In the morning we left Bintulu by bus, heading for Miri.
Some 30 km from Miri is a small NP located called Lambhir Hills. Just have to inform the bus driver and he made a short stop to let us out, and other tourists letting hop on the bus.

The second part of their history that is dying is the traditional Longhouse. The two main tribes of Borneo, the Iban and the Kayan lived in long wooden houses built on raised wooden poles. As many as 30 families lived together, each with their own room and kitchen but shared the covered veranda or 'Ruai'. This is where everyone met to eat ...
... similar in style to a Christmas tree only made out of more local trees. Attached to which dangling like baubles were lots of trinkets including small denominations of money, cans of coke, sweets, biscuits and (the prize of choice in my eyes) beer. People would take it in turns to dress up in the native dress (differing according to their gender of course) and dance around the tree to music before cutting off a prize from the tree.

Through the Miri Trail Guesthouse website we booked a package for visiting the Mulu Gunung NP.
To catch our early flight to Mulu we decided to stay at the Miri Trail Guesthouse for one night, convenient 'cause it's just right across the Miri Airport.
Staff was young but friendly. Rooms are very basic: just the bed, no tables or chairs or wardrobe. Most rooms don't have a window and the walls are very thin so you bring your earplugs.
Toilets and showers are down the hall, but clean. No breakfast.
Wi-fi is only available in certain rooms (signal is not strong).
For just one night it was fine for us.
For visiting the city centre you'll have get a cab (we picked one at the airport).
