Miri Travel Guide

Sitting at the northwest coastline of Borneo, bordering Brunei, Miri is the second largest city of the Malaysian state of Sarawak, with a population of over 230,000.

Not bad for a place that started as a tiny fishing village. This all changed when oil was discovered in 1910 quickly turning Miri into one of Malaysia’s most important cities.

As a tourist, you’ll be drawn by the amazing UNESCO listed, Mulu National Park, listed for its richness of bio and geodiversity as well as Niah National Park, home to a cave where 40,000 year old human remains were found.
