  • Purple Bus

    It’s Monday and I am finally on my own. After having breakfast at the hotel, I head to the bus stop just across the place where I was staying. I took Bus No. 55 to Bandar (1 dollar) where I took Bus No. 39 to Muara. At the port in Muara, transfer to Bus No. 33 going to Pantai Muara (Muara bridge).Be very patient in waiting for a bus. It took me 20...

  • Royal Brunei

    We flew with Royal Brunei for the first time and have no complaints. The flight from Dubai left a little late but arrived on time. No alcohol, BTW, but I don't think that's a problem on flights - in fact it can be a problem when passengers have too much!.A Boeing 777 runs daily between Brunei and London Heathrow with a stop in Dubai. Going, the...

    Flying is the obvious way to reach Brunei, which has a small international airport in the capital Banda Seri Begawan, and its own national airline, Royal Brunei.We flew on Royal Brunei from Dubai, a Boeing 777 which flies London Heathrow-Dubai-Brunei.With an Aussie passport I got an automatic 14 day visa, for B$20, on arrival. Some passports need...

  • Jungle on your own

    Renting a car is the way to achieve independence in a place with relatively expensive tours and taxi service. The rental itself is not a rock bottom bargain but it is definitely worth it. It offers the possibility to go to the most remote longhouses that happen to be on stable ground. This is a double edged sword of course because a superficial...

  • Taxi from the Airport

    There are many money changers and an ATM at the airport.( lots of ATM's in town too).We knew it would be expensive here ,as the 11km ride from the airport was $25.00. There was little information available on arrival . Although there were lots of buses ,we had no idea how long the wait for one.

  • Bus to city centre

    The price index in Brunei is comparable to that of Australia. Around 3 times the expenses of Hong Kong. I am paying HK$ 25 for MacDonald meal in HK but have to spend equivalent to HK$ 70 for the same in Australia. 20 minutes trip from the Brunei airport to city centre takes about 35 USD. If you want to save pocket money, you may choose to walk 5-10...

  • Taxis and Buses

    Taxis are very few even in the city of Darussalam. It was less than 50 as I was told by our Tour guide. Good thing we were on a package tour and didn't have any problems since we are to be fetched & dropped off by a service. At night, there are no more buses because most of the citizens have their own vehicles.

  • Water Taxi

    You can get a much cheaper price to go around the water village if you know someone who is living in the water village itself. Actually the cost of transportation only cost you around B$0.50 per person. :)

  • Taxi travel

    Public transport is a funny thing in Brunei Darussalam - there is not too much of it. During the day there are several "Line" buses which can take you to various areas around Bandar Seri Begawan or within the region, these are cheap and you get to see lots of local areas.Beware however that these buses stop at 6.00pm. So, if you are out of town it...

    Australians can obtain visa on arrival at Brunei Airport. it is valid for one month. the charge is 20 BD. for another 10 BD extra, they will stamp multiple entries so that you can come and go as you like for one month, which i think is a good deal.

    Getting to Brunei by bus from Miri in Sarawak might sound really daunting, simply because its a short journey but you change buses about three times and you even have to take one boat. In spite of all this, I'll definitely recommend this form of transport. Everything was extremely efficient and I never had to wait for any of the buses for more than...

  • Taxi and some buses

    Brunei is the opposite to a public transport heaven. To get around most of the country you'll have to rent a car (or get a taxi which will be expensive). In Bandar Seri Begawan you can use bus though which leave from the central bus station. Buses go to the boat terminal every half an hour and several buses go around the city ( to for instance the...

  • Rent a cars in Bandar Seri Begawan (BSB)

    Rent a cars are expensive in Brunei. With taxes expect to pay close to A$100 per day for the cheapest model. If you're only planning on staying in Brunei for several days, as a stopover en route to another destination, do yourself a favour and use a taxi.The only downside to this tip, is that approx 30 taxis service Bandar which has a population of...

  • Travel to Sarawak

    I picked up a jeep in Kuala Belait and shared with others going to Miri, Sarawak. It was not unduly expensive, but schedules were so-so, basically depending on the tides. The route went along the beach; the jungle of Borneo being inpenetrable and wet tidal sands being the only road. The border crossing was a simple affair, and getting into Malaysia...

    I flew to Brunei from Bangkok by Royal Brunei Airlines. I departed by Singapore Airlines directly to Singapore. Both ways were easy and comfortable, and the Brunei airport was sparkling new, easy and oversized to the actual traffic at the time.

  • Busses not taxis

    Take the purple buses - they are cheap and go everywhere. Taxi's always cost a bomb anywhere and the buss station is right in the middle of Bandar (it's a small place remember). Just find your way to the bus station (ask a local, it's easy to find), all the buses seem to leave from here so it's thronging with locals (avoid the toilets, oh...

  • Prices for taxi from airport to city

    Although there is a fixed price list post right outside the airport arrival hall, the taxi divers collide together and do not follow the prices being set. It is quite disppointed that a rich and muslim country like Brunei can tolerate such non-ethnical behaviours.The standard price from airport to Capital Hotel is set as $16, but all divers waiting...

    The main minibus and bus terminal is located in the city center Jalan Cator. It is the cheapest way to get around, but a bit crowded as you can see.

You can go to all...
