We visited it on Saturday and there were crowds of people taking photos on each step. Commercial photo-stops on the most interesting places (you can come there to buy a photo but not to take a look). Lack of air inside, colorful lights, souvenir shops...More

All Chinese caves are lighted in a way we find tasteless so we were prepared for that. It wasn't very busy on the day we visited so we loitered until the group had moved on and went at our own pace. (The guides have microphones...More

Almost everything about this place is unbelievably bad. I was traveling with my wife and infant son. The Chinese guys that push the little boats along smoked the whole time and tossed their butts into the cave water. The colored lights inside the caves didn't...More

A terrible terrible tourist trap - quite literally, you will be trapped. After queuing for ages and actually entering the cave, we couldn't wait to get out of there. The artificial lighting really ruined the place, and then you get endless rooms with souvenirs and...More

What a joke! Seriously reminded us of Disneyland's "It's a small world" ride. Fake lighting, cheesy music, horrible narration, made-up stories about the shapes inside the cave, and definitely the worst part of our 2 weeks in China. You also have to wind through 20...More

Multi-coloured shiny lights, neon signs, plenty of Chinglish, massive overcrowding and independent tour guides with screeching loud microphone/speaker combos. More gift shops than you could shake a stick at, including one that is actually underground. Lots of evidence of stalactites and stalagmites being broken off...More

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...More

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.
