Plan an amazing trip to Brunei Darssalam
A country little known by tourists, the Sultanate of Brunei is one of the smallest states in the world. It is located in south Asia, and bordered by the South China Sea. Brunei is nestled in the northern part of the island of Borneo, surrounded by Malasia and relatively close to the Indonesian border. This country of fewer than 400,000 inhabitants will amaze you with the wealth of its buildings and the biodiversity of its primary tropical forest, which has been preserved in its natural parks.
The capital, Bandar Seri Begawan, is worth visiting for its museums and magnificent mosques. The Omar Ali Saifuddin mosque, built on an artificial island in the heart of the city, has a dazzling Italian marble facade, a dome entirely covered in gold and its minaret is over 50 metres high. Hassanal Bolkiah mosque is even more lavish with its Carrara marble floor, mother of pearl ceiling and 29 golden domes. Take a tour of Kampong Ayer, the lake city. With 400 hundred houses built on the River Limbang. It is the largest stilt village in the world. Navigating the canals and pontoons is like nothing else.
With a mountainous landscape, largely covered by an unspoilt and luxurious tropical forest, Brunei has several national parks with waterfalls, footpaths, and wooden footbridges. In Ulu Temburong Park, you can experience the unique sensation of walking the impressive 7 km metal walkway that allows you to observe the forest canopy. With its magnificent waterfalls, plant life and rare fauna (such as the proboscis monkey), the beauty of Brunei’s jungle delights and fascinates all who love protected natural environments.
