walking tour & sleeping at the airport

by jemc1984

hi

i will be in brunei for a very short time more or less 5 hrs i'll be comming in from kota kinabalu by plane i just want to ask if its possible to go see some major sites in bendar seri begawan by mainly walking & taking a bus from time to time. lastly i would like to know if its possible to stay in the airport for the night while waiting for my flight back home or is there any airport hotel which has a decent rate thanks for the help

Re: walking tour & sleeping at the airport

5 hrs is too short to venture out, however depending on your flight sked, maybe take advantage of the free city tour for transit passengers.

there are transit rooms for hire, located downstairs of the departure hall, not sure about rates.

Hi jem

I hope you get this before you leave....I have just returned from here, and you can take short tours from the airport to fill in time ...I didnt go but friends did and they tell me its good. As for nstaying in the airport.....it is a small airport with very basic conditions , so if you sleep it will be on very uncomfortable chairs.....there is very little food available as well. Un fortunately I can say about motels etc..there are transient rooms below apparently...my advice is just be cautious....enjoy the trip.

Travel Tips for Bandar Seri Begawan

Brunei Airport

by stevemt

The airport is DEAD. There is virtually nothing to do here at all.

There is an internet cafe, and 2 othere cafe's plus a few shops. nothing else. At night it is a ghost town.

You can sleep though, there seats have no armrests between them and are quite comftable.

Kampong Ayer

by frankcanfly

Not actually a tourist accomodation, this is a collection of 28 water villages built over the water on stilts. It houses 30,000 people and has been around for more than 500 years.

It is a curious mix of history and modern conveniences.

Water Taxi

by frankcanfly

The water taxis down on the waterfront are a great way to see the town, or to get across to Kampong Ayer. Try to choose an older driver though, the young ones `hotrod` it a little too much sometimes.....

How to Act Decent in a Muslim Nation

by tHe_boRNEaN

Being a Muslim nation, Brunei appreciates travellers who appreciate the customs of Islam. Where you may have been unnoticed wearing a bikini, people will pass you off as gross and indecent in Brunei. So please, research on clothing before your trip. While strolling in the streets, its OK for men to wear short-sleeved shirts and trousers, but it is advisable for ladies to wear long trousers. In mosques, ladies must cover their legs and arrms, while men are alright with short sleeved shirts and long trousers. Remember-no shoes allowed in a mosque, and never touch the al-Koran. At the beach, try to avoid wearing bikinis and cover up as much as is possible ( I think a one-piece swimsuit should be OK). Men have not much problems. Muslims shake hands lightly and bring their hands to their chest. And by the way, while in a mosque, don't point the soles of your feet at others, and don't walk in front of people in prayer as this is a serious offence.

Easy local phrases in Brunei

by SLLiew

Malay or Bahasa Melayu is the official language of Brunei and spoken by all.

Although in most places, you can get away with English, learning and using the following simple Malay phrases is fun and great way to get to know the local Bruneians better.

The Malay spoken in Brunei is similar to that spoken in Malaysia and fairly close to Jakarta and Indonesia.

"Selamat Pagi" = Good morning
"Selamat Petang" = Good afternoon
"Selamat Malam" = Good night
"Selamat Tinggal" = Good bye (if you are leaving the place)
"Selamat Jalan" = Good bye (to others who are leaving the place)

"Terima kasih"=Thank you
"Sama sama"= You are welcome (response to Terima kasih)

"Di mana tandas" = Where is the toilet
"Di mana teksi" = Where is the taxi
"Di mana hotel" = Where is the hotel

"Berapa"= How much
"Mahal"= Expensive
