“Unique Spectacle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

Where else on the globe does one sit in an outdoor theatre with 3000+ others to be entertained by a cast of over 600 that uses a natural river, it's shores and illumination of the surrounding mountains in an awe inspiring choreographed musical after dark light show of a classic Chinese story? One cannot fail to be impressed.

Weather plays a role in the enjoyment of any outdoor event, rain will decrease one's enjoyment.
The ticket prices are not inexpensive, but there are many performers to be paid. Not only do the seats become more comfortable, but also the viewing perspective is improved with the more expensive seats higher up, and farther back. Even the front row seats are some kilometers from the stage backdrop of this performance (illuminated mountains down the valley!) - so spend what you can for the improved seats.

You can visit Yanshuo without seeing this, but you would be among the few who don't. It's not like any show elsewhere, definately a one of a kind. I would recommend making time for it.

“You can miss this one”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

One hour long, singing with whiny voices about what the farmers do in the fields all day. Nice natural backdrop of local scenery but the show, to me, seemed to capitalize on tourist dollars rather than truly entertain us.

“I absolutely loved it!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

I have seen this show at least 10 times, being a Rep. on roundtrips around China, and I enjoyed it every time and so did my groups.
The music, the light and the scenery makes this show an amazing experience. In the beginning of the show, you see a small part of a movie about Sanjie Liu, and I never imagined a story, I more saw it as a tribute to the area, the river and to the people that live along it.
If you are in the area, do not miss the opportunity to se this show, you will not regret it.
1 thing though. I do agree with other reviewers, that the chinese groups do make a lot of noise, and do not respect other spectators. But don't let that spoil your evening!
