Muara, Brunei-port

You will be charmed by Brunei’s many beautiful markets, incredible museums and unspoiled nature. Within the capital, Muara, you will find breathtaking landmarks. The Sultan’s lavish residence is not to be missed, as it has achieved legendary status as the largest palace in the world and features a unique blend of contemporary and traditional Islamic architecture. But there is nothing traditional — or expected — in this small country in Southeast Asia. Be prepared to be surprised at every turn.

    An eye-opening study in contrasts, this tour presents the extravagant world of Brunei's sultan, followed by a look at life in a village built on stilts in the river.

    Starting off from the pier, you will first travel inland toward the majestic Jame Mosque, Brunei's largest, where you will pause briefly for photos. Nearby, you will have a second photo stop that offers you a distant view of the Sultan's Palace which is situated on the leafy banks of the Brunei River.

    Continuing on, you will arrive at the white-domed Royal Regalia where you can wander through exhibits of luxurious items from the Sultan's lavish coronation and other celebrations. Some of the items you may have the opportunity to see here are His Majesty's royal chariot, ceremonial swords, a model of the palace and various gifts from foreign dignitaries. But as you will soon see, there's more to Brunei than the extravagances afforded by its abundant oil and natural gas.

    Making your way to a nearby jetty, you will board a boat and cruise to Water Village where you will witness firsthand a much different side of life. More than 30,000 people live here in thousands of structures built on stilts in the Brunei River. The village is an amazing assortment of homes, restaurants, mosques, shops and hospitals, all connected by wooden boardwalks. Surprisingly, some of the homes are quite elaborate, and you will have the unique opportunity of stopping by one for a cup of tea. Amazingly, people have lived in the Water Village for more than 1,300 years, making it one of the most historic areas in Brunei.

    Following your time at the Water Village, you will retrace your route as you make your way back to the pier.

    Please note: This tour includes approximately 2-hours of easy to moderate walking. Some of the walking is over uneven surfaces and a wooden walkway. There are some steps to negotiate and guests must be able to enter and exit the tour boat on their own. This tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Long cotton pants; cotton shirt; a hat; sunglasses; sun screen and flat, comfortable walking shoes that are easy to slip in and out of are recommended. Low cut tops, shorts and short skirts or dresses are not considered appropriate. Shoes must be removed at the Royal Regalia and at the home visited at Water Village. Photography is not allowed in the Royal Regalia or mosques and all cameras and handbags must be left at the entrance to Royal Regalia.
