Kuala Belait is the second largest city in Brunei. It is also the administrative capital of the Belait District. With a population of over 30,000 residents, the city is popularly referred to as just Belait. Kuala Belait means ‘the mouth of the Belait River’.
The city is typified by an equatorial climate with warm temperatures all year round. Summers are hot but the cool breezes alleviate the heat. Winters are generally mild. The city receives considerable rainfall during the months of April to May as well as from November to December.
Initially, Kuala Belait was a tiny fishing settlement with no infrastructure. However, today, the city is the main centre for the oil and gas industry and a major trade centre in Brunei.
