- History of Miri
Miri is home to 28 ethnic groups who co-exist peacefully in a harmonious blend of culture, beliefs and traditions, each with their own distinct language, culture and lifestyle. Our people love sharing their colorful rituals, culinary traditions, unique crafts, music and exciting dance performances with our visitors.
While consisting of many different races, it is hard to distinguish between the races of the general populace in Miri because they all look very similar with perhaps the exception of skin tone.
Sarawak is rather distinctive from the rest of Malaysia in that there is a smaller community of Indians living in the state compared to elsewhere but they are all equally welcome in the community.
