R&R

Miri is the starting point for adventurous travel. From here you catch a plane to Mulu, take a trip on the river, or drive to some very interesting caves. Miri started out as a small fishing village and has grown into a busy prosperous town.

We got a taxi from Brunei to Miri because the planes were not flying there at that time. We needed to be in Miri to fly to Mulu.

We spent two wonderful nights at a resort overlooking the sea.
Looked around town and walked on the beach.

Pros and Cons

    This looks like a tranquil spot, Kay. A long walk along the beach in the morning or early evening would be wonderfully restorative...

    Looks like you picked a great place to relax at the Royal Hotel Miri. The Cottage looks wonderful.
