A Must Do if you are in the area.

Kept trying to take pictures but they did not do it justice. Just sit back and enjoy it ! Be patient with the mass of humanity that shuffles in. the show is worth it!

This is a classic tourist attraction: controlled chaos getting to, into and out of the amphitheater, with mobs of people. But the actual production setting and performance are striking, and the production was imaginative and well-executed. There is a story line, of sorts, but it's all in Mandarin so we just had to guess along. And don't expect people to... More

If you are a fan of the Director extraordinaire, Zhang Yimou, then, you would be accustomed to his work, that's always verging on an epic scale. If you have seen the Olympics opening ceremony before, then, you would be familiar with his signature style. He's been invited to choreograph the Olympic performance after the Committee has seen Impression Sanjie Liu.... More

Very impressive light/sound spectacle, directed by the famous Zhang Yimou. Great location among classic Yangshuo landscapes. A bit too over the top at times. But well worth it!

Only in China (or perhaps N Korea!( would you find choreography on this scale. Use of the natural karst as a backdrop makes this a unique theatrical experience. Just one warning if you haven't been to a similar Chinese show. Everyone talks throughout- to each other, on their phones..... You just have to accept it and go with the flow... More

This was a surreal experience; a light show encompassing hundreds of locals with the mountains as an amazing backdrop. We loved every moment. Our hotel organised the tickets and arranged our transport. This made the whole process smooth as. It's quite a saga to get from the entrance of the light show to you seats so suggest this hand holding... More

The hotel booked the tickets for us, it is a local ancient Chinese love story, it worth to watch, but the road to there was not good.

This show cost us 180 yuan each to watch. We bought the tickets in town on the same day, and in the price we were picked up by minibus and took back to the same place after the show, which is good. The show itself was amazing and what a backdrop! Check it out on youtube. It really is amazing.... More

I can't imagine any other nation making such a beautiful show with such high aesthetic feeling. For me an absolute must see.

You've never seen anything like this. This light, sound and live action presentation was created by Zhang Yimou, who directed the opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Six hundred mostly local boatmen and dancers participate. I highly recommend it.
