Handicrafts in Miri

by arissyam

Salams and Hi,

I'll be arriving in Miri for a week trip (school hodiday)on Saturday noon before leaving for Mulu on Monday and hoping to settle my shopping before goin to Mulu.

there are few questions

1. What's the time Tamu in Miri normally started and ended? is it only open on the weekend?

2. Is the Tamu sells only fresh produce or more likely open wet market? or they do sells some handicrafts too?

3. Was it possible for me to walk from Imperial Mall to Tamu Muhibbah area or it would be better if i took the public transport?

4. Where's actually Miri heritage centre located? is it the one located at jalan merbau junction? and is it the best place to shop for locals handicraft? will it be open on weekend?

5. How much the taxis fare would be from Miri Airport to Imperial Mall? Should i ask the taxi driver first or all the taxis there use meter?

6. What's the must buy handicraft in Miri? i will fly straight to KL after the Mulu trip...

Your replies are much appreciated. Thank you.

1. The tamu starts quite early in the morning and ends in late afternoon. It is open every day.

2. Yes, most of the stalls are selling fresh produce, only few are selling food, clothes, etc.

3. It's possible to walk from the Imperial Mall to the tamu but quite far, takes about 20-30 minutes.

4. Sorry, I'm not sure where the heritage centre is located. Since you'll be going to Mulu, you can find a lot of local handicraft in Miri Airport or even a "rural shopping area" during your Mulu trip.

5. Sorry again, I'm not sure about the taxi fare but don't worry, there are always taxis waiting outside the Miri Airport.

Recommended Clothing

by longsanborn

Can bring comfortable luggage and bags. Lightweight, cool and casual clothes are best for the tropical climate. Shorts are acceptable for women, even in town, so long as they are not too skimpy. Visitors to places of worship must adhere to the regulations imposed. Cotton shorts and T-shirts are best for going on excursions and when trekking in the jungles.

In the evening, some establishments have their own dress code for dining. For men, this may mean a long-sleeved shirt or batik shirt. Rubber flip-flops are definitely out! Bring insect repellant due to mosquitoes. Can bring basic first-aid supply kit, if you wish. But if you forgot something, not to worry. Miri has excellent pharmacies. Can bring your favorite camera. No problem with photo supplies, because Miri has good electronic shops where you can buy supplies. Waterproofing is advisable all year. Bring an umbrella or raincoat. Can wear comfortable sandals or good walking shoes.

Lambir Waterfalls

by BorneoGrrl

Lambir Waterfalls is located in the Lambir Hills National Park and a place is popular with locals especially on the weekends. People come here for picnics or to enjoy nature with the long walks on the way to the waterfalls

The main waterfall is Latak Waterfall, which is the highlight of the trip. There is a sandy beach where you can lie or play sports and swim in the pool below the falls. Wooden tables & benches are prepared for the public to picnic and restrooms are available for your convenience

On the way to Latak Waterfall, you will see a few smaller waterfalls which are also quite popular. The walk to the main waterfall can be quite steep and slippery so bring comfortable shoes. It can also get very humid in the rainforest so bring some refreshments

To get to the waterfalls, it is a half hour drive from Miri and a further 20 min (pleasant) walk to Latak waterfall

Chinese family restaurant

by BorneoGrrl about Boulevard Restaurant

This restaurant had a humble beginning because the owner started with a small restaurant in Sibu town. Then he moved to Miri to open a restaurant with his family in a shoplot in a new commercial area. Now Boulevard restaurant is situated in its own 3-storey building and can cater large functions from weddings to company dinners.

Through the years, it has also maintained its quality of food and reasonable prices. This restaurant doesn't serve pork so the muslims can enjoy their meals here as well There's to many to mention plus the menu changes from time to time. The ones I tried that I like were

- Weekend dim sum (selection)
- Tossed jungle ferns Thai style
- Steamed King prawns
- Hot & Sour soup
- Steamed fish (spicy)

Visit Wind Cave

by DanielF

This Cave, which is actually part of the Clearwater Cave system, got its is name from the cool breezes that blow in its corridors. Our visit did not go further than the so called "Kings Room", which is its broadest and most beautiful part.

This picture shows the sharp rock formations hanging from the entrance of Wind Cave.
