Miri is a city on the coast of northeastern Sarawak near the the Sultanate of Brunei. Miri has about 280000 inhabitants and is a major centre of the petroleum industry due to the nearby oilfields, the first dscovered in Malaysia. Miri has an airport with direct flights to Kuching, Kota Kinabalu and KL. The city itself is relatively small and does not have too many sights, except for an interesting city centre with some colonial era buildings and some temples. The main reason to come to Miri is that Miri is the gateway to a number of tourist attractions in the area: the national parks of Niah, Mulu and Similajau, Bario and the Kelabit highlands and the nearby Sultanate of Brunei, all easily accessible either by plane or overland.
