When you come there, if you are lucky, there aren’t many people. And you can also have a guide to explain all the way. It is very funny. The light in the cave is very dark, and it is fine to shoot the scene. But it is easy to shoot a black face when you shoot people. Of course, if the photography technology is powerful, you can ignore it.

The difference between Reed Flute and Silver Cave is that the tour guides explain the symbols and stories that each landscape has been set, but the process by which the unconscious is made conscious is accomplished by the other, to make it accurate and vivid and maybe it equivalents to restrictions and inferiority. And you may think that the shape of the stalactites growing inside is more beautiful than that of the Yangshuo Silver Cave. There are not so many devils and ghosts when you take photos. There is also a short sound and light film, the naked eye 3D effect is an unexpected surprise.
