    From the main Miri-Pujut road to reach Canada Hill is about 1km. The hill is quite steep approximately 30-45 degrees inclination. 100% uphill. Then the road divides into two, left going to a village and right will lead you to the Museum and Grand Old Lady. You need to walk 500m more but not so taxing. From here you can see Miri 'skyline'. There is no public transport coming to this place. If you have cardiac ailments or joint problems please hire a transport.

Where to stay in Miri

Long considered among the best places in Malaysia to meet others on their travels, Miri has a bounty of budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses. However, do your research before choosing your accommodations, as a lot of the options here cater to local oil rig workers and aren't exactly conducive to multicultural exchange. Many of the budget-friendly guesthouses or hostels cluster conveniently close to amenities such as restaurants and nighttime entertainment.
