Interesting cave flooded with the brightly colored lights that are so popular in China. Underground like was very pretty and our kids really enjoyed it. Projection of snippits of Swan Lake was also beautiful as the dancers were reflected in one of the underwater pools.

The cave was huge with beautiful lighting throughout. Interesting with a guide so you get a bit more history of the area. Found the shop just passed where you buy tickets a little on the pushy side though.

Long (1,5 hours) but interesting tour. Lighting a bit artificial, but great overall. Very close to Guilin so easy half-day trip.

The Reed Flute Cave is a must. As caves go it is spectacular and enhanced by the creative use of coloured lighting. For the less able there are steps but it is worth the effort. A guide can point out the features and a good imagination is required. It can take up to an hour to go round but we... More

We enjoyed visiting the caves on our way out of Guilin. You could spend about 1-1.5 hours in them and they are well lit with pretty lights on the formations.

Easy access to a great example of mother nature at work and a bit of fiddling by electrical engineers. The walk through the cave is easy and comfortable. On display are allthe formations you would want to see. The display in the centre is a bit on the cheesy side but the rest of the cave makes up for a... More

The rock formations in the caves are very impressive and are lit up with coloured lights. We enjoyed seeing them but the tour is all in Chinese and there is a lot of stopping and talking so it becomes rather long and tiring if you don't understand Chinese. We eventually walked on ahead on our own. I did see a... More

Reed Flute Cave is a wonderful place to visit. It is a very large cave full of stalactites and stalagmites in an amazing array of shapes and stone textures that are beautifully lit. The cave is a visual feast. The cave floor is wet virtually everywhere, but the floor is paved and stepped so that it easy to move through... More

Quite an experience. Tourists will be amazed at the size of the caverns and marvel at the lighting which adds to the mystical effect in there. It is a vast warren of limestone marvels!
