Royal Mulu Resort was built on wooden stilts above the ground and linked by wooden walkways, the Resort stands on the banks of the Melinau River, in the midst of a breathtaking natural splendor in exotic Sarawak, Borneo.
To picture Miri when the township came to know oil, we have to project ourselves into a very different past. When the original Shell men arrived, it consisted of 20 scattered houses and a few shops. These included a bazaar, a gambling farm, a pawn shop and an Arab shop. The trade of Miri consisted chiefly of jelutong, brassware, belachan and budu.
