T Hotel is located here, probably the best accommodation choice in town. Next door are a couple of small Malay restaurants. There's a minimarket called TYH selling basic snacks and drinks and next to it a restaurant with the same name doing nasi kandar-buffet type meals.
Taking a left outside the terminal building will take you into the small town centre. There is a taxi station opposite to the left of the terminal then a row of shophouses where the very basic AZ Motel is located.
You'll then hit a road that continues straight passing the fishing and customs pier on your left before coming to an intersection in the midst of old crumbling shophouses. A couple of metres before this crossroad is a tiny no name Thai-place that probably does the best papaya salad outside Thailand – it's just 3 ringgit a plate and is open from 05:00 to 18:00.
Right across the intersection opposite 7-eleven you'll also find a Chinese restaurant called Popular Sky, and a few steps down the main road is a Maybank, open Mon-Fri, 09:15-16:30 and Sat 09:15-12.15.
Here on Jalan Miri the local bus makes a turn to head back to Kangar. If you ask a local for when the bus leaves they will guide you to wait by the roadside next to the small hairdresser shop. There's also a small coffee shop here, where you can have an ice coffee or tea while you wait.
