Impressive in scope!

Quite expensive, but a very lavish performance with a huge cast, amazing lighting and the natural mountains as a backdrop.

Perhaps it is my American perspective, but I didn't enjoy this show. It was long and drawn out, the audience all around was talking and videoing and standing up and down, the crowds getting in and out were slow as was the overall traffic. I don't understand Chinese, so I didn't know the storyline at all. Just what I was... More

The show was enjoyable but we expected more of a light show utilising the stunning backdrop. Not much of a storyline but thus means it is easy enough to follow without understanding the songs (which are obviously in Chinese). If you are staying in Yangshuo it is worth checking out. Not worth the 2 hour (and very bumpy) bus ride... More

This was the only thing we were disappointed in seeing while there. It was very very crowded and not worth the money. You sit very far away and the choreography is intriguing but music is in Chinese and none of the 8 people we were with liked it. Long and boring.

Only a 10 min walk from motel. The Chinese get so excited and have to be the 1st in just crazy as the seats are allocated. Great set up and the backdrop of 3 massive rocks which light up when the show is on is good. The show goes for 90min which is plenty. Its about a love story& how... More

I went through a lot of internal debate on whether to watch this show. It was going to be pricey and it would have taken hours from our already precious two nights in Yangshuo. At the end, my husband and I still decided to go, one of those, "got to see it at least once" thing. The show was more... More

We really enjoyed this show; worth a visit Beautiful visual display. Be prepared for lots of people (it is China after all) Didn't like being surrounded by smokers but other than that this was a great evening out. Would recommend for sure

A huge performing venue on a lake, 600 actors, mainly locals, and great sound and lighting make this a very worthwhile evening. It captures Chinese spirit and pride. Combine with a day trip down the Li River.

Three friends and I attended this show and all of us enjoyed it very much. It is a beautiful production on water. The karst mountains, illuminated, serve as a back drop. The only downside for a non Chinese speaking person is that there is no way to really understand what is going on. Our tour guide did give us an... More

Wow what can I say it was fascinating and the back drop of mountains made it so mystical. Really enjoyed the production the hundreds of performers were spectacular. Well worth a visit
