We only had a few hours to do something in Guilin on our first day in the area and this turned out to be a great choice. Caves were very impressive and very big. Lights inside were fun, a little cheesy, but made it different. 2 hours of good fun!

The cave was very colourfully lit up so it was a bit unusual from other caves I have visited in other parts of the world that are more natural in their appearance, so it is definitely done to appeal to Chinese tastes but I liked it and found it very beautiful. Some westerners would like it and some may find... More

Reed Flute Cave is about a half hour drive out of Guilin center. There are two entrances - one for tour groups and one for private tourists. We were so fortunate that there were no groups in the cave at the time we visited. The cave itself is quite remarkable and very worth the time to see it. They've used... More

They have done a great job here to showcase the stalactites and stalagmites by shining red, blue and other colors. At the end of the tour, they even project a very nice 3D movie on the cave ceiling. Overall, it is worth a visit.

Did this on a 17 day tour of China and it was well laid out and tour was great but when you understand it is not a living cave system you know why they have lit the whole thing like a disco

It's a massive cave with limestone formations, but it's main beauty comes from the lights - all of stalactites and stalagmites are lit with different colours and it's magnificent. Unfortunately, we have not found English guides, so we just walked around the cave and took a lot of pictures, Be sure to get in time for the short light show,... More

This is one of the massive limestone cave I have ever visited. The limestone formation at every sections are just simply amazing and the lighting enhanced it ever better. If you have been to one of these limestone cave, you may want to appreciate the limestone formation and history rather than to be intrigued by the lights. When I asked... More

If you are into caves...one might even say it is a cave of wonders. How the locals were able to preserve the beauty of it all.

Lovely light show in an extensive cave network...the caves are massive and during our visit we did not feel crowded aslong as we kept away from the guided tours!
