Cave Nature / Park
Delve into the alien world of Mulu Caves, a network of immense caverns within a World Heritage-listed national park. Several show caves feature walking access and house thousands of bats. Other caverns offer more of a challenge, with sections only accessible by strenuous climbing, swimming, or underground rafting. One of the more difficult to reach is the world's largest known natural chamber. At 700 m (2,300 ft) long, 396 m (1,299 ft) wide, and at least 70 m (230 ft) high, this cavern is so large that it could house around 40 jumbo jets without overlapping their wings. You can arrange for your visit directly with the park staff or through a private operator.

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.
