  • To visit the Park around the caves and the cave need a maximum of 3:00. Bus from the bus station goes here half-hour, every hour departure. In the Park you can take a protein and a beautiful subtropical forest along the river flowing from the cave.

  • Swallow cave was okay ... very large and well-organized tours BUT ... unfortunately it has lost it's natural appeal in many ways. I am more of an adventurous type, so this type of set-up doesn't suit ...  more »
  • 景區十分大,要走一小段路才到燕子洞洞口。 燕子洞景區分為三部份,第一部份係以宗教文化為主題。洞的入口搭有寺廟,有點似山西的懸空寺,原本是木建築來的,後來因為年代太久遠,才改為現時的水泥建築。 洞壁有大量摩崖石刻,其中一個比較特別的是刻着滇南獨有的鳥頭文,尖端處像個鳥頭,四個字是「誠求必應」。 走了一會,便進入一個大洞,大洞內竪了不少神像,可以說是一座寺廟。這裏的洞壁上亦有大量摩崖石刻,不少都有百多...  more »

  • An interesting place to visit with access by boat or by foot. There are stalactite and stalagmite formations throughout the caves which are beautifully lit up. Some resemble animals and are named as such. Sometimes referred to as Swift caves as well as Swallow caves, the place was once the place where nests were harvested for bird's nest soup. At the entrance to the caves are the names of the intrepid climbers who once had to scale the high cliffs to collect the nests. Nowadays, while the birds still nest in the caves, collecting the nests, hanging signs and climbing is very much put on for the tourists. Each August 8th, 9th and 10th the “Bird Nest Festival” is held. Some local people will climb up the precipitous cliffs to fetch nests. During the three days, many people gather here to attend the risky but exciting event. Worth a visit if you're in the area.
  • Worth visiting, god's creature. However, it is not easy to get there by public transportation. Self-driving is highly recommended.
