"The Oil Town" Shopping Complex is a retail and shopping mall located right next to Dynasty Hotel. It is the second fully air-conditioned shopping mall complex in Miri, after Pelita Tunku.
Located at Jalan Chia Tze Chin, directly in front of Chung Hua Primary School and a short walk from St. Josephs' Primary School, it is the defacto hangout spot for these students. Hungry Horse, a fast food restaurant located within the mall was one popular food & drink break spot for the students of these schools back then.
This complex eventually closed down by the mid 1990s due to a variety of reasons, mostly due to waning foot traffic and a preference of Mirians to shop at whichever competitive newer malls that had just sprung up. The building facade had since been renovated into a different design with green-tinted glass windows and now houses the Ranhill Woleyparsons Sdn. Bhd. offices.
