Canada Hill

Canada Hill is a stretch of hill that runs along Miri from North East to South West, and goes from Tanjong Lobang cliffs to Luak to Pujut Corner. The Grand Old Lady - Miri's first oil well, now an official landmark and historical site - was built on top of it. The Petroleum Museum is located right next to the oil well. Canada Hill can be considered a first experience of the rainforest, to anyone who haven't experience it. It is easily accessible from Miri by within walking distance
