Miri, Sarawak

Depart from Kuala Lumpur by Malaysian Airlines System MH 25XX at 10.05. The flight to Miri transits at Kuching International Airport for 45 minutes before arriving Miri.

Stayed at Dynasty Hotel, the one I stayed during my first visit to Miri in 1997. This is the third time I stayed at the Dynasty.

Miri, the second City of Sarawak, and is situated on the north eastern part of Sarawak. It borders with Brunei on the east. The City has grown phenomenally since oil was first discovered in the early 1900s, burgeoning into the modern and dynamic business, commercial and educational centre it is today. It is also the stepping-off point to many of Sarawak’s world-famous national parks such as the Mulu National Park, Niah National Park, Lambir Hills National Park and Loagan Bunut National Park, as well as other major tourist attractions.

Situated at the northern end of the Malaysian state of Sarawak on the island of Borneo and adjacent to the Sultanate of Brunei Darussalam.

Set along the north-eastern coast of Sarawak, Miri is propelling purposefully towards becoming a Resort City by 2005. Miri is just a flight away from Kuala Lumpur, serviced daily by major airlines in Malaysia i.e. Malaysian Airlines and Air Asia. One can also enter the city from Brunei through the Sungai Tujuh checkpoint as most Bruneians does during the weekends.
