    Private drivers

    Brunei Jan 5, 2015 at 10:52 AM

    Can anyone give me the number or email of a reliable and trustworthy private driver in Brunei, who could drive me around for a few days later this month, including a day trip to Miri? I am visiting for a friend for 5 days, but she'll be working during the day for 3 of them. As a middle aged solo female traveller, I would rather go round with a local who knows the nooks and crannies than spend my time trying to fathom out bus routes!

  • Labaun, Brunei, Kota Kinabalu Trip

    Brunei Dec 8, 2013 at 12:45 PM

    Trip Duration:3 nights, 4 days(18/1/14 to 21/1/14).
    Trip Suggestions/tips for the following itinerary will be much appreciated:
    A)18/01/2014,Saturday arriving at Labuan, Malaysia airport at 11-30AM. Take ferry from Labuan international ferry terminal to Muara ferry terminal at Brunei. Take public bus from Muara ferry terminal at Brunei to head-off to Bandar Seri Begawan. Bandar Seri Begawan city sightseeing but not sure what to do/see during the late afternoon/evening time, staying overnight at Bandar Seri Begawan decided on which hostel/homestay/budget accommodation. Emailed to Pusat Belia Hostel but no response(no hotel stay planned as city hotels are too expensive) yet: suggestions welcome
    B) 19/01/2014, Sunday: Brunei sightseeing. Don’t prefer to see museum; so at this stage not planning to visit Brunei Museum ,Malay Technology Museum.
    At this stage planning to visit the followings but fine to add/delete attractions based on your suggestions.
    The Royal Regalia Building
    Kampong Ayer cultural & Tourism Gallery
    Read that boat ride from the city marina is interesting but not sure what to see/prices etc.
    Photo taking:
    - Jame'Asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque
    - Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque
    - Dermaga Di Raja Bandar Seri Begawan
    - Yayasan Shopping Complex

    Staying overnight at Bandar Seri Begawan decided on which hostel/homestay/budget accommodation.

    C)20/01/2014 Monday: Will have to travel to from Bandar Seri Begawan to Kota Kinabalu. There are 2 options but would prefer to take bus instead of ferry. The issue here is if I miss the early morning bus, what are the options to recover & reach Kota Kinabalu by the end of the day.

    Not sure what to do/see during the evening time. Suggestion on hostel/homestay/budget accommodation at Kota Kinabalu city center is welcome. Kota Kinabalu

    D) 21/01/2014 Tuesday: Kota Kinabalu city, nearby attractions/sightseeing. Flight departing from Kota Kinabalu airport.

    Thanks for your suggestions/tips.

    Transport and things worth doing....

    Brunei Apr 24, 2013 at 1:59 AM

    I am travelling to Brunei 27th June and departing 13th July. My confirmed plans at this stage are arrival in BSB afternoon on 27th, look around BSB 27th and 28th, travel to Miri 29th, fly to Mulu 30th, return to Miri 6th. This leaves me with a week. Does anyone have any suggestions for things to do - either independently (preferable) or through a company in Brunei for this week. Relatively modest budget, single traveller and tour companies are expensive compared to other areas of Asia I have visited?
    My alternatives are stay in the Miri area for a few more days and visit Lambir Hills and Niah national parks (although after 5 days in Mulu, I may be feeling like doing something different) and then just three days in Brunei before departure or the full week in Brunei.
    Secondly, does anyone know of any places for snorkelling (or possibly diving) in the region.
    Finally, tips for transport from Brunei (BSB) to Miri.
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
