The cave itself is quite big which I was quite surprised. However, it would have been much nicer if they didn't shine too many bright coloured lights onto the caves. We were lucky that we had another Western family of 4 to join my family so we had an English speaking tour guide. Once inside the cave there are stalls... More

This is a mammoth cave with so many stops that are colorfully lighted which further emphasize the beauty of the stalactites and stalagmites. Even locals frequent this place. The only setback it the throng of visitors esp. on a weekend. May be better seen on a weekday.

Gorgeous karst formations in the cave. Though it took some time to get used to the colourful lights put up to illuminate them. I thought the lights were gaudy and artificial, yet it does its part to light up the formations. Impressed with the reflections inside the cave; gives the impression of peering into the depths of a cavern, instead... More

A really special and beautiful cave. Note that it takes about an hour to go through. Also, a massive amount of tourists, mostly chinese, are present at any given time of the day.

A very nice cave in GuiLin. we went there by tour an paid CNY500 for transport and entrance fee. The cave is huge but my aunty whom is 80+years old could not join the tour because it includes steeps and slippery floors. my parent whom is 60 and 70++ years old are over-exhausted after fully explored the cave. other than...

Although the cave was beautiful, I kept wondering how much is natural and how much is man-made? The bright and colored lights were distracting and after awhile became annoying. The guide spoke Chinese only and I was not given a choice to choose only the cave tour when purchasing tickets. I had to buy a ticket for the mud bath... More

On our overnight trip to Yangshuo, we visited the silver caves before heading back to Guilin. I'm not a huge fan of looking at caves and caverns but this place was very nice in terms of presentation. You are given an audio guide during your visit to silver cave and it will play a clip based off of your location... More

The natural cave was nice but all the concrete pools, coloured lights and market stalls took away from it. There is a mud bath, hot bath and ice bath (all made of concrete) which they seem to imply are somewhat natural (they're not). They made us pose for dozens and dozens photos we didn't want then tried to sell them... More

We took a Li River cruise which at Yangshuo and which included a 2.5 hour "layover" before boarding a bus back to Guilin. Our options included this cave tour, sitting in a bar two hours or shopping in a Chinese tourist trap town. We chose the cave. Having toured several limestone caves in the eastern US there was nothing new... More

This is a large cave to walk through. You will find large crowds so I would suggest to come early. Even though the artificial and different colour lights give the caves a special touch and "feeling", these lights make the caves something less than a natural thing
