The Wind Cave is a dramatic contrast consisting of multiple river passages through the rock leading to an entrance on the far side of the hill overlooking the Sarawak River. A raised wooden walkway leads through the cave giving a close-up view of the bats roosting nearby and to look for cave dwelling insects.
The Fairy Cave is the largest cave entrance in the Kuching area and is a few minutes away from Wind Cave by vehicle. Access requires a bit of exertion but is safe and is by way of concrete steps rising about 100 feet with a further set of wooden steps to the main chamber. The roof of the chamber towers above you as you enter through a small side passage. This enormous space was carved out from the rock by the action of water with the stalactites, stalagmites and columns which adorn the chamber having been formed subsequently. Learn from the guide the tales of how Fairy Cave took its name.
At 17:30 depart the caves to visit the old and once forgotten town of Siniawan. Recent years, efforts have been made to revive the traditions and cultures of this old town. For many years Siniawan was a sleepy hollow until the Hakka farmers returned to the area. Today Siniawan is not only a historical town, but a quaint “village” with a thriving bird’s nest business. Take a walk around the town admiring the shop houses as they retain their original facades before returning to Kuching city at approximately 19:30.
Weekends only: Enjoy the Night Market over a Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 18:00 where a variety of Hakka hawker stalls sell home cooked food (own expense).
