We were told by our guide to see this show so we decided to go and have a look. Before the show started they were selling CDs of the show. Since we had no clue what it was all about we did not pick up the CD. The show was amazing So many people participated in this show. Continuously boats... More

The Liu San Jie extravaganza is visually dazzling with over 400 participants arrayed in changing LED costumes on floats, boats, platforms on and along the natural Li River bend framed by dramatic Karst outcrops. As a musical art form, it was tedious to our Westernized taste. The story is based on a famous millennial old traditional folk tale about a... More

This experience was an impromptu addition to our tour. We were so glad we had the opportunity to see this show! It didn't matter that we could not understand the language, as the music was beautiful on its own. We went to the second show, so it was really dark and the lights really showed up well. For me, this... More

Brilliantly conceived use of Yangshuo's natural features of water and mountains plus 600 players = amazing spectacle. You have to be there to appreciate the scale of the event.

Went to the show with a group of British speaking tourists and nobody understood a thing. Thank god we had been informed of he storyline before hand. Wouldn't really describe this as a 'light show'. Things do light up but it's more water based with a few spot lights and awful singing. Don't bother really as it's not worth the... More

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...
