Official ceremonies done, we set off eagerly to tick off the places of interest on our “to do” list.
First on the list is the Yellow Dragon Cave. To be honest, I’m not a big fan of man-made tourist attractions, especially those with a million different light installations in every corner, or in this case, next to every stalagmite.
However, I would recommend this cave to families, especially those with young children for a leisurely stroll through the massive chambers, making out shapes from the stalagmite formations. I can already see a couple of monster faces and a woman cradling her child… The stalagmites are really quite amazing and one of them, named the ‘Sacred Needle’, at a height of just over 19m, has even been insured for an obscene amount of money! It may well be a marketing stunt, but this Needle is quite an incredible feature in the cave.
