I have been in many caves in the the USA which are world famous. Carlsbad is the biggest in the world but this one in Yangshuo is the most scenic i have seen i do believe. You would not want to miss it since there are so many other things to see and do in town. At night the whole... More

If you like big caves with plenty of weird and wonderful stalagtite and stalagmite features then this is the place for you.

first of all you really need to be fit as it takes a good hour and half to go round but even at 76 I found it beyond thid world.The lighting cleverly shows all the different formations and you can take your own time to go round

The caves are well worth visiting and provide spectacularly lit images and photo opportunities throughout. It's true that the lighting is vivid and significantly enhances the "natural" cave structures; it doesn't spoil things but could possibly be lessened to show the natural formations in real life

We liked the attraction very much with the pillar and the shining umbrella as top sights. Well, we sometimes found ground for disagreement with our fabulous tour guide Jason from China highlights as to what one or another formation resembled. Anyway, we had the most enjoyable time.

Although I thought this was a very good attraction, the lighting was over-the-top for European tastes. Perhaps just white & blue lighting would have looked more natural, but after saying that the lights made some features quite spectacular. One very tall area had a small pool in front of it making it look like a canyon going down a very... More

Tour was with a friendly chinese guide. She even paused the tour to sing a song about yangshuo and the cave (I think). There were English signs. Very well organised

Loved our experience in this cave as it is well lit with lovely formations. Walkways are constructed well and it was fun going through and discovering something new around each corner. It does take about an hour to go through the whole cave but it was a cool and pleasant reprieve from the hot afternoon sun outside. Would definitely recommend... More

Decided to check this attraction out as it was a rainy day. We were cued up at the entrance for 5 minutes for no apparent reason, and only allowed in once 2-3 large tour groups arrived, which made no sense whatsoever and ruined any chance of enjoying the caves. The colourful lights actually added to the impact of the larger... More

The caves are lit with multicolored lights which enhanced (surprisingly) the natural beauty more than it detracted. There were great columns and stunning natural formations. The 1.5 hours we spent walking through the caves was well worth it but I was ready to leave by the end--the humidity finally got to me.
