Solo / Group
Brunei is a wonderful place for solo and group travellers alike, thanks to the leisurely pace of life, the sultanate’s fascinating history and the best of nature’s treasures.
There is plenty to keep your family entertained during your visit to Brunei! Roam around Borneo’s biggest amusement park, with a kid-friendly playground and rides for all ages. Take a trip down to Seria in Belait District for some good edutainment and learn about the discovery of oil and gas through fun activities!
Only have mere hours to spend in Brunei? No problem! Some of the country’s best attractions are found right in the capital, a short 15-minutes car ride from the airport, ensuring that you won’t miss out on some of the best Brunei has to offer.
If you need to narrow down the items on your itinerary, here a couple of must-visit, quintessentially Bruneian places that you can't leave out during your stay here!
Known to some as the ‘Venice of the East’, Kampong Ayer is the world’s largest settlement on stilts. This floating village is home to some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet, who might just open their doors to you and insist you come in and share a hearty home-cooked meal. To get across the river, you’ll need to flag down a water taxi for an average of BND1 per person. But don’t worry, the boat drivers are usually nearby, ready to bring people around the waterways.
Ulu Temburong National Park
Ulu Temburong National Park is home to centuries-old evergreen that has seen the passing of time through the ages. In fact, 80% of Brunei is pure rainforest and home to numerous kinds of wildlife such as the elusive hornbill and over 400 kinds of butterflies. If you’re looking for views for days, the 60m high canopy walk is right up your alley. For more information on the park, click here!
As Borneo’s largest amusement park, Jerudong Park features all kinds of rides for all ages. Roam freely through beautifully landscaped and kid-friendly playground that the young ones would enjoy. Please refer here for the park’s opening times and entrance fees.
Luagan Lalak Recreation Park
Some people will argue that you can see the best sunsets at the park. Others visit the park to get away from all the hustle and noise from town. With wooden walkways and beautiful sunsets when the weather is right, experience the kind of peace that only nature can bring at the Luagan Lalak Recreation Park. The park sits atop an alluvial freshwater swamp and gives the illusion of mirror-like water and during dry season, the water gives way to reveal a bank of beautiful sedges. This park is as picturesque as it can be so don’t forget to snap some photos while you’re there!
Quaint. Serene. And – did we mention quaint? Tutong Town may not have as many attractions as the other districts but it is a definite obligatory stopover for those on a road trip. Sit at vintage coffee shops that have seen decades pass by and enjoy the view of the majestic Tutong River and mangrove forest on the other side of it while you chow down on delicious fried Kuey Teow and Pulut Panggang (grilled glutinous rice package) . It’s the perfect pitstop on your way!
Located at the banks of Kianggeh river where the waterways are constantly busy with motorboats zooming by, the market features a variety of local vegetables like edible ferns and medicinal herbs. Also on sale are fishermen’s catch of the day as well as ready-cooked local dishes that’ll whet your appetite for that distinct Bruneian flavor! The market is open daily from 8am-5.30pm, with Friday morning being their most bustling time! However most stalls would pack up by noon so we suggest you head there in the morning.
Right on the edge of civilization – where the asphalt meets pristine rainforests – a wooden longhouse stands tall and proud amongst lush greenery. Take a tour around the timber home and venture out through the trails to search of spectacular waterfalls and serene plunge pools.
