Things To Do

Malay Technology Museum

A pair of rooms here have interesting life-sized recreations of stilt houses with accompanying information on traditional cultures.

Jame'Asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque

The interior here is best described as jaw-dropping. The sheer volume is in itself amazing, not to mention the myriad woven rugs scattered across the men’s prayer hall.

Pasar Gadong

Brunei’s most famous night market, Pasar Gadong is a bustling marquee of munch parked near the big shopping centres in Gadong. Vendors offer every cooked comestible imaginable, from satay and barbecued fish to chicken wings

Brunei Museum

Sitting on a bluff overlooking Sungai Brunei, the Brunei Museum is 4.5km east of central BSB. The main building contains the excellent Islamic Art Gallery.

Ayamku Resturaunt

Brunei’s answer to KFC, this is one of the cheapest places in town to get a meal.

Oil and Gas Gallery

In the Brunei Museum, the Oil and Gas Gallery is surprisingly interesting. It answers all your questions about how they get the stuff from under the ground to your nearest gas pump.

Arts & Handicrafts Centre

Built to help develop local craftwork, the Arts & Handicrafts Centre sits on the waterfront towards the Brunei Museum like an aged Floridian timeshare. It’s visible from town and within easy walking distance.

Twelve Roofs House

The gabled Twelve Roofs House was once the residence of the British High Commissioners. Today the complex displays photos illustrating British involvement in Brunei and the ‘special relationship’ between the two countries.
