One of the most amazing light shows ever and would reccommend it to anyone.If you go with a tour and have it explained feel it would be almost superfluous as just taking in the showw itself is so fascinating

It has been several years now since 'Impression Liu-san-jie' first shown in Yangshou and yet still very popular with both local and foreign tourists. The production director of the show is non other than Mr Zhang Yimou , the same person who directed the opening ceremony of 2008 Beijing Olympics. He is very skilful in directing show on a big...

Great light and music show, gorgeous scenery, and impressive amount of actors. it was impressive, but the story was difficult to understand because we don't speak Mandarin and there was no real information about the content of the show in English available. Chinese (tour) groups have different customs when visiting a theatre show then we are used to.

Perhaps I have seen too many Zhang Yimou's impressions show. I was quite disappointed with this particular one as I could not catch any story line. The stunning bits were the backdrop with the limestone hills; the section with the red cloth filling the performance area (this was really amazing), and the last part with the hundreds of performers appearing...

Great light and music show with ~600 actors. The scenery behind is amazing and makes the entire show even more impressive. Definitely worth it if you are in Yangshuo!

A very impressive show, with some stunning visuals, others less so. The story is hard to fathom for non-Mandarin speakers but that is not a major drawback. The show lasts about 70 minutes but it takes a long time to actually leave the place once it's over.

As someone that doesn't speak mandarin, we were lost as to what the show was about. But that didn't matter, as it's visually stunning with the islands all lit up and the cast of thousands putting on the show. Be warned, there' were about 25000 people in the seats and it takes a while to walk in and out.

There is a background story to the show and its interpretation is just magical and transports you to ancient myths and legends

7000 people, thousands of lights. Superb sound. A-MAZ-ING. Beautiful backdrop. Make sure you have the "armchair" seats , which, I believe is section "B"
