This cave is incredible and goes back further than you think (although cordoned off quite early on). Some tips: Entrance to the caves is a bit off-road and hidden if you're planning on cycling/ getting public transport. We hired an uber driver for the morning...More

We visited the cave with James from Kuching Offroad. We didn't only do the usual tourist trail but went beyond some areas that were not so easily accessible if you do not have a guide who could understand every nooks and corners, and safety too....More

Advised to wear comfortable shoes or sports shoes as you need to climb up stairs. Nice scenery to snap pics and chill a lil. One of the attraction in Bau.

If you happen to be in Kuching, this is a must visit place. The journey to the cave brings you through a narrow and steepe stair, and it can be physical challenging to some. But all the sweat and effort is truly worth it once...More

I had been in many caves previously but never in one that had so much tropical vegetation. It reminded me of adventure movies like the Raiders of the Lost Ark. Our guide and expert caver James took us deeper into the chambers than most people...More

It may not be very well known to the outside world but Fairy Caves is endowed with many beautiful stalagmites & stalactites. It is about an hour's drive from Kuching City which makes it relatively accessible for those who want an insight of beautiful cave...More
