Despite its oil-rich lands, Bandar is a simple and modest country within Brunei’s borders. Bandar Seri Begawan (BSB for short), focuses on urban settings, with malls and restaurants littering the area. But BSB’s historic past shines through in the form of the largest water village and a few museums within its subtle streets, giving it an antiquated feel that is both intruiging and almost nostalgic.
Overview
Look into BSB’s past when you visit the Malay Technology Museum, filled with artifacts that show life in Brunei’s history. Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque is a pristine building of white and gold that is the biggest attraction in BSB. Don’t forget to take a photo! Don’t miss a trip to the Water Heritage Village, known to the locals as Kampong Ayer, to check the sight of houses on stilts.
