  • Miri was the birthplace of the local oil industry
  • Get an up-close view of crocodiles

Visit Miri city in northern Sarawak, the birthplace of the petroleum industry in Sarawak. The discovery of oil here in 1910 transformed Miri from a small village in the 1800s into the very cosmopolitan and modern town it is today. See the ‘Grand Old Lady’, Miri’s first oil well, located atop Canada Hill, which produced some 660,000 barrels of oil. Today, it has been gazetted as a Historical Monument. One of the biggest Taoist Temples in South East Asia - Lian Hua San (Lotus Hill) Temple – is in Miri. Other Miri attractions are the Crocodile Farm at Kuala Baram, the first and the largest crocodile farm in the northern region of Sarawak. Also worth visiting is the Sarawak Pottery Centre.

Itinerary

You will be picked up from your hotel in Miri/ Mulu and taken on a day’s sightseeing tour of Miri town.

The highlights of the tour will be:

Grand Old Lady: It is the first Oil Well in Malaysia, located on Miri Canada Hill, overlooking the town. It was built in the year 1910 and has produced some 660,000 barrels of oil. Now, it has been gazetted as a Historical Monument. At the site there is a man-size replica of “oilmen” at work.

Lian Hua San (Lotus Hill) Temple: It was completed in 2000 and is one of the biggest Taoist temples in South East Asia. The unique building presents Chinese religious architecture and design and offers irresistible photo-taking opportunities. It houses three statues depicting the Taoist deities.

Farmer's Market or ‘Tamu’: The bustling Farmer's Market, commonly known as "Tamu", has a huge variety of local vegetables, fruits and other food brought in by the natives and local farmers from around Miri.

Enjoy Lunch in a local restaurant

Crocodile Farm in Kuala Baram: This is the first and the largest crocodile farm in the northern region of Sarawak. Aside from crocodiles, the farm also houses red carps and a mini zoo of reptiles and wildlife.
