Travel Tips for Miri

modernity

by picek

Miri is nowadays moredn town and there is more high-rise expected to appear soon. The new built-up area with modern buildings replaced typical wooden villages at the river banks which had to give a place to ugly style of non-form blocks. Pity! As in many cases, the language of money is prevailing over the tradition.

Rain gear and torches.

by DanielF

Ok, this is the rainforest, so it rains a lot here... Most of the days heavy rains drop from the sky like it was the end of the world. Some days it was for just a short spell, but others it would last for hours.

Dress accordingly with the heat and humidity (not exposing a lot of meat to mosquitoes) and have always a light raincoat at your avail. A torch may be useful when you visit the caves, but if you do not have one, it will be enough with the guide's one .

Go to see Gunung Mulu National Park

by longsanborn

Much of the Gunung Mulu National Park was unexplored until the Royal Geographic Society and the Sarawak government surveyed it in the late 1970s. The park was not even opened to the public until 1985. Some of the best examples of tropical limestone weathering in the world can be seen here including enormous razor-sharp pinnacles, deep-cut canyons, and awesome caverns that are home to millions of bats and cave swiftlets.

These caves include the world's largest underground chamber, Sarawak Chamber in Lubang Nasib Bagus, capable of holding 40 Boeing 747 aircraft; the world's biggest cave passage, Gua Payau (Deer Cave), which can fit five cathedrals the size of Saint Paul's in London; and the longest cave in Southeast Asia, Gua Air Jernih (Clearwater Cave).

Explore Clearwater cave

by DanielF

Apart from its impenetrable forest, Mulu National Park is also famous for the aboundance of caves. Some of them have been made accessible to tourists. One of these is Clearwater Cave, which forms one of the longest cave systems in the world. The complex has a subterranean river and is famous for its long and slender stalactites and stalagmites.

Outside the cave, there is a picnic area and a natural swimming pool (of crystal clear water, of course) surrounded by the rainforest.

Tua Pek Kong Temple

by Willettsworld

Located next to the Fish Market, this is the oldest Chinese Temple in Miri, built in 1913. According to local beliefs, due to the oil boom of the early 1900s and its subsequent population explosion, an unknown epidemic struck Miri, resulting in a high death toll in what was then a small village. The local Chinese of that time believed the tragedy was caused by evil spirits. A Chinese wise man known as Chan Chak suggested that a monk be called to appease the spirits. Thus, a spirit-pacifying ritual was carried out near Miri River, where an altar was placed. The Chinese residents believed the monk chased away the evil spirits and the epidemic subsided. In gratitude, they erected the temple near the river to revere Tua Pek Kong, a god commonly worshipped by Chinese immigrants.
