Not to miss:  Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque in the city centre is one of the most extraordinary mosques in the whole Southeast Asia as well as a symbol for the people in Islamic faith. Its architectural style mirrors the use of elegant materials, ias for example the notorious Italian marble, granite from Shanghai, English stained glass and chandeliers,etc. Tourists are kindly asked not to wear shoes when entering the mosque and dress according to a simple and conservative style.
Festivals are full of colour, enthusiasm and happiness and the youngs mix up with the olds, with no prejudice ... More in a spirit of unity and brotherhood to share traditions passed down by ancestors!

Other important events are the Chinese New Year, celebrated by the Chinese Community, which lasts two weeks and the Christmas Day.

Brunei also offers good possibilities to practice golf, bowling, squash, tennis, swimming, badminton, snooker, windsurfing, soccer, aerobics along with traditional local sports: gasing, sepak takraw and kite-flying
Travellers can find something interesting and valuable at the market stalls or syarikats as well as the local stores
Restaurants do not sell alcoholic drinks, as illegal in Brunei
The most famous shopping mall in Brunei is the Jalan Mc Arthur. Not far away from town, on Jalan Muara, is Tiong Hin, a popular shopping place for locals offering a wide variety of grocery and fishing supplies,toys, etc. There are also shops at the International Airport,where it is possible to get Duty Free items: CDs, sports equipments and all what in need!

General opinion:  Bandar Seri Begawan is the official name of Brunei’s capital. Since the country is a small one, it can be toured in just a day time!
Impressive is the Omar Saifuddin Mosque, a religious institution, not to forget the free Royal Treasures Museum, for gold lovers, where the sultan's coronation regalia and many other gifts His Majesty has been offered to, can be enjoyed! Interesting is Kampung Ayer, a water village.
The Jerudong Playground, one of Brunei's main attractions is in a suburband the taxi back to the hotel is really expensive.
Brunei, ... More north-west of Borneo, bordering with the Malaysian State of Sarawak and with a coastline along the shore of the South China Sea, covers a total area of 5,765 km2.
The four districts it consists of are:
Brunei-Muara
Tutong
Belait
Temburong.
Bandar Seri Begawan, capital is the most densily populated are as well as the main administrative centre.
The land is mostly covered by tropical rain forest.
Brunei is a Malay Islamic Monarchy with its own traditions and cultural identity. Brunei-Muara, the smallest of Brunei's districtsis the most important, populous and bustling district because Bandar Seri Begawan, seat of the government, is here. The population is about 280,000 people of which Malays represent 70%, but there are also Chinese, Indians and other communities. Malay is the official language, but English is properly known and used in both business commerce.
Climate is equatorial with both rainfall and humidity and minimal seasonal variations. Average temperature is 28°.
