by ryokosy

Hi all VT-ers!

I would like to take a trip to Brunei and hope to have some tips.

1) Do you know how much would it cost to take a taxi to Bandar Sri Begawan?

2) If I to rent a car and drive to Brunei , how is the road condition? How much extra will the rental company charges?


Hope to have some enlightenment, thanks alot.

Cheers.

the only ppl who take taxis bet brunei n miri are biz ppl, there are buses on a daily basis. it makes more sense to hire a car, gives you freedom of the road and go anywhere you please, or hitch a ride from someone.

word of warning, sunday 20 june is the last day of school holidays in brunei, and the border will be chock a block with bruneians returning from holidays in miri, and mirians going back to work in brunei.

if you want to visit brunei, suggest you leave miri first thing in the morning, n return monday morning. traffic going into miri will be very light.

let me know if you want a VT meeting.

cheers.

Hi SangAji,

Thanks for the valuable reply.

we are working out a few options here (for backups), tentatively we are to take a guided DAY tour on 20 June, will it be very bad choice?

Btw, can u advise how long does it take fr Miri - Brunei and vice versa.


Thanks again.

Re: Miri to Brunei

miri to kuala belait is only half an hour drive, problem is the border crossing. as i said earlier, it will be end of school holidays and bruneians and mirians will be flocking back and the queue will be long, so start your guided tour trip first thing in the morning ie be at the border by 6am when it opens, so that you have a full day to tour brunei.

from kuala belait to brunei is about 1 hour, passing thru seria, lumut and tutong. stick to the highway n stop by at jerudong park and the empire hotel.

then go into bandar seri begawan thru gadong n kiulap n stop by the mall and jame asr mosque. n take a water village tour n proboscis monkey tour at sungai damuan, past the palace. also drive up to kota batu for the museum. if time permit, go to muara and serasa for the beaches n see ferry terminal to labuan n menumbok in sabah.

on way back to miri, take the old trunk road ie jalan tutong, and go past the palace, bunut and sengkurong, then to lamunin n rejoin highway at telisai. this way you get to see rural brunei ie kampongs.

the trip back to miri should be smooth as no heavy traffic and the border closes at 10pm.

enjoy your trip.

Travel Tips for Miri

Money changing

by BorneoGrrl

If you're here for the first time, it is advisable for you to buy your ringgits or RM from the banks because you know you'll get a fair rate. However, there are a couple of money changes in town which can also give you a slightly better rate. These money changers are more keen on USD and Brunei dollars, so should you have either, you won't have a problem. The worst places to exchange money is the hotels and the airport because the exchange rate will be low

Bekenu beach NO resort

by Lexpat

A beach not only beautiful but where you may very well be the only one in the water.
Bekenu is a village located at about 50' drive from Miri. Just before the village, a road to the right will take you to very scenic beaches, easy to access and just waiting for you to be discoverred.
Take everything with you because there is almost nothing there. Though you may buy fruits and local food at the local village market.
Should you fancy the experience, ask a local fisherman to take you for a ride along the coastline. Cheap if you bargain.
For back packers, YES you may consider camping on site.
To get there, you may arrange a taxi from Miri to drop you and pick you up.

Affordable & yummy seafood

by BorneoGrrl about New Tanjung Seafood Restaurant

You can tell by now that one of my favorite food is seafood. This is a typical chinese seafood restaurant located just outside the city center in Tanjong Lobang. This trip, I ordered buttered prawns, clams, local vegetables and rice. There are some live seafood swimming in tanks ready to be cooked for the freshest dishes. Food quality was good & fresh, and all this at a low price ~ less than USD10 per person

You can either sit indoors or outside under the sky, which was what I did. Seafood!!!

Tua Pek Kong Temple

by Hewer

You'll see this place of worship if you spend any time wandering around the city centre of Miri. Referred to by locals simply as "Chinese Temple", Tua Pek Kong is a colourful temple with many interesting murals, carvings and statues. It was only built in 1910 and is a well-established part of the city's character.

If you're in town, go to the big ceremony held there every year on Chinese New year's eve.
