Miri Trip

This is my first time to visit this oil city, Miri. Before I come here, I didn't expect much from this trip. I am just expecting it to be a city get away trip. The trip covers the place of interest, food & nature walk. It is really amaze to discover that such a small city has a very well mainteince public park and has quite a number of good food stalls. Most tourist will just stop by Miri airport to go to Gua Mulu (the largest cave in the world). From Miri, there is flight from MAS Wings to go to Mulu. Expect to see many expatriate here as there is two multinational oil company-Shell & Petronas residing in Miri.
