We spent several days in Guilin and Yangshou and the highlight was this show. It has been one of the highlights of our trip to China. This show is a must see, extra special when you consider the performers are not professional dancers and singers, but farmers, fishermen and school kids. It is all in local minority language but it... More

Grand and spectacular.The audio and lighting for the show was very good.This is one event you must not miss when in Yangshuo.This is the water version of a similar show we saw on land in Lijiang called Impression Lijiang. Get at least the 238Yuan seat for a better view and seat.

This show is well worth seeing. The backdrop is the Li River & the gorgeous mountains. Hundreds of performers create the show right on the water. Wear lots of bug repellant & bring a fan.

Understand what it is: a multimedia show on par with the Olympic Games opening ceremony. It's magnificent, mastodontic and over the top. It is unique and not to be missed, but at the same time it is kitsch and very "commercial".

Bring bug spray but be prepared to be blown away. We had no idea what they were saying and did not understand one word, BUT, even with that being said it was wonderful. What we loved about it also was that the 600 cast members are local people who live in the village.

The show is impressive in many ways, from the natural theater on a river surrounded by hills to the huge number of participants. It is well worth seeing but ticket prices seem to be pretty variable. We booked with a tour agency and were charged US$50 but saw signs for tickets going for 50 RMB (~ US$8).

I thought this program was spectacular. It tells the tale of the minorities that live in the Yangshuo region through a fantastic presentation with over 600 in the cast! Show is down on water as well as land. Brilliant use of lights. Downside, seats are very uncomfortable and most in audience talk loudly. Also there is no English translation.

When I heard it was a light show I thought it would be like those laser shows that are quite common now, however thought since we were there we should go. Well it was AMAZING. Like others you couldn't understand what they said but Hey .. we are in another country and that is all part of the experience. Even... More

We secured tickets through our private guide and were seated in the penultimate seating area. The tickets were expensive, but we had very good sight lines and our seating was comfortable. We are associated with theatre productions and entertainment, so we came to the production with a critical eye that the general public might not share. We could pick the... More
