VVIPs greeting visitors to Miri at the airport.
My backpacker guesthouse at Dillenia.
Miri street scene.
Today I took Air Asia''s first ever flight to Miri (Sarawak). This was my first flight with Air Asia, and I must admit I was quite impressed with its service. The meals were reasonably priced much to the delight of the passengers who booked them online (served first).
Now comes the surprising part. On arrival at Miri, we were greeted by big shots and a lot of photographers.
Another surprise is that Miri is full of cafes, eating places and hotels.
I stayed at a backpacker place called Dillenia (RM 30 for a dorm bed) with free breakfast and internet. The only downside is that it has no attached bathroom and toilet. But the owner is nice and friendly.
