    Yayasan Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Complex: The Mall

    by easterntrekker Written Mar 31, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The largest shopping center in Brunei is the Yayasan Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Complex . It is located close to the riverfront. It has severalfloors and a big department store on one end.maybe shopping is what this town does for entertainment as it seemed to be the busiest spot in this sleepy town!!

    We stocked up on snack food at the modern grocery store.

    Yayasan Complex: Go malling at Yayasan!

    by June.b Written Feb 16, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The biggest mall in Brunei, but, virtually nothing BIG to offer.

    There are shops, both native products or handicrafts and electronics, toys stores, groceries.

    Designers stuff is not a pop-culture in Brunei so you won't find much.

    Even if there's not much to buy here, you can still enjoy the amenities - there are good restaurants and fastfood chains, coffeeshops - and the Kampong Ayer and the huge mosque are around the mall.

    There are times that you're the only person walking along the collonaded walkways featuring a majestic view of the Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque.

    Mall: Shopping

    by Emile72 Written Jul 28, 2007

    There is one shopping mall in the capital. It looks fantastic, glitzy. But the shops inside are nothing special and there is not much to do. But since you are in the city, it doesn't hurt looking around there. In the basement they have a good supermarket where you can buy lots of goodies. In the departmentstore in the mall you can buy some souvenirs, etc.

  • The Tamu in Bandar Seri Begawan: Local Brunei Handicrafts and Antiques

    by bal176 Written Jan 16, 2007

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On Fridays, among the stores within the Tamu markets in the Brunei Capital (opposite the Brunei Hotel) and Chinese temple, you will find a little store that sells old Bruneian antiques such as coins and bronze cannons. Worth a visit if you happen to be there on the day.

    Airconditioned shops

    by Xtian Written Oct 27, 2006

    If you are craving for an airconditioned shopping experience, go to Yayasan (in Bandar) or The Mall (the Gadong commercial district, 10-15 mins away).

    The Mall also has cheap movies for around B$3.50 pp.

    most...: Anything you want, but nothing local...

    by Saagar Written May 20, 2006

    Most shops/super markets hold a vast quantity if foreign goods, including luxury goods. I went into one Bandar Seri Begawan supermarket where just about everything was Swedish. I found very little that could be called local goods. The closest would be Malaysian longyis.

    What to buy: A very boring place for buying mementos or any thing local to bring home. It is a bit like Kuwait - the locals go overseas to buy cutlery and fridges and generally seem bored with what is the original homegrown material culture.

    Yayasan Sultan Haji Hassanai Bolkiah Mall: High end shopping mall in the city

    This departemtn store sells certain interesting and expensive products such as crystals and italian indoor fountains. It shows how wealth this country is. Remember this is a "NO Pic" sign in those areas as I believe visitors would like to capture such expensive items in their camera.

    everywhere: CD and DVD copies..

    by kokoryko Written Oct 21, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    many specialised shops in Brunei; almost averywhere !

    What to buy: Everywhere, downtown or in shopping malls are lots of shops selling thousands and thousands of these items; you even can find movies before they appear officially in your homeland cinemas. Really lots, not the best ones generally, but with luck and time some good old movies can be found. It seems legal in Brunei to sell fake copies, but I do not know how the customs will react when you come back to your country.
    For other electronic items, the prices are matching Singapore prices.
