What to Do in Brunei

Brunei is divided into four districts: Brunei Muara, home to the capital – Bandar Seri Begawan; the sparsely populated Temburong (cut off from the rest of the country by the Limbang district of Sarawak), agriculture-laden Tutong and oil-rich Belait. Despite its lucrative assets, much of Brunei has remained unchanged for centuries due to its oil resources – primary and secondary tropical rainforests still cover about 75 % of the total land area. Most sightseeing spots in the sultanate are located within the Bandar Seri Begawan area. Additionally, the oil-rich emirate has one major national park as well as a number of forest reserves including Lake Merimbum, Peradayan Forest Reserve and Ulu Temburong National Park.

Jerudong Park Playground

Opened in 1994, the Jerudong Park Playground is another big-ticket expenditure by the Brunei monarchy. The sprawling amusement park was originally built as a private playground for the royal family and is said to be the largest and most expensive amusement park in Southeast Asia. It’s divided into two sections and Michael Jackson performed a free concert at its Amphitheatre in 1996.

  • Opening Hours: 17:00 – 24:00 Wednesday – Friday & Sunday; 17:00 – 02:00 Saturday
  • Location: Jerudong

Merimbum Heritage Park

An ASEAN Heritage Park, the 7,800-hectare Merimbum is the perfect place to pitch a tent. 27km inland from Tutong, the park surrounds the black-water Tasek Merimbum, Brunei’s largest lake, which is home to a wide variety of birds, mammals and reptiles.

Pantai Meragang

Also known as Crocodile Beach, Pantai Meragang is not as crowded as Brunei’s other beach destinations, due to its relative obscurity. There’s a couple of food stalls, making it a good place for a picnic, but it’s hard to get here unless you’ve rented your own transport.

Pantai Muara

A popular weekend retreat, Pantai Muara is located two kilometres from town. The beach is not particularly beautiful – though the white-sand beach is aesthetically beautiful, it’s sprinkled with debris. On the other hand, it’s a tranquil spot without crowds and the perfect place for a picnic.

Pantai Serasa

Another beach in Muara, Pantai Serasa is the location of the Brunei Yacht Club. Though the beach is merely a thin stretch of white-sand, there’s a water sports centre here and it’s a great place for a picnic as there’s lots of food stalls set up along the roadside during the weekends.

Peradayan Forest Reserve

Home to the 310-metre Bukit Peradayaan and the 410-metre Bukit Patoi, the Peradayaan Forest Reserve is a good trekking alternative for those who can’t make it out to the Ulu Temborong National Park. Located 15km southeast of Bangar, the park has jungle trails that range from easy walks to gruelling treks that lead up to mountain summits.

  • Location: Temburong district

Ulu Temburong National Park

Located within the Batu Apoi Forest Reserve, Ulu Temborong is an untouched and wide expanse of primary rainforest that covers most of southern Temburong. Featuring a 60-metre canopy walkway, the park is accessible via longboat only and remains one of Brunei’s most tourist-visited spots.
