One day trip @ Miri

Petrosains – Dino Trek comes to Miri, Sarawak
During my stay at Miri, I went to the Miri Petroleum Museum. Just inside the museum, there is an exhibition going on, and is called the DinoTreck. Admission for adults is RM5. Inside the exhibition, I’m a little bit disappointed. My friend told me that there is actually a real dinosaur skull, when I go….there is just Animatronics Dinosaurs left., and a bunch of Dino Game for kids.

For the Petroleum Museum, Miri is a division which rich with petrol. Inside the museum it clearly display and explain how the petrol is drill from the earth, and how to process it, and the type of drill that use to get the petrol.

Miri Fan Garden
I’ve been to Miri for so many time, but this is the first time I’ve step into the Fan Garden. This park is located at the heart of Miri town, and the shape of the park looks just like a fan, so I guess that’s why she earn the name Miri City Fan. What make this garden so unique is it has a combination of several garden together. And below is a series of photos I’ve shoot. My dear readers, enjoy the photos :)

Miri Public Park – Taman Awam Miri
Not really sure the exact name of this park. Last time I came was at night time, this time I’ve got the change to see the different view on this beautiful park. It has a very long suspension bridge which connects one end of the park to another end.

On the very top of the tower, you can view the entire park. I stand at the edge of the tower to take some shoot, but the swallow which live at the top flew pass me in a very fast speed. It’s look like they want to chase me and the other visitor away from the tower.
