There are 2 bus terminals in Miri.
There is one in Jalan Padang, adjacent to the Visitors' Information Centre, and this serves the local Miri network. Bus services to Sungei Tujuh (immigration point between Malaysia and Brunei) starts from the 1st bus terminal. At Sungei Tujuh, you will change to a Brunei bus which will proceed to Kuala Belait, Seria, and Bandar Seri Begawan in Brunei. The bus service is operated by the Miri-Belait Bus Company.
The 2nd one, the Outstation Bus Terminal is located at Pujut Corner, off the Miri-Pujut Road. Buses to Niah, Lambir Hills National Park, Bintulu, Sibu, Sarikei and Kuching depart from here.

Miri has a generally good bus transportation system. Unfortunately, there is no printed time schedule for the bus routes (which is truly inconvienent). In general, one just estimates that there is a bus every 15-30 minutes, depending on the districts/suburbs.
Most of the buses are air-conditioned, although sometimes, it might not work very well. One can pay for the bus fare on board of the busses from the ticket conductor. You just have to tell them where you're going and they will tell you how much you have to pay. Make sure you have enough coins or change.
The main city bus station is near the vicinity of Wisma Pelita and Park Hotel. The buses usually are numbered and will have the end destination on it. If you're still unsure or confused, ask anyone there - the local Mirians are friendly and helpful to tourists, and they know quite well which bus goes to where.

The Miri modern airport is well served with flights to many domestic and international destinations. There are 2 major airlines which service Sarawak and they are the national carrier MAS, and a low-cost airline called Air Asia.
Flight flies direct from Kuala Lumpur (2.5 hours) or from Johore Baru (just across the border from Singapore and cheaper because it is a domestic flight), and from Kota Kinabalu in Sabah. Airport tax is charged upon departure and costs RM5 for domestic flights and RM40 for international flights. These are usually included in the ticket prices.
Please refer to the MAS and Air Asia websites for current schedules, fares and booking details.

Provided the lack of roads in Mulu National Park, rivers are the main ways of communication. skilful drivers will take you to in small canoes to all the places of interest.
Beware of the fact that, if you travel during the dry season and the water level of the river is not very high, you may have to get off the boat and push it against the flow.

If you have limited time, the only choice for reaching Mulu is by plane.
There is a small airport not far from the Mulu Royal Resort. All flights are operated by small jets and may be cancelled for bad weather reasons.

I flew into Miri from Johor Bahru on Air Asia. This was convenient for me because I was coming from Singapore and the fare was less than 100 ringgit. They have promotions from time to time and mid-week seems to be the time to get the cheapest fares. It's definitely a no frills airline but I never had a problem with them. They fly into Miri three times daily from Kuala Lumpur and once every Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Friday from Johor Bahru.
Once at the airport, there are official taxis to the city proper. You state your destination at the desk by the kerb and they give you a voucher. It's all fairly simple and user-friendly.

If I'm doing a lot of short trips in one day or doing a bit of sightseeing, I like to get a private driver. I found this fellow to be decent and helpful. He did airport transfers for less than the official price (14 ringgit) and got up at 5:30am to take me to the bus stop so that I could go to Brunei (7 ringgit). He was also very knowledgable about the area and gave me plenty of touring options without being pushy. He was very talkative and obviously enjoyed guiding tourists around. The best part probably was that he knew where to find the cheapest of everything - unbelievable. For once I was able to outdo the backpackers in the hostel common room as everyone exchanged stories!

If you want to go to Miri from Brunei , you just need your own car or just use buses. For bus, you use the bus that stated Brunei to Miri bus. It just takes for 3 hours to reach they. You can use plane and it take for few minutes to reach there ( for about 2 minutes).
i suggest you should travel by car or bus because you can see a lot such many types of local houses and many more.
