Brunei Experience

US$ 228

Venture to the island of Borneo to explore the remote nation of Brunei. Discover an oil-rich Sultanate home to some of the world’s most opulent Islamic treasures, from the royal palace of Istana Nurul Iman to the golden-domed James Asr’ Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque.


This 3-day Brunei vacation takes you to the remote Southeast Asian nation far off the tourist trail. It features moderate accommodations, small group tours, and is perfect for travellers wanting to experience a part of the world that is rarely visited.

Experience a taste of a faraway land on this journey to Brunei. Wedged between two Malaysian states on the north coast of Borneo, Brunei is an oil-rich nation that has been ruled by a Sultanate for the past 600 years. It’s also home to some of the most opulent treasures of Islamic culture in the entire world. After landing in the capital of Bandar Seri Bagawan, you’ll spend a couple nights exploring the capital. A half day tour will showcase the city’s splendour. Start at the Royal Palace, Istana Nurul Iman, known as the Palace of Light, which is one of the world’s largest palaces with 1,788 rooms. Next up is James Asr’ Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque, an opulent mosque with 29 golden-topped domes. The Royal Regalia Museum will get you up to speed on the country’s history and some of the Sultan’s personal treasures of Islamic art. Close out your tour with a river cruise to a water village, where you’ll enjoy some traditional cakes in a local home. The rest of your time is at leisure to explore Bandar and perhaps head into the surrounding forest in search of a proboscis monkey.

At the end of your stay, head back to the airport to continue your Southeast Asian journey.
