Cave of the Week: Reed Flute Cave

The Reed Flute Cave located in Guilin City is one of the “must-see” extraordinary scenic spots of China. Legend says it got its name because people believed the reeds growing outside of the cave could be made into flutes. Inside the 240-meter-long cave lies a breathtaking world of stalactites, stalagmites, rock formations and stone pillars that are illuminated by multi-colored lighting to create a surreal experience. The cave is located high up Guangming Hill near the Peach Blossom River and admission costs 90 Chinese Yuan, which is about 15 US dollars. There’s a bus that will drop you off right at the entrance of the attraction so it’s accessible, affordable and a stunning way to explore what China has to offer.

Her tips for success are: travel as much as you can, respect cultural differences, venture outside of the tourist traps, keep a Dream Journal, become a documentary buff, and always save room for dessert.
