      3-day tour in the capital

      Brunei Apr 4, 2014 at 8:46 PM

      How a group of 6 tourists enjoy Brunei to the maximum level? We also wanted a referral of a nice (not so expensive) hotel that can accommodate us all. Heard the country to be expensive, any suggestions for an affordable tour that won't make our pockets bleed, would be highly appreciated...

      Thanks guys!

    • 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.
