City overview

Bandar Seri Begawan (sometimes referred to as just “BSB”) is the capital city of Brunei, a tiny country located in the south-eastern region of Asia, on the Island of Borneo. Though small, there are several interesting things to see and do in BSB. Start with the Brunei Museum to get a better understanding of the country, culture and history.

Istana Nurul Iman (Palace of the Light of the Faith), is the official residence of the Sultan of Brunei. At two million square feet it’s one of the largest palaces in the world and includes 1788 rooms (257 of which are bathrooms). The opulent residence is only open to the public three days a year at the end of Ramadan but those wanting to catch a glimpse of the exterior can do so via water taxi.

Tasek Recreational Park is a short 15 minute walk from the centre of BSB and an ideal place to spend some time outdoors. The lush forest reserve has walking trails, picnic areas, and a waterfall. If you’re lucky you may even spot a proboscis monkey, a species of monkey that is only found on the island of Borneo.

A visit to Kampong Ayer is a totally unique experience to be had in BSB. The water village is home to a population of about 30,000 people and is the largest village of its kind in the world. The village (actually 28 contiguous stilt villages), consists of schools, medical clinics, a fire stations, and homes all sitting on stilts above the water. A water taxi is a great way to tour the area. Before or after a look at the village, head to the Kampung Ayer Cultural & Tourism Gallery to get more information about the area.
