MIRI, SARAWAK’S SECOND LARGEST CITY
Miri is a city in northern Sarawak, Malaysian state on the island of Borneo. It is the birthplace of Malaysia’s petroleum industry, which remains the major industry of this city. With a population around 300,000 people, Miri has grown phenomenally since oil was first discovered in the early 1900s. Besides being a Resort City, Miri is located near to the Sultanate of Brunei and the Malaysian state of Sabah which has a significant number of expatriate communities for which Jazz deemed to be a suitable music genre for these communities.
Often called the northern gateway to Sarawak, Miri is a very important tourist attraction for Sarawak. The city is surrounded by four world class national parks which are Gunung Mulu National Park (UNESCO World Heritage Site, home to the world’s largest caves), Niah National Park (Historical and archeological site), Lambir Hills National Park (diverse species of flora and fauna) and Loagan Bunut National Park (largest natural lake).
