Miri /ˈmɪər/ is a city in northern Sarawak, Malaysia, on the island of Borneo. It is the second largest city in Sarawak, with a population of about 360,000,[3] and located in close proximity to Brunei. It is the government administrative centre of Miri District in Miri Division. Miri is the birthplace of Sarawak's and Malaysia's petroleum industry, which remains the major industry of the city.

The city's other major industries include processed timber, oil palm production, and tourism. Miri is the main tourist gateway for Gunung Mulu National Park, Loagan Bunut National Park, Lambir National Park, Niah National Park and Miri-Sibuti Coral Reef National Park. The world famous Gunung Mulu National Park with its Sarawak Chamber, a half an hour flight from the city, is one of the favourite eco-tourism destinations. Miri has lately become known for its exotic coral reefs.[4][5]

History[edit]

The earliest evidence of human population in the area dates back to 35,000 BC from the nearby Niah Caves.[6]

Oil Discovery[edit]

The first oil well (the Grand Old Lady) was drilled by Shell in 1910, and is now a state monument and one of Miri's tourist attractions. Shell also built Malaysia's first oil refinery in Lutong, a suburb of Miri, in 1914.

World War II[edit]

Realizing that war was imminent, the Brooke government, under Sir Charles Vyner Brooke, conducted preliminary work to establish airstrips at selected locations throughout the country. These airstrips would be located at Kuching, Oya, Mukah, Bintulu, and Miri.[7]

With no air or sea forces stationed in or around Sarawak, the British government encouraged the Brooke regime to adopt a "scorched earth policy" in the event of a Japanese attack. Later, schemes were developed to destroy the oil installations at Miri and Lutong.[8] The Brooke government learned of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor (on 7 December 1941) and quickly ordered the total destruction of the oil fields and airfields at Miri and Seria. Orders for the demolition of the refinery at Lutong and the oil wells reached the officer commanding at Miri on the morning of 8 December, and by that evening, the task was completed. The garrison, a company of the 2/15 Punjab Regiment, then left for Kuching by sea on 14 December.[7] The Japanese captured the city on 17 December.[9]

On 19 December 1941, a Dutch flying boat from Tarakan Island attacked the Japanese destroyer Shinonome, (Cdr. Hiroshi Sasagawa) of 1,950 tons off Miri; the ship was sunk along with her entire crew of 228.[10] Another flying boat damaged a transport ship.

Recent History[edit]

Miri City seen from satellite

During the 1960s, vast oil reserves were discovered just offshore northeast of the city. Miri has grown phenomenally since oil was first discovered in the early 1900s, burgeoning into the business, commercial and educational centre it is today.[11]

The Sarawak state government approved the then Miri Municipal Council's application for Miri to be elevated to a city and concurrently the Council to be upgraded as the Miri City Council on 20 May 2004. The federal government approved its application on 16 March 2005. The Yang di-Pertua Negeri (ceremonial head of state) of Sarawak issued an order on 12 May 2005 for the establishment of the Miri City Council. The King of Malaysia, Seri Paduka Baginda Yang Di-Pertuan Agong XII issued the instrument for conferment of city status of name Miri City Council on Miri Municipal Council, with full jurisdiction on Miri City on 13 May 2005. The appointments of the mayor, deputy mayor and city councillors of the Miri City Council was published in the Sarawak Government Gazette on 19 May 2005.

On 20 May 2005, the official proclamation of Miri as a City and appointment of Cr. Dato Wee Han Wen as first Mayor of Miri City Council were made at Miri. This was then followed by a celebration and 20 May is now celebrated each year as Miri City Day. Miri is the ninth city[clarification needed], and its local authority the tenth city council in Malaysia.

Demographics[edit]

Miri's population consists of Iban, Chinese, Malay (consists of original Malay, adopted of Jati Miriek, Daleik and Bakong people[12]), Kedayan, Berawan, Lun Bawang/Lun Dayeh, Melanau, Kayan, Kenyah, Kelabit, Bidayuh, Penan, Indian, a handful of Eurasians and other indigenous groups .

Economy[edit]

Sarawak Shell Berhad

Miri mainly relies on its oil and gas industry, which contributes significantly to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of Sarawak.[citation needed] Sarawak Shell Berhad and Petronas Carigali have their headquarters based in Miri. The city is also home to numerous local and multinational oil and gas companies, including Nippon Oil, Schlumberger, Baker Hughes, Halliburton, Technip, Ranhill WorleyParsons and Petra Resources and many others. The oil and gas industry not only infuses money into the economy, but also brings in expatriates from various countries.

Tourism is another important focus of the economy. Miri has a diverse ecology and a myriad of flora and fauna species. Four national parks and a marine national park are all located near Miri. Thus, it is often seen as a hub for ecotourism and a draw for nature enthusiasts.

