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...

Before I was there, I saw some info online, teach tourist to take bus No. 2 from Kuching and get down at Bau bus terminal and catch bus No. 3 and get down at Krokong and walk 1.5km to reach Fairy Cave. The first part was easy, and when I finally boarded bus No. 3, the driver said it is... More

Big cave with good stairs & lots of them. It was fairly safe, only one spot where you could bang your head if you're not careful & one spot I felt you could fall & die, but again, if you/re careful, no problem. Cheap entry. Worth a look.

Must go if u r in kuching. Beautiful cave with some lovely and astonishing architecture done by natural forces of wind and water resulting in stalactite caves.

Went there last month with my friends, a short hike up until you reach the cave. Be prepared with flashlight as some spots are dark which barely see the way. Worth visiting. Entrance fee at RM 1 for Malaysian adult.

Not very large, a lot of steps to get to entrance and then many more once inside. There's a wonderful view of the upper entrance (not accessible) once inside. Only takes half an hour or so but is near wind cave so both can easily be done in a day.

A drive out in the beautiful countryside takes you to this magnificent cave. Quite a few flights of stairs to climb though, to get to the entrance. You go into, what looks like a dark enclosure to come out at a huge opening. It's really pretty and there are wooden and concrete steps all the way around, so you can... More

I tried to get to fairy caves by myself using public transport. The first bus was simple as I caught bus 2 from the bus stop by the mosque. Bus took about an hour. In Bau the bus driver dropped me by a taxi stand. One taxi was parked but was unable to take me. I walked around the town... More
