Entrance fee 68 RMB (usually bundled as part of the Li River tour)

If you plan to see Guilin's Reed Flute Cave then don't bother to see this cave.

They do have the Pirate of the Caribbean-esk floating into the cave on long boats gimmick.

As other's have mentioned, you have to run a seemingly endless gauntlet of souvenir shops before escaping into the parking lot. It is so tacky and irritating.

The actual cave is a more tacky and glaring use of black and florescent lighting then Reed Flute Cave. It gives it an unreal tacky feel. Same dumb naming of stalactites "Elephant drinking water" "Old man protecting his treasure" - alcohol is needed to see what they see.

Caves are much more narrower than Reed flute so claustrophobia may be an issue for some. It is humid and chilly inside the caves.

Would not have come here if it wasn't part of a tour.

Dragon Totem is in front of the entrance way. Nothing special but the tour guides seem to emphasis it.

Went to the cave as it was part of our Lijiang cruise cum guided tour. Not one of the larger caves around Yangshuo or Guilin. Taking a boat at intervals within the gaudily lit cave made it seem like a theme park ride. Pity, as it actually had quite a lot of natural beauty and formations to offer. The so-called "Mirage" with the reflections in the still water was especially memorable. Towards the exit, there was a gallery-collection of rocks and crystals and far too many things for sale.

This was disppointing...over lit, noisy, many stalagtites and stalagmites appeared to have been damaged in the making of it, and endless shops you had to walk through to exit.

the inside of the cave has been manicured in a way to prevent an honest insight into what it should look like. The guide knew absolutely nothing about geology, topography and allowed people to smoke while inside.

This is one of these typical new attraction for tourist in China. First it is filled with groups which are not the one behaving the best and then it's just too much artificial lights. It's indeed very colourful but it is adding nothing to the place. There is no instruction so you learn nothing about the place. It's located on a busy road which get very crowded as soon as it's the holiday. I think the worse is when you come out you have to go through all these little shop who try to sell you any crap they have and it goes on and on for at least 10 min walk.

Don't waste your time on this.
