When I arrived I thought seen one big cave seen them all . Wrong this cave system is on a scale not seen certainly in UK or France etc. Vast caverns many times bigger than Cheddar Dordogne etc. of course lit very colourfully which I the end added to impact and the names were also poetic to a foreign ear....

It's definitely a good free exercise for me! The view was magnificents! But I guess the local authority should emphasize more regulations for the visitors. Please wear a proper walking shoes. The path is slippery and you have to go up and down all through the journey.

The biggest cave I've been to, it takes about an hour to stroll through. Easy for everyone and anyone with wide flat paths throughout and railings where there are stairs. I did it in flip flops, no need for hiking shoes. We went in the low season (apparently) and it was still busy with chinese tour groups, but we managed... More

We rented bikes for the day and followed an inaccurately scaled map to Silver Cave. It took us 2 hours with a none gear bike (bring plenty of water if the weather is still hot). The cave has a 65 yuan entrance fee which we found a bit expensive for this type of attraction but many of the things in... More

Silver cave was a good activity, we did it one afternoon, 4 hours start to finish. It was arranged by our hostel and we took a tour bus directly. Entry was easy and the cave itself was very impressive. The coloured lights lighting up the faces and features of the cave are a bit odd but didn't take away from... More

The tour through the caves is 100% magical! The caves themselves are probably limestone, and therefore rather grey inside normally, they have been lit in such a stunning and coulourful way, the place is turned into a wonderland. It's quite a long tour and quite a bit of walking, but generally well worth it

We're from the US and I've seen several caves in West Virginia and also around China in the Guilin area. My sentiment has been "you've seen one and you've seen them all." However I was pleasantly surprised to see this relatively new cave (only opened within the last 15 years), as it had a decent concrete walkway with handles, dramatic... More

A big cave installed with colorful lighting to highlight various formations of stalactites and stalagmites that resembling certain objects/ scenes. Be careful of the wet & slippery floor. Quite a stunning view! The restaurant opposite the car park was good.

These are large caves! The rock formations are very impressive, better than I have seen in new Zealand caves. Some people may dislike the fact that the caves are illuminated with coloured lights but to me its the formations that are the attraction and these certainly are world class. So if you can ignore the colours and appreciate the formations... More

The Siver caves in Yangshuo is an amazing place and a must see for all the sights and experience. This cave is under a mountain and during rains or just after the rains like in May one can see water seeping through the rocks and it builds the atmosphere and experience. One should keep at least two hours for this... More
