Attractions near the Tune Hotel Waterfront Kuching
Exploring the Fairy and Wind Caves
Take a day trip less than one hours’ drive from Kuching City to discover the magic of these naturally formed caves. One is the Fairy Cave, named after the stalagmite resembling a Chinese deity at its entrance. Sun shines down into the main chamber, highlighting its limestone formations.
Make sure you capture the unique stalagmites and stalactites on camera, before venturing out into the nearby Wind Cave. There's a consistent flow of cool air that runs through it and you're likely to encounter the many bats and swiftlets that call this dark tunnel home.
Visiting Sarawak Cultural Village
Introduce yourself to Sarawak’s culture and lifestyle by visiting the Sarawak Cultural Village, also known as the 'Living Museum'. Home to around 150 local residents, the Village is spread across 6.5 hectares and is located just a short drive from Kuching. While visiting, you can see traditional activities such as the processing of sago and the creation of handicrafts.
Take some time to wander around replicas of buildings that reflect all major ethnic groups in Sarawak, enjoy the live dance and theatre performances put on by the villagers, and to get a taste of local cuisine at the restaurants. Depending on the time of year you’re visiting, you might be able to experience the World Harvest Festival or the Rainforest World Festival.
