It's a bit sad that this appears to be the nr 2 on the list of things to do in Guilin. While the cave and its rock formations, stalactites and stalagmites are huge and impressive, a lot of the effect is ruined by Disney style ott colourful lights everywhere. I guess this is an Asian thing that us Europeans don't... More

One need to climb up and down and walk (sometimes on slippery stone paths) inside this limestone cave in Guilin but it is the most beautiful cave among others in Guilin. The whole interior are made up of Stalactites and stalagmites with colour lights The appearances of the Stalagmites and Stalagmites depicting many events or things It was visited by... More

This is my first time exploring a cave. To be honest, the cave is amazing, I felt like in a movie or something. A bit dangerous when walking around, I saw some girls fell down from the stair. Better to wear sport shoes, not high heels. The cave is kinda big, it took us around 1 hour and we were... More

I've been to quite a few caves around the world, including Malaysia, South Korea and Vietnam. Ludi Yan stands out to me because of the beautiful lighting. The rainbow coloured lights made the place look more interesting though a little gimmicky. Some of the patterns and formations in the cave were kind of cool. I recalled seeing something looking like... More

I have been to some caves in my time in England and abroad, but none like the ones in this region coloured lights brings the whole cave to life.

well worth a visit. the ceiling projection of the cave , showing how the area and fauna and flora changed over the years, and even the screen projection of a ballet extract from Swan Lake, although not in keeping with the cave,was enjoyable

I've seen many caves in my travels around the world, but this was really different and amazing. Its lysergic use of lighting, colors and projections made the space a real feast for the eyes, plastic and amusing (though a little naive). The guided tour is only in Chinese, but most of the things she says is the resemblance of rocks... More

The caves were pretty and the history interesting, however compared to the Jenolan Caves in NSW, these caves were fairly ordinary. However the Chines use of technology had a ballet portrayed in a large cavern of these caves. Very clever but also somewhat crowded with the Chinese tourists predominating. It is easier to walk through than Jenolan so was not... More