The oil palm business is also a major industry in Miri, with vast oil palm plantation estates dotting the outskirts of Miri.

Many shipbuilding companies have also set up major shipyards in Miri, especially in the Kuala Baram industrial area along the mighty Baram river.

Miri is also a shopping destination for the neighbouring country of Brunei Darussalam,[16] as well as nearby smaller towns like Bintulu and Limbang.

Transportation[edit]

Miri is accessible by road from Bandar Seri Begawan (Brunei) and all major cities and towns in Sarawak and Sabah by the Pan Borneo Highway.

Miri Airport (IATA: MYY, ICAO: WBGR) has the capacity to handle two million passengers annually. It is one of Malaysia's top five busiest airports. The airport, located close to the border of Brunei Darussalam, is an important gateway to the Northern Region of Sarawak and serves as a hub for interior air services. Miri Airport is the third busiest airport in Malaysia, in terms of aircraft movements and the fifth busiest in terms of passengers handled.[17] Miri Airport receives flights from domestic destinations like Kuala Lumpur, Johor Bahru, Penang, Kuala Terengganu, Kota Kinabalu, Labuan, Kuching and many other towns throughout Sarawak. It also has direct international air link to Singapore via AirAsia and Manila via AirAsia Zest.[18] Miri Airport is a major hub for the regional airline, MASwings to provide connecting flights to isolated communities in the interior. MASwings has its head office at Jalan Airport in Miri.[19]

Miri Port Authority is an important feeder port that links Sarawak's Northern Region's trade to the rest of the world. It is a key player in the development of trade for not only Sarawak's economy but also Malaysia as a whole.

Tourism[edit]

Miri is often called the northern gateway to Sarawak and is one of the state's most important tourist attractions. It is surrounded by five world-class national parks: Mount Mulu, Niah, Lambir Hills, Loagan Bunut and Miri-Sibuti Coral Reef National Park.

National Parks[edit]

Gunung Mulu National Park

The Gunung Mulu National Park is a certified UNESCO World Heritage Site and boasts the world's largest natural cave chamber, the Sarawak Chamber. The National Park encompasses caves and karst formations in a mountainous equatorial rainforest setting. The park is famous for its caves and the expeditions that have been mounted to explore them and their surrounding rainforest, most notably the Royal Geographical Society Expedition of 1977–1978, which saw over 100 scientists in the field for 15 months. This initiated a series of over 20 expeditions now drawn together as the Mulu Caves Project. The national park is named after Mount Mulu, the second highest mountain in Sarawak.

Niah National Park

Niah Caves in Niah National Park is an important archaeological and historical site, as one of the oldest human remains in Southeast Asia was found here. The cave is an important prehistorical site where human remains dating to 40,000 years have been found.[3] This is the oldest recorded human settlement in east Malaysia. The caves are also well known for the birds' nest (Swiftlet) industry. It is a popular tourist destination in Sarawak.

Lambir Hills National Park

Lambir Hills National Park is located 30 kilometres (19 mi) south of Miri It contains very diverse species of flora and fauna and is ranked as the 12th mega-biodiverse site in the world. The park has Sarawak's largest natural lake. There is also the recently gazetted Miri-Sibuti Marine National Park, which has coral reefs and diverse marine life.[20]

Loagan Bunut National Park

Loagan Bunut National Park is a national park located 130 km from Miri, Sarawak, Malaysia, on the Borneo island. The park was named after the Loagan Bunut lake nearby, which is connected to Sungai Bunut (sungai is Malay for river), Sungai Baram and Sungai Tinjar. This park occupies a space of 100 km2 (39 sq mi) and is well known for its rich biodiversity and unique aquatic ecosystem.[21] The national park was gazetted on January 1, 1990 and it was opened to public on August 29, 1991.

Miri-Sibuti Coral Reef National Park

The Miri-Sibuti Coral Reef National Park in the clear waters off Miri's coast are an exciting and accessible diving destination. It is one of Malaysia’s most recently discovered diving locations and the largest offshore national park created in the state of Sarawak.[22] The marine national park covering an area of 186,930ha, have more than 28 reefs between Miri and Sibuti area. The depths ranging from 7 to 30 metres has an average visibility of 10 to 30 metres. There are also some interesting wreck dives. Water temperature at the start of the season is normally 26 to 27 °C but can be as low as 23 °C at depth, as the North-East monsoon still brings in cold water from the Northern Pacific. By May the water temperature reaches the more normal 29 to 30 °C. The best time to dive is from late March through November each year. The diversity and accessibility of corals and other marine life on the reefs is amongst the best in the region.[23][24] Popular diving sites in Miri includes:

  • Luconia Area
  • Anemone Garden
  • Grouper Patch Reef
  • Atago Maru Wreck
  • Seafan Garden
