History of Miri
At the time of the spudding in of Well No.1, Miri was just a small rural kampong (village). Pre World War II, the population was recorded to be only about 10,000. Like most cities, Miri has a rich history. What started out as a small settlement of fishing village, Miri is now a modern city, some one hundred years later.
Here are very detailed information on the growth and development of what we now call the Miri Resort City.
