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.

The Canada Hill of Miri is famous for the historical discovery of oil on top of a hill in 1901. Named Canada Hill because it was the Canadian engineers who first drilled in this area. Their "golden hair" reflecting the sun could be seen by the town people and was a delight to them. Soon oil was discovered and Miri moved on to great economic success. Great veiws of the South China Sea and the resort city. A nice coffee shop provides a good evening's down time for both the young and old.

Canada Hill is close to the centre of Miri, it is actually in Miri town. There are two reasons to visit Canada Hill, to see the Grand Old Lady oil well (Miri-1) which was Malaysia's first oil well dating back to 1910, and see the fabulous view of Miri and the South China Sea.

Good for a 15 minute stop for photos and to see a bit of Malaysia's Oil and Gas History (they have built a replica of the original oil rig, and have many plaques explaining the importance of the well).

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.
