This is the main event cave in Guilin. If you are only visiting 1 see this 1. It's really pretty. Would be awesome on a hot day as a cool escape. This is not a great photo, they have the formations lighted to further bring out the beauty.

Touristy. Guided tours in Mandarin only and you must take a tour to get in. Would have preferred to explore a marked trail on our own. There are sales stalls set up in the middle of the cave, which was unexpected. Cave areas are lit up and named but all subjective and several are related to Chinese myths. It is... More

Like any other lime stone cave. Its big, well maintained. Inside the cave there is a show projected on the roof of the cave. The show was really good. There are few structures formed as a part of lime stone formation like any other lime stone cave.

Best time to visit in the Winter, no mosquitos and fewer tourist. Let you have more time spend inside the cave.

Huge caverns, fantastic stalagmites and stalagtites. The cavern is set up with impressive light shows to create a great viewing. To note - there is only a one way walk way set up for the cave. The cave is a comfortable 22C all year round. Not as cool as I would have expected for a cave. Also, look for the... More

The cave is on the northwestern outskirts of Guilin. It was an underground river six hundred thousand years ago. Chinese wonderful imagination made this cave more interesting than many others I've seen. Colorful lighting highlights the various shaped stalagmites and they are named Santa Claus or Tiger etc.. The last area it finally became clear why its known as flute... More

This is an amazing natural wonder. How marvelous that they have developed this attraction so you can tour its insides. They have installed variously coloured lights. It's fun to guess at anthropomorphic shapes in the formations. It takes maybe one hour to tour. We went mid-week when it was very quiet. Only a few small groups of locals and one... More

It seems to me that it's a nice place to visit if you're interested in caves or mineral stones. The lights look cool but all together it didn't leave an impression on me. If you have time - why not.

If you don't want to shop at the end, your guide should just pull you along and not make you stop. The caves were beautiful.
