  • I've been going here for the past 20 years. It has only gotten better. The maintenance of this place is impeccable. It's a great day out for family or even just to be alone with your thoughts. I've seen even artists sit and sketch images here. It is one of the best places to experience the amazing limestone Hills of the area as well as a slice of culture.

  • Very nice ancient Chinese temple, can shoot lots of photo here in both day and night time. Chinese New Year period will have lantern show. This is one of the most popular must visit place

  • The cave is stunning! Never visited this place, it's surprisingly beautiful. There are some big statues which are really nice. But the stalactites are the ones that took my breath away. Worth a visit.

  • Majestic cave with big Buddha statues. Cool formations of stalactites. Locals love to jog and practice tai-chi at the garden behind the cave.

  • A spectacular view inside the cave filled with chambers highlight by electric lighting shone on its extensive ceiling formation with stalagmites and stalactiles. There a few spots where rainwater seeping through it crack and formed mini pool. A good place to visit for it coolness ambience to escape the scorching hot sunny afternoon.
