Tourist Guide in BSB

by stan_ang

Hi, I am planning to have a 1 day trip to Bendar Seri Bagawan. Where can I look for local tourist guide that can show us around the beautiful sites? And do you have any suggested hotels that we can stay, that are not very expensive, but safe, clean, has aircon, and water heater?

We stayed at the Trader's Inn a couple of years ago. I think it was the least expensive hotel in BSB.

Certainly nothing special - a 15 minute walk into the centre of BSB. We were on an organized tour - mostly to Sabah State, but spent a few days in BSB getting over the jetlag.

Tourism in Brunei is rather underdeveloped and hopefully with a couple more years of practice they are getting better at it. The front desk should be able to hook you up with a guide, and they did have a tour desk at the airport so tours could be booked there (mostly around town - mosques, Kampong Ayer, National Museum, etc.). Tembourong National Park is a full day trip, but worth it if you are interested in what the rest of Borneo looked like before the heavy duty lumbering and palm oil plantations took over.

We stayed at the Traders Inn also. As said, nothing fancy, breakfast plain, but ok, it was included in our price. It was the most reasonably priced I could find at the time, and it had a free shuttle to and from the city centre. Once in the city, you can walk to the main sights.http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/fa47c/16d43f/
There will be one mosque that isn't walkable, the shuttle went past it on the way in.
Bargain with a water taxi to see the floating village, much cheaper than a tour.
Have a good time!

As you may know, Brunei has the highest per capita income in all of Asia (Petrol Money) so does not have to resort to tourist dollars. Look through the Brunei pages at VT for hints on hotels. Eating is fairly inexpensive. the sights are al within a small area, with a taxi land or water to outlying mosques. Kampong Ayer is a must (fairly unique in the world) as are the two mosques (very reminiscent of cordoba the second one).there is enough to keep you occupied for the day you are there, dont expect to see a whole heap of tourists!

We stayed in the Terrace Hotel which did great food and had a nice pool. It was also a good location for exploring some of BSB's sights on foot. We walked to Royal Regalia Museum, the mosque, the water village, the market, the Chinese temple, the 12 roofed house (quite a long walk - that one0 and St Andrew's Church. I don't konw any tour agencies, but I would recommend that hotel.

I met with a couple of the local VT'ers in BSB. They were wonderfully kind. One of them does work as a tour guide so you could always contact Esjay (http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/b0891/) for reasonable tour possibilities.

Travel Tips for Bandar Seri Begawan

The Center of Brunei

by DSwede

Do all roads lead to Bandar Seri Begawan? I'm doubtful that they do, however all mileage markers are measured from the capital city's cross roads.

The Clock Tower shown here in the central Bandar district is mile marker "0" for all road networks leading away from the city.

In the background of the photo is the Haji Sir Muda Omar Ali Saifuddein Park.

Compliments of VT'er "SangAji", he clarified that there is another clock tower at Kuala Belait located next to the taxi stand and bus stop that represent mile zero from the opposite end ie. about 67 miles away

Weather Conditions

by Rice_Paper

Normal temperature range between 24ºC in the night to 32ºC during day. Most of the rain takes place from October through March. Rains can be heavy and sudden. The country experiences humidity throughout the year.

You can visit this part of the world anytime of the year except rainy season and the month of Ramadan when most of the Muslims go on fast.

Jame`Asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque

by frankcanfly

`A symbol of Islam`s firm hold in the country`

This is the interior of the male prayer hall. You must hide your camera to capture a photo. The hall can accommodate up to 3,500 worshippers. That`s 24 carat gold you`re looking at.

Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah & his birthday

by victorwkf

Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah is the current Sultan (king) of Brunei. Essentially, Brunei is still a kingdom where the Sultan (king) still holds the power. In fact, Sultan Bolkiah has been the Sultan since the 1960s and one of the longest rulers in the world. He used to be the richest man in the world, and still is one of the richest men in the world. You will know more about Sultan Bolkiah if you visit the Royal Regalia Museum at Bandar Seri Begawan, where there are lots of photos and information about him and his family.

The birthday of the Sultan is on 15th July. If you are at Bandar Seri Begawan during this period, you will see lots of banners and beautiful lights along the streets celebrating his birthday (see photos). During the day itself, there will be grand celebrations at Bandar Seri Begawan and the week following that is lined with various activities, including carnivals and roadside shops along many roads in Bandar Seri Begawan (these roads will be closed to traffic).

Another country which I have visited where the Sultan still holds power is Oman (Sultan Qaboos in this case). Please visit my VT Oman pages if you are interested.

No shoes in the house

by BorneoGrrl

When you enter someone's house, chances are you will have to take off your shoes. It's a normal custom in Asia and if you're not used to it, you have to start practicing because should you just walk into someone's house with your shoes on, it's considered rude and unclean.
