A bit over crowded

Well worth visiting but the neon lighting is a little garish. It is cool but very humid inside and the crowds can be claustrophobic !

To get to the cave you have to climb a bit or take a monorail. The cave is not very big but nicely iluminated, looks beatiful inside. Definietly worth visiting.

If you have never visit a big cave similar to this, it's worth to visit. Formations are spectacular. But the lighting is too colourful and too much "stories", you would be lucky if you couldn't understand Chinese :-). Tickets are too expensive.

We at first thought that the Reed Flute Cave was going to be an underwhelming tourist trap. But the absolute scope, size, and variety of formations made it a very worthwhile, enjoyable visit. Our China Highlights guide, Henry, knew absolutely where to position us for the brief light show, and he also was able to point out the key formations.... More

This is the second times i visited a limestone cave. The rock features are special and if you have never watched one, you should go. I have visited one so this one is not particularly special to me. Although there is one special feature in the middle of your rock and you can get great pictures inside the cave with... More

An amazing experience with a few surprises during the walk. Unfortunately you cannot pay with card (Except Chinese) for the entrance. As usual in China, the place is overfilled with people. Number one thing I would recommend is to leave the group and just walk by your self once you in. Between the big groups there are rarely any people!

Lots of walking by this stage of the trip we were very tired and sore feet. The cave did not really have any features that we had not seen before in caves in Australia. towards the end of the tour a video was played of the roof of the cave something different. would not recommended nor re visit

We went there in the morning of a very hot summer. It was naturally fresh inside that I wanted to stay all day! ;-). The cave is lit up with multiple colors that allow you to see the different formations of the rocks. It could be a little slippery so wear appropriate shoes. Use your imagination to see different figures... More

The caves were really nice but certainly not real or natural!! Lit up in multicolor likes, videos projected on walls, it was a cute trip but not aweinspiring.

Any trip to Guilin would be incomplete without a visit to this cave. Although it is only a 0.5km trek, you won't be disappointed. Midway through there is a 3D show that will blow your socks off, no glasses necessary. Tip, turn off your flash and hold the camera steady for some nice photos.
