Local friends brought us to this place and they used to serve Italian/pasta dishes. But it’s been closed down and left with a drink stall that also sells BBQ food.

If you want to go to Canada Hill, I suggest you go around the evening (5-7pm). The view of the city during sunset to the night is amazing. The view is amazing only in the evening, so do not come during the day before 4pm....More

The Grand Old Lady is a must when you visit Miri. It shows the first oil field in Malaysia which we Sarawakian should be proud of. The view here is stunning and the air is fresh. The muzium is terrible. It is not well maintained....More

Been there on monday, the museum is closed. But view from hill still stunning. Seen rubbish thrown everywhere and empty alcohol bottle. It needs a proper maintenance by petronas museum staff.

Woke up early and drove to Canada hill at 6am to catch a glimpse of the beautiful sunrise at 6.33am. Watch out for mosquitoes.

Nothing much going on upon it except to see the Grand Old Lady. However, the best thing was not what's upon in but rather the great view of Miri City from it.

Worthwhile for a short visit. Fabulous view of Miri and the sea from top of the hill. The Old Lady oil well is here too outside the Petroleum Museum. Interesting story of oil discovery and extraction then refining in Sarawak, Malaysia. The kids will enjoy...More
