    Hi, there is plenty to see in two days in Brunei.

    You can wander around the water villages, visit the mosque (fantastic), chinese temple (it's a bit different), palace museum, do a waterway tour see the monkeys and or croc's. Travel from one end of the country to the other!

    It is not a cheap place, not like Thailand, but not too bad either; no alcohol available for sale at all (you can bring in duty free), shopping isn't too bad in the one major mall near the night markets.

    There are some great food outlets, Indian, Chinese, Malay

    I was there 4 days and managed to keep myself busy. Only hassle was that public transport stops at 6.00pm so taxi's by myself added to the costs....

    Have a great stay

    cafank is right. I was there for 1 Day and 1 night in January. We did the floating village, who's the biggest in the world and the boat tour to look for wildlife. In Brunei you find the Proboscis Monkey. You find these monkeys only in the Malaysian Borneo. Very unusal animal. You can spend easely 2 days in Brunei.
    Have fun

    best to hire a car, and maybe a driver cum guide, go on a road trip to see the whole of brunei, plus maybe miri or limbang in sarawak, premium is only 53cents per litre, driving rules same as uk n aussie, nasi campur is only1.00 to2.00 at sumbangsih...

    kota kinabalu is only 350kms away, a road trip is about 6 hrs, thru 8 border posts, and is doable over 2 days n one night during off peaks ie outside school and public holidays..

    do extend your stay, it's worth it!

    most grocery items are imported from malaysia, china, australia etc, and prices are thus subject to fluctuations. there are a number of supermarkets to choose from, including the latest Giant superstore at Rimba. prices at local markets are seasonal, depending on supply n demand n subject to weather. if you are familiar with singapore n malaysia's cost of living, then brunei col would be in-between! the difference is no hassles with vat or gst and no personal income tax.
    basic commodities like rice, sugar, petrol are govt price controlled n subsidised. utilities ie water n electricity are the lowest rates in asia, and highest per capita consumption!
