I hadn't been planning on going to the fairy caves because I had read that they weren't well worth it. I think that is completely wrong. To reach the caves there are a lot of stairs that are slippery, so be cautious. It is best to go by car, since the bus stop is quite far, but is worth it... More

For a mere 10ringhit you get to visit these caves where you here the chirping of small birds and bats hidden in the darkness. The ground is covered in vegetation from the sun light which pears in from the hole in the mountain side. The path is cleared. Beautiful scenery and peacefulness of the thousands of year old rock formation.

2 short ladder climbs needed before you reach the large cave chamber. Near to Wind caves and Bau town and Blue lake. I hear that the lake is going to be open to the public again after being closed for many years.

A must do, very beautiful place, very cheap. Best when not many tourists, of course. Easier if you rent a scooter to go there, or a car, you can also take the bus but not so easy, we missed the second one and had two hours to wait, and getting back to kuching we were lucky to meet people willing...

Beautiful cave. The visit is a bit short and stops a 4pm for a one hour drive but totally worth it. There is not much crowd and the inside of the caveis amazing.

Children or the elderly especially shouldn't go due to the steep stairs and it gets slippery as the cave has drops of waters falling on the stairs. Advisable to bring a bright torch cause its pitch black. Other than that, the view after the steep staircase was magnificent.

This cave is situated around 1 hour drive south of Kuching, near the town of Bau. To enter the cave there is some stair climbing to do :). Once inside the views become very impressive, the daylight coming from a large hole high up in the cave. Inside , too, there is some climbing to do. Certainly worth a visit... More

After climbing the stairs outside of the cave, there were more stairs inside the cave. It was so big! No way to see the view outside the cave (that would be a nice view but don't cut those trees just for the view) but the interior is beautiful for us to stop & admire all the rocks & plants. There...
