Brunei has long been associated with wealth and oil. In truth, in this country of gleaming whitewashed mosques and golden-tipped minarets, there's little to ... read more...

  1. Brunei's national mosque is always one of Bandar Seri Begawan's most popular tourist attractions. The Omar Ali contains a reflecting pool and a ceremonial royal barge, in addition to its outstanding location on the Waterfront. The sumptuous edifice is reflected in the manmade lagoon. After walking along the Waterfront and seeing Kampong Ayer, pay a visit to the mosque.

    A short distance from the city center sits Brunei's largest mosque. The size of the structure is breathtaking, with 29 golden domes and 52-metre (190-foot) minarets towering into the sky. At any given time, a total of 5,000 people can pray inside. Even his own private elevator belongs to the Sultan. We recommend going during the day for photos and in the evening for a more romantic experience.

    The Brunei Museum is a good place to go if you want to learn more about Brunei. It is located about 4.5 kilometers (2.8 miles) from center Bandar Seri Begawan and features various Bruneian culture displays. Natural history, Islamic art, and colonial effects on the modern-day Sultanate are covered in other sections. The event is free to attend. Any traveler interested in learning more about Brunei should pay a visit to the country's largest museum. It's worth noting that the Brunei Museum is undergoing renovations as of 2018, so call ahead to see if it's open.

  2. Brunei's lush sceneries are without a doubt the crown treasure. If you haven't checked in at least once at the Ulu Temburong National Park - the renowned national park, you haven't fully visited Brunei. This enormous 50,000-hectare area of untouched rainforests runs across the majority of the southern district and is considered one of the world's most diversified ecosystems.

    The Ulu Temburong National Park is located in the easternmost section of Brunei, in the Temburong district. This is a domain belonging to Borneo's longhouse communities and its old culture, as well as a large range of lowland and mountain forests harbouring numerous unique species. From watching gibbons hunt along the river at dawn to listening to the quiet, relaxing sounds of the jungle at dusk, this eye-to-eye encounter with nature is sure to stick with you long after you've reunited with civilisation.

    The Ulu Temburong National Park is only accessible by longboat, and the journey there is included in the Temburong vacation package. Visitors can get the most out of the park thanks to a network of forest trails and plank walkways. The canopy walkway is an attraction for many tourists to Ulu Temburong. The canopy walkway, which is accessible by an hour-long hike from the park headquarters, provides visitors with a rare opportunity to explore the rainforest's rich treetop environment. From the top of the canopy walk, the views are truly breathtaking.

    Location: Temburong District, eastern Brunei

    Highlights: the "Green Jewel of Brunei", Riding a traditional longboat into the virgin rainforest, spending the night at Ulu Ulu National Park Resort, witnessing the sunrise over the rainforest

  3. Kampong Ayer was home to all sorts of residents in the Bruneian empire a century ago, from commoner to aristocratic. Despite the fact that most Bruneians have moved to solid ground as a result of modernity, Kampong Ayer and its 10,000 residents have managed to strike a balance between the old and the new.

    Electricity, WiFi, and cable TV are available in Kampong Ayer, and many people drive their automobiles to work and then park them in a local carpark near the waterfront at night. Water taxis are still a popular means of transportation, and inhabitants enjoy the sense of community that comes with living in a close-knit community over the water, like the ancient Bruneians did.

    Tourists can stay in a homestay or take a self-guided walking tour that starts at the Kampong Ayer Cultural & Tourism Gallery to get a taste of Kampong Ayer living. Visitors can take a one-minute water taxi journey from the city's shoreline for BND0.50 and pick up a tour map at the Gallery's reception. To return to the shore, simply hail a water taxi from the same jetty, or take a tour of the neighboring mangrove woods to see Brunei's riverbank wildlife, including proboscis monkeys, monitor lizards, and crocodiles!

  4. The peacefulness of Tutong is its most attractive feature. With its attractive village surrounded by little hills and gorgeous black water lakes, it is a must-see destination. Because of the release of tannins from the surrounding plants, the waters have a dark tint, almost like tea. Spend some time in town and sample local specialties like Rojak and Pulut Panggang. Every Thursday morning, there is even a bustling market with local handicrafts, cuisine, and fresh fruit.

