The Buddha Hand Cave is a long walk or a short bus ride (number 301) from the town. The cave itself is nothing special. A gravel floor has been laid and there is quite good signage leading you to the only reason to visit the cave: the rock formation known as the Buddha's Hand. Quite interesting. Just about next door, there is the grand entrance to a Chinese temple. This turns out to be the entrance to Fairy Cave. This is much more interesting, as it has been entirely converted into a Chinese temple. There are both the normal images that you would expect, but also some really impressive statuary carved into the cave walls. The Chinese graffiti could be interesting too. A very narrow side passage leads to an additional shrine: that one is not for those of more than usual girth! Fairy Cave made the trip out from Keelung Station worthwhile. I wouldn't rate this a 4 without it.
