Adventurers from all over the globe often come to visit Mulu for something else: lying beneath the dense jungle is a honeycomb of underground caverns and rivers that make up one of the most extensive limestone cave systems in the world. Some of Mulu’s caves are even world record breakers: Deer Cave has the world’s second largest cave passage, whilst the Clearwater Cave System at Mulu is the eighth longest cave in the world. And if you still remain unimpressed, the Sarawak Chamber is the world’s largest natural chamber capable of holding 40 Boeing 747s wingtip to wingtip. Whoa.
As much as Instagram would love you to believe, travel isn’t all about beautiful girls looking off into the middle distance on a swing over the ocean.

Or both. Lovely, I know. But this is #realtalk.
