Miri is a coastal city located on the lush island of Borneo in northern Sarawak, Malaysia. The city occupies a very special place in the history of Malaysia’s booming oil industry – it was at Miri that Malaysian oil was first struck in 1910. Miri is also the main gateway for the Loagan Bunut National Park, Lambir National Park and the Niah Caves at the Niah Caves National Park, and it is renowned for its exotic coral reefs. At Miri, the oil industry meets an amazingly rich environment that's ripe with a high level of biodiversity. The city is within easy reach of national parks, rivers and mountain streams, and some of the best scuba diving in Borneo.
