Wonderful performance in a beautiful setting. The show is interesting, well choreographed and uses dramatic lighting to add to the atmosphere. Unfortunately the lack of respect and constant chatter by many of the large Chinese audience takes the mystique away from the performance. You are in China and will have to "look past it". The tickets up the back will... More

The show itself was beautiful and a lot of fun to watch. I hate to say it, but the only problem was the mostly Chinese audience - they never stopped yalking (yell-talking) the entire time. Kinda ruined the whole experience.

We had high expectations of this show, but it left us all disappointed. The show itself was interesting in parts, and the backdrop itself is impressive. However, we were left disappointed by the constant talking of the local audience members, children palying in the seats, and the large numbers of people streaming past to leave early. It seemed to be... More

My wife and I added this show at the last minute based on a recommendation by our Travel China Guide, Evelyn. It is an outdoor evening show at an amphitheater that overlooks the Li River and several mountains which are illuminated during the show. The show is put on by over 600 local people many of whom are school kids.... More

I haven't been to any lights show that is why I could say this is worth watching. It is like seeing Beijing olympics on a serene backdrop. At first, all you could see is the river against the famous Karst hills of Guilin then you would notice the flickering of lights. The performers are professionals. They have greatly practiced to...

Maybe we're spoiled or maybe we just expected something completely different, but we weren't impressed. Like most shows we saw in China nothing flowed or seemed to go together (in our opinion). We kept expecting something big to happen and it never did. The mountains were of course, beautiful and the props were pretty too. But, it just didn't do... More

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".
