All the caves are the same. just pick one and go. this one have the mud bath attraction but wouldn't recommend it just for the sake of it. if you decide to do it you can buy a bathing suite out side.

The caves nice to see and colorfully illuminated. It's not very natural anymore and I'd recommend the caves in Phong Nham in Vietnam instead. That said the experience is nice and the mud-bath at the end is fun. You'll float like in the dead see! The hot-spring at the end isn't really hot nut only warm.

As it seems all caves in China which have been opened to the public have been victim to some rather interesting choice in lights we decided to visit at least one while visiting the country. We settled on this one as it was decently sized and located not too far from our hotel. Luckily we got there early and actually... More

We have visited caves in several countries - only in China will they let you bath in the mud and the hot springs. My adventurous boys enjoyed this trip the most. The mud bath was such a unique experience. The liquid is so dense, you can float with ease. Just bring an old bathing suit, as washing out all the... More

The mud cave was great fun and the hot spring afterwards was lovely. Walking through the caves was extremely interesting and amazing to see such natural formations. The tourist traps throughout - like walking through a shop to get to the mud pool - were quite disappointing but not enough to put a negative spin on the whole experience. A... More

My family chose this one over the other cave options, and we really loved our experience. Our guide was "V" from the Showbiz Hostel where we stayed, and he was really fantastic--highly recommend organizing with him rather than trying to go alone. Enter the cave by boat, go past the bats, duck and climb and splash (ankle-deep) and enjoy complete... More

We were in Yangshuo as part of a tour group and unfortunately had our bike ride cancelled due to the weather. A silver lining was that we were able to hire a van to take us on the same route and make stops on the way for brief hikes and photo opportunities; and with the time gained we included a... More

While Visiting “Water Cave” in Guilin Yangshuo, I unintentionally sightly walked over a camera tripod installed in the middle of the walkway by people selling photos inside the cave. The tripod was very poorly installed with its legs almost closed, unstable, and unattended by its owner who was obviously waiting for someone to push it over. The camera felt on... More

Biking around Yangshou, the Moon Water Cave is a must. It is not that expensive and it is the first time i tried to go into a mud bath in a cave. The cave isen't must in itself however bathing in the mud in a cave is really nice.
