  • We wouldn't say this is a must do activity in Guilin as it is a little out of the way and costs 90 RMB. With lots of tourists it could get noisy but we lucked out the weekend after golden week and...  more »

  • I came to Guilin and went to the Reed Flute Cave at the end of October 2018. When I arrived at the bus location, I had to park at the parking location located below. We can climb up on foot or take the train. The Reed Flute Cave is a cave that is formed naturally but requires a very long time. The view of the stone in the cave is given a very beautiful colorful lights. The air outside and inside the cave is very cool. We have to go up and down stairs to walk down the cave. Then prepare yourself and maybe be able to bring water in a bottle because the cave that must be passed is quite long. Inside also at certain times there is a short film projected onto the rock and very good. If we come there with a local guide, they can tell fairy tales about stones that can resemble several shapes.
  • Amazing experience here. But it IS a tourist spot so there will be many people trying to sell you things. My group was also given a coupon where we can choose a oyster and get its pearl. If the pearl is not deformed, then you just have to pay RMB 30 to make it into a necklace.
