This is situated on Canada Hill. The museum was closed when we went but the views from the hill are beautiful, specially the sunset. Must visit if your are in Miri.

Leisure Roundabout Miri. It's my 2nd time visiting Miri with my mother. The 1st time was November 2019, when she could still walk. However, this time she is on wheelchair, but we still managed to come again.

Although Miri is not my hometown and many said that Miri has got nothing to do. But in my point of view and opinion, I feel that Miri is really a peaceful, quiet and relaxing place.

I will definitely be planning again soon with my family.

📌The Grand Old Lady

During our last trip to Miri, Michelle and I were often recommended to visit Canada Hill, a limestone ridge with an amazing view of Miri City. Directly being in sight, overlooking our window from Pullman Miri Waterfront, one could hike up Canada Hill, or take a Grab up.

-enjoy amazing views of Miri City from Canada Hill. Watch the city light up as the skies darken.
-visit the 'Grand Old Lady', also known as Well No.1 as it was the first oil well in the country.
-stroll through the Petroleum Science Museum, which educates on the prominence of the oil and gas industry in Miri's earlier days

We arrived late at Canada Hill, when it was nearly dark. It's a lovely place, with a lovely view.

Grand old lady is Miri City viewpoint overlooking the city and South China Sea. You can even see a oil rig from the viewpoint. There is also a petroleum museum and monument. Serene view and suitable for a short visit.
