Brunei Tourist Traps

  • Don't change currency at the airport!

    If you do change currency at the airport, you would lose a lot of money. Better to withdraw on one of the ATM in the city (I am not sure if there is an ATM in Brunei Airport as I never seen one)

  • The sultan's gift

    Jerudong ParkThis is an attraction park, build for the Brunean 15 years ago; it was gratis until recently, but now you have to pay to have a ride on one of the attractions (chenille, grand huit, etc….) ; it is a sort of a mini Disneyworld, with all sorts of attractions.

  • DOn't go to Serasa beach.......

    DOn't go to Serasa beach.... It was truly beautiful, a natural spit that has been cut, dredged and the remnants have been polluted utterly by the ships and the frequent visitors.