    Pekan Tutong
    (just Tutong Town in English) serves as the regional center for the Tutong District, which encompasses the territory immediately east of Bandar Seri Begawan on Brunei's northern outskirts. It's home to a number of acclaimed schools and a few decent guesthouses, and it's right on the edge of the South China Sea. The city's golden length of sand at Seri Kenangan, however, is unquestionably the main attraction. This gleaming, broad beach follows the Tutong River's course, and is lined with tempting beach bars and seafood restaurants along the way — it's undoubtedly one of Brunei's best spots for sun, sand, and sea.

    Highlights: Deer Farm, Lamin Warisan, Tasek Merimbun, Seri Kenangan Beach, Wasai Bedanu, ...
    Best time to visit: January and May
  5. While Kuala Belait lacks the tourist attractions of Bandar Seri Begawan and the natural beauty of Ulu Temburong, it has its own allure. Brunei's largest district is Belait. It is half the size of Brunei but only has a sixth of the population, with a population density of only 27 persons per square kilometre.

    The majority of the population lives near Kuala Belait, the coastal district capital, and Seria, the oil town. While the shore has mostly been industrialized, the interior of Belait is still wild and undeveloped. Villages can be found on its high slopes and thick vegetation. The Belait River is the most prominent feature in Belait and Brunei's longest river. It begins in the Labi Forest Reserve and winds its way through the district's interior until emptying into the South China Sea west of Kuala Belait.

    For generations, the Belait River has nourished the people of western Brunei, much like the Brunei River has done for Kampong Ayer in the east. It is important for transportation since it allows locals to bypass the forest by boat. It has also served as a source of drinking water and has been utilized to raise crops.

    Location: Kuala Belait, Belait, Brunei

    Highlights: Silver Jubilee Park, Masjid kampong Pandan, Liang Lumut Recreation Club, Masjid Muhammad Jamalul Alam Mosque, ...

    Little Labi settlement, located in the Sultanate's south-western region, is one of the main destinations for ecotourists visiting Brunei. It's essentially simply a cluster of bamboo dwellings and rain-soaked settlements on the outskirts of the Labi Forest Reserve.

    That means guests will be able to mingle with gibbons, geckos, and a variety of other woodland creatures while searching for gushing waterfalls, wetlands, and undiscovered forest hiking trails. In the village, there are a few good nature lodges, while nearby Terawan and Tarunan have their own guesthouse alternatives.

    The enormous reserves of the Labi Forest stretch from Brunei's south-western lowlands to the borderlands where Malaysia's Gunung Mulu park washes down from the Borneo highlands, and are named after the little settlement on its outskirts.

    It's a wild and untamed region with stunning views of the jungle's peaks, Wasai Kadir's cascading waterfalls, and opportunities to encounter uncommon rainforest critters on the trails. Traditional Iban longhouses, which line the dirt roads near the reserve, are another big draw.

    Location: Labi, Kuala Belait, Brunei

    Highlights: Labi Longhouses, Wasai Wong Kadir, Labi Forest Reserve, ...

    The proposed Bukit Teraja Protected Area extension is a modest piece of land (about 2500 ha), but it contains a lot of biodiversities and has a lot of eco-tourism potential. It is a relatively unspoiled woodland with numerous hiking options that is accessible by road. Mixed Dipterocarp Hill Forest, Peat Swamps, Ridges, Rocks, Waterfalls, and Rivers are only some of the ecosystems found in the area, resulting in a rich flora and fauna.

    With at least 11 waterfalls and numerous hiking opportunities, this area is huge and exceptionally diversified. The trails leading to the Teraja and Belaluk waterfalls are well-worn yet unsigned. Pushing further through the rivers from these trails reveals a plethora of other stunning waterfalls. The adventurous family will have a great time scrambling down rivers, climbing over rocks, and swimming in the many pools.

    The majority of ridges have some sort of hiking or animal track that connects to Bukit Teraja and other regions. About 10 kilometres beyond the tarmac, the Teraja River marks the end of Labi Road. A well-worn route leads upstream to a little waterfall amid a beautiful green forest, crisscrossing the river over tree trunks. The waterfall also serves as a water source for the Teraja longhouse at the start of the trail. Beyond the waterfall, the trail continues to the summit of Bukit Teraja, however, the last section is hazy and at times a scramble.

    Location: Jalan Labi end of Jalan Labi, Seria KB1110 Brunei Darussalam
    Highlights: Sungai Liang Recreational Park, Teraja Longhouse or Labi Homestay, ...
