Discover beautiful Bandar Seri Begawan, the charming capital city of Brunei, and visit a local water village on this half-day tour. See the city's iconic buildings and then travel aboard a water taxi over the Brunei River to get a glimpse into the everyday lives of locals.
Enjoy hotel pickup in the comfort of an air-conditioned vehicle and ride past Bandar Seri Begawan's historic sites, such as Lapau, Dewan Majlis, and even the majestic Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque. Continue your tour by exploring the Malay Technology Museum and the Royal Regalia Centre to learn about Brunei's unique heritage before stopping at the enormous Jame Asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque.
Next, fully immerse yourself in Brunei culture as you board a water taxi to cross the Brunei River, passing local water villages that have been home to thousands of people for over a millennium. Upon arrival at one of the villages, watch locals as they go about their everyday lives. Even sit down to enjoy a refreshing cup of tea and sumptuous cakes.
After a break, hop back on your water taxi for the short ride to Istana Nurul Iman, the official residence of the Sultan of Brunei. Marvel at its grandiose architecture and don't miss this opportunity to snap photos of one of the largest residential palaces in the world.
