Transport from Brunei to Miri

by cubeevyndi

Hi, does any1 there know any direct transport available from Brunei airport to Miri? Any taxi or private car service available? And what is the charges like?

Thanks alot

Re: Transport from Brunei to Miri

by MaTTZaiRi

From brunei airport will cost you hell of a lot, since it takes nearly 2 to 2 in the half hour from bandar seri begawan to miri,

The best way is get a bus from bandar seri begawan to Kuala Belait...

Then from Kuala Belait get a taxi but the taxi only goes to checkpoint.. If you know someone in kb is the best way..

Since its only a 15 min drive from kuala belait to miri...

Travel Tips for Miri

Easy to navigate

by Hewer

Miri is completely safe and easy to get around in on foot. You can walk around the entire city centre in couple of hours and there is plenty to keep you interested. All the landmarks quickly become familiar and if you like getting out and exploring a town on your own, you'll like MIri.

I probably wouldn't drive here though unless I was staying long term. The roads are a bit confusing and I found myself jaywalking a lot because I just couldn't figure out a legal way to cross the street. There are roundabouts, one-way streets, 6-way intersections, by-roads and no right turns here and there. The traffic isn't really heavy though.

Etiquette

by longsanborn

Here are some etiquette for visitors to follow in order to be more accepted:

1) When entering homes, longhouses, mosques, temples and rural churches, shoes MUST be removed.
2) Appropirate dress is required when visiting places of worship. For example, when a woman visits a mosque, her head must be covered and she must be decently dressed (no short sleeves or shorts). For the man, he must not wear short sleeves or shorts.
3) When pointing at anything or anyone, use the thumb rather than the index finger.
4) Avoid handling food with the left hand; this is because the left hand is usually used for the toilets and it's considered rude and "dirty" to use the left hand.
5) When visiting someone's home or the longhouse even for a short while, it is considered rude to leave without first having a snack or drink when offered by the host/hostess.
6) Public displays of affection (kissing, holding hands, etc.) are usually frowned upon, and nude bathing or topless sunbathing in public areas (beaches, etc.) are NOT acceptable at all.

Go to see Kuala Baram

by longsanborn

Kuala Baram is located near the mouth of Sungai Baram (Baram River), one of the longest river in Sarawak.

Kuala Baram is a small outpost/village that used to be the main entry point of tourists from Brunei to Miri town. A large open ferry (that could carry up to 20 vehicles) used to work at the Baram River to transport passengers back and forth across the wide river. However, ever since the completion in August 2003 of the new Batang Baram Bridge or "ASEAN Bridge" that span the width of the Baram River, people have stopped using the ferry.

Kuala Baram is also the place where one takes the local river transport - the Long Lama express boats - to go upstream to Marudi town and onwards to interior villages such as Long Lama and Mulu.

When I visited Kuala Baram again in Feb 2008, I saw a few changes. There were new industries setting up shop there, some warehouses, hostels for sawmills' workers, and new housing quarters for government Maritime staffs. The crocodile farm is still there... yeah!

Despite these small changes, Kuala Baram still maintains its untouched and relax way of life. One can still see the "wild" lalang (coarse Malaysian grass/tall coarse tropical grass) growing rampantly on wide empty fields, casuarina pine trees and misplaced mangrove trees struggling to survive in the unfertile soil, and village children running around half-dressed and playing on the deserted roads. Quite surreal.

To get to Kuala Baram, you can either drive your car (just follow the road signs), take a taxi, or the public bus (not advisable !!).

Inexpensive eating

by BorneoGrrl about Food Courts

Eating in Miri need not be an expensive affair and you can get pretty cheap meals if you eat like the locals. You find a big selection of food at the local food courts that serve cheap and very nice dishes

You can have a plate of fried noodles for about US$1. Choices are limitless, from fried rice to barbequed meats. There are many things to order in a foodcourt. Here are some of my favorites :

- Fried noodles
- Fried rice with chicken
- Dim Sum
- Satay
- Wantan noodles

Get a traditional massage by Mak Eton

by BorneoGrrl

Who in Miri doesn't know Mak Eton? She's a lovely 70+ year old Dutch/Malay lady who probably gives the best traditional massage I've ever had. After one session, I feel relaxed and better, especially after all the traveling and changing climates. If you have "wind" in your body, a massage by Mak Eton will help but bear in mind that it may hurt especially when you have ailments. She may be in her 70s but she's got fingers of steel! She's very thorough with the massage so it will take a while but it's worth it. Basically, the price is RM40 per hour but a massage will run at least two hours

Sorry guys, this is only for the ladies!
