The performance is right on the river with beautiful mountains as a backdrop. There are about 600 people that perform in the show and they are all local people from the surrounding villages. It was a neat experience but I wouldn't say that this is a must see. There are so many people and they are constantly talking. There was... More

Our family (sons and their wives) hadn't seen this before and loved it - the huge 'stage' and variety of 'panorama', a unique show.

We were really disappointed in the show. We were told it was better than Hangzhou's show but it didn't compare. Bought tickets for kids but they were given little wooden chairs to put in front of our feet- they couldn't see. Save your money.

Still in shock that they fill this show twice nightly! Couldn't make head nor tale of it but even so production was bad and singing awful. What a waste of time and money

Zhang Yimou choreographed show - much like the one in Lijiang - was beautifully done. The lights, the acting, the dramatic backdrop of the karsts combined to make an engaging spectacle. Go!

The show was beautiful! It poured rain the whole time but they provided ponchos for all of the guests so we stayed fairly dry. We especially enjoyed just being in an audience with 3000 Chinese!

During my last visit to Guilin I arranged for some friends to join me to experience the Impression evening show, wow what a magnificently constructed and entertaining production. Arranged by the same people responsible for the Beijing Olympic opening ceremony it certainly did not disappoint, set in the natural karsts landscapes the special effects of the lighting was first class...

I honestly cannot for the life of me understand the people who have given this unique show bad reviews. On the other hand, the guy next to us tonight slept through half of it and then bought the DVD after the show. Some things are incomprehensible. I would not miss it for anything! Congratulations to all the artists and everyone... More

Okay so we weren't wowed by the singing but seeing the lighting up of the karsts was pretty impressive. Not sure I'd recommend. I think we did B1 tickets and since the hotel had a large group, they let us off very close to the seating where others had to walk a long way.

The backdrop (stage) is amazing, the number of actors impressive. The show is about 70 minutes, 15 of which are great, the rest is 'just ok'. It missed a clear ending.
