Caves play a big feature in Guilin/Yangshuo’s scenery, and so we visited the famous Silver
The caves are gorgeous though – one of the nicest onces I’ve seen. The limestone formations are huge and breathtaking. My favourite was a huge cave that stretched upwards, but was surrounded by absolutely still, crystal clear water. It mirrored the image perfectly so when I first approached, I thought we were actually standing on a precipice and it was a huge drop down – before realising it was just shallow water that was mirroring the image. Amazing.
So far, this was the nicest cave I’ve seen in China. Any recs for any better ones? 🙂
Pretty red lanterns

All blue and eerie-like
Gorgeous cave roof
The most GORGEOUS cave…
…with water so clear and still that it was mirrored perfectly!
Lazy ass women being carried on a bamboo chair. WTF??!!

Outside, there were 2 gorgeous peacocks to take photos with (if you paid)
