DengXin pointing the way. 
You take an elevator down to the river. Can we get one of those put in at the Grand Canyon?
DengXin and ShaoBai in the boat. There was a big sign saying no splashing with the oars. It was in English so I couldn’t even plead ignorance.
It kind of reminded my of Disneyland. In a country of 1.3 billion people, I don’t think “getting away from the crowd” is possible.

The cave is similar to Carlsbad Caverns. This is the rock shop inside the cave.
My Junior High side giggled at this sign. 
None of God’s creation is so beautiful that it can’t be improved with colored lights!
