brief sound (music and commentary in Chinese) and light show with images projected onto the cave roof. You are probably best tagging along with a group tour even if it is... More

This is a really cool cave. It is expensive but I think it is worth it. There are so many colorful lights they have added which are a tad corny but still fun. They do not have an english guide provided there and so we had our guide for the city take us here. They were able to give so... More

This is a beautiful cave but not one of the best that we've seen. When you walk around you see a vegetables corner and it needs a lot of imagination to imagine that you're seeing a zucchini for example :-) It has a nice light system and music

this was a beautiful cave and seemed quite real to me even though there was tons of colorful lights everywhere. but it wasn't quite worth the money I paid to get in, especially since there was no guide for English speakers. So, I more or less wandered around bored and confused.

If you are a big fan of caves you would like this one. Please make certain that you have someone that can explain the different areas to you as this is what makes it very interesting. The lighting is very well done. For a cave I was surprised at how warm it was inside. Certainly worth a visit.
