Bandar Seri Begawan is a town in Brunei Darussalam that honours two famous mosques – the Omar Ali Saifuddien and Jame'Asr Hassanil Bolkiah. The beautiful minarets define these structures and their interiors are quite well-decorated. The former mosque is eloquent and opulent with fancy carpets and Venetian mosaic, and the latter, the Jame'Asr Hassanil Bolkiah, is made up of 29 golden domes.

If you’re in Brunei, the Kampung Ayer or Water Village is a must-visit. There are numerous little constituents that comprise the main village – residences, religious sites, mosques, landmarks, monuments, schools and hospitals. A feature of the Kampung Ayer is that it is built on stilts over the Brunei River.

Looking for biota other than the human kind? The Ulu Temburong National Park is probably on your glossary of to-dos in Brunei. Since only a few square kilometers of the park is open to tourists, you can expect a clean, uncluttered excursion through the forested cover. Butterflies, hornbills and Bornean gibbons are common sightings.

Among others, you can visit the Billionth Barrel, Royal Regalia Museum, and if time permits, the mangrove sanctuary of Pulau Selirong.
