    Miri Heritage Centre: Buying Local Craft

    by mansionion Updated Oct 22, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sarawak's crafts

    A one stop centre selling local handicrafts. Located in the heart of Miri town, it houses the local native handicraft stalls. You can also witness live demonstration on hands weaving, bend-work, batik painting and many more as well as cultural performance on special occasion. At the same time, you can purchase some of these local native handicrafts to be taken home as souvenirs.

    What to buy: Local handicratfs (pua, vases, batik etc) or just simple Miri/Sarawak inspired t-shirts.

    What to pay: Reasonably priced but I was told by my freinds that I'll get better bargain in Kuching for all those handicrafts.

    Miri Heritage Centre

    .

    What to buy: I have to admit there's nothing that 'A must buy' from Miri except for handicrafts. We have a place called Miri Herritage Centre that offers a wide variety of local handicrafts.

    What to pay: Depends on the handicrafts as some are cheap some are very expensive. A cloth known as Pua Kumbu can cost about RM500-RM700.. the original one.. hand made.
