State of Sarawak Things to Do: 131 reviews and 292 photos

I was flying on standby and the flight I wanted from KK to Miri to get to Mulu was full, so when arriving in Miri airport I ended up missing the next flight to Mulu so I had to stay there overnight. After seeing Kuching and KK Miri is nothing special. Maybe its because I didn't plan to go there and did not know exactly what there is to do. Shopping is not as good as Kuching or KK for a start, but this city looks quite smart, especially the areas outside the city center (on the way to the airport). It is very apparent that the city is 'rich' ... almost a century ago Miri hit it big time in the oil business and has flourished from a small fishing town to the city it is today. One thing is for sure though, there are plenty of cheap places to eat here! My advice is not to go out of your way to visit Miri - but its a decent place for a stopover en route to somewhere else.
