Canada Hill Tours

For the best views of Miri, head to Canada Hill (or Bukit Telaga Minyak), a limestone ridge where you’ll find Malaysia’s first ever oil well, a petroleum museum, plus sweeping views of the city and beyond.

Sitting atop Canada Hill, and affectionately referred to as The Grand Old Lady, the site of the country’s earliest oil well is now a national monument and historic landmark. This 30-meter-tall monument was built by Shell and marks the origins of the petroleum industry in Malaysia and the subsequent modernization of Miri. The Petroleum Museum is located just next to the monument and traces the development of the industry since oil was first struck here back in 1910.

If you like walking, it’s a pleasant two-kilometer trek up to the top of Canada Hill. Alternatively, join a half-day sightseeing tour of Miri – taking in the city’s other sights as you go – and transport will be provided.

Insider’s Tip: Due to its position above the city, one of the most scenic times to visit Canada Hill is at sunset.

Practical Info

The Petroleum Museum opens daily from 9am-4pm, except on Mondays and public holidays. If not walking or arriving as part of an organized tour, you can reach Canada Hill by hailing a taxi from Jalan Setia Raja.
