The Miri Airport VOR station is a big airport equipment structure that can be seen along Miri-Bintulu Road near the end of the Miri Airport Runway. The VOR station is an important airport instrument for assistance guiding airplanes coming in to the airport, and due to the proximity of the runway to the road this station can be seen when driving past that area on the way to or back from Taman Tunku or Lambir, and is a recognizable landmark that can't be missed when passing through.
Though this area is not accessible and totally off limits to people, there is a small grassy knoll by the side of the road about a hundred meters east along this area near a bus stop that makes a suitable spot for plane spotting.
The Civic Center at moment of completion.
Completed in the late 1980s, Miri Civic Center functions as an exhibition foyer and amphitheater on the ground floor, holds the Miri Public Library on the second floor, and is a multi-purpose hall for various social functions such as wedding parties, concerts, large conferences etc. The seating capacity allows up to a thousand dining tables.
Its design is reminiscent of an oil-rig platform when view from ground level, with four huge pillars supporting the upper floors rising from water features at the base. When viewed directly from from the air, it has a shape of an octagonal star. The pillars are white in color and the upper floors are covered in blue-tinted glass windows. It makes for a recognizable landmark near the City Fan.
The Civic Center connects to the first phase of the City Fan, a walkway that connects to the open air amphitheater at the center of Miri City Fan.
