Yes, as has been pointed out by others, the stores inside selling their tourist tat are unnecessary, but what else would you expect in China? One small difference in my experience to that of others is we actually didn't have a tour guide. They told...More

Pros: -Interesting cave system. Lighting is a little cheesy but can't expect much else for a dark cave Cons: -Expect some greasy, stale water in the so called "hot springs". Pretty sure they are simply fed with tap water -Luke warm, not hot. -We were...More

We were looking for Moon Hill but found the caves instead. Was ¥50 each (or ¥80 with mud bath) so seemed a no brainer to go in. Tours leave every 15 mins. Ours had about 20 people on, we were the only Westerners & so...More

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

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
