The Reed Flute Cave, Guilin, Guangxi, China. A huge natural limestone cave is the most popular and at 1200 years old probably the oldest attraction around. It is indeed mind-blowing – just look at all that shimmering! Of course the natural coloration is light brown and the current effect is a result of multicolored lights.

It features caves, gorges, mountains and the most romantic Li River.
