It is a beautiful place to visit. We did both the city tour and the River cruse and both these were beyond our expectation. The lighting system inside the cave adds to the beauty. It is a must if you are in Guilin. The next day was river cruse and this too was equally good. Scenic view of the mountains surrounding the river is breath taking. Our guide Sherry was very knowledgeable and had good command of English. Our flight coming into Guilin was very late a norm for China and to her credit she had been checking with our hotel about our arrival and left us a message that since our flight is late we can have a late start of our city tour. Overall an excellent experience.
