Travel Tips from people who've been to Bandar Seri Begawan
Well breif as my time was in BS all i can say is the people are very kind the Palace is very impressive and most things the western traveller craves are pretty cheap. The only downside i found was similar to thailand, the bathroom facilities are what we would call "pit toilets"! so ew but still its a good little quick trip location if your intersted in the lifestyle and religious aspect.
Brunei is supposedly the wealthiest nation on earth - yet I was struck by the overwhelming poverty of the locals. The Sultan of Brunei has all the wealth; it's an oil-rich country. Mosques are gorgeous, there's some very interesting architecture, but the people living in the water villages live in great poverty. The real draw for Brunei is to get out of Bandar Seri Begwan and go into the national parks to see wildlife. Great hiking, lots of animals, that's where the real beauty lies.
