We past there on our bike ride and decided to take a visit no matter the bad reviews. But it is not worth seeing. The only good things are the entrance and the view. The rest is all artificial .

Huge disappointment, definitely wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Lured in by the giant butterfly at the entrance but then was simply led round a cheap, fake loop; through a cave and then round to a viewpoint and back down a path which led you past...More

Complete waste of time and money. The cave is mostly fake and gaudy. Would not recommend! Go to Moon Hill instead. Much cheaper and much much nicer.

You cannot miss the giant butterfly as you drive/ride along the Yangshuo road from the city center to Moon hill. It is a great place for photography.

Had some time left before leaving the city and thought to give it a try - entrance is 55 RMB so quite high for China - inside so many fake things (not a natural cave) and so loud of all the local tour guides pulling...More

If the extremely loud and terrible quality speakers, blaring Chinese tour guide voices, don't put you off, maybe the gaudy Christmas lighting will. After paying to much as entrance, even before you leave the cave they're begging for more money. Then, once you actually leave...More
