Lime stone caves with some lighting, mud baths and hot springs. The experience was quite good but little appreciation of the nature. Couldn't get over the commercialism , shops in the middle of cave areas, photo opportunities . The feet eating fish was an experience...More

We wanted to visit the gold water cave on the recommendation of our daughter who had an enjoyable time there. If you decide to visit this case, don't forget a swimming suit, a towel and flip-flops. The cave itself was interesting but not as much...More

80 rmb to see caves lit up by led-lights is a rip of. But if you, as we did, can avoid the biggest crowds, you will have the hot springs (and probably the mud bath) for yourselves. Nice and relaxing. Bring a towel and a...More

Horrible place. There was tourist trap written all over it. 80RMB just to get in to wait an hour to start the tour. At least 30-40 people in the tour. The women gave a boring speech about the cave's history and the different structures of...More

I went there June 27th 2014 with two friends and we were all very pleased. It started with a guided tour. The guide didn't really tell us anything too interesting. The cave itself wasn't very impressive and it felt like the souvenir shop was their...More

caves are ok but lit up like a christmas tree, underground shops try to cash in, the exploiting of so called lucky turtles, grubby mud baths and hot springs. We couldn't wait to get out and see the many above ground wonders surrounding Yanshuo

I get those who didn't like the cave. If you go there willing to see the beautiful interior and nature, you are probably in the wrong place. There are tons of colored lights everywhere that make all the cave look incredible, but not natural at...More

The Golden Water cave is situated inside one of the Limestone hills Guilin is famous for. It's 45 minute cycle ride, or a cheap taxi. Water wear has formed a beautiful cave which has been concreted over. So you can go and have a lovely...More

It was't really what we expected. The cave itself is beautiful though but the Chinese put bright coloured lights everywhere. It was like visiting the fair. But if you can look trough those lights you'll see a beautiful cave. Inside the cave it was too...More

These caves are so colourfully lighted, you feel like you're in a disco. The natural beauty has been overlooked completely. The mud bath area is dark and has a low ceiling. I would avoid this attraction as it is not worth the price of admission.
