0730hrs or 1530hrs. – Pick up from your hotel and transfer to a boat jetty in the capital city. Board an open deck local wooden boat and cruise along the Brunei River passing the water village and town. This experience will give you a view of two different worlds – the modern developing capital city of Brunei and on the other side of the river the nostalgic serenity of the biggest Malay water village in the world.
Cruise past the Istana Nurul Iman, the official residence of His Majesty the Sultan of Brunei and the biggest presidential palace in the world with 1,788 rooms. After passing the Royal Palace cruise slowly towards the mangrove forests that line the rivers and creeks of Brunei. See mudskippers hopping on the river banks. If you are lucky see kingfishers plunging into the water to catch small fish. White egrets and night herons are also commonly sighted during this tour. Cruise the mangroves in search of the rare and endangered proboscis monkey which usually comes near to the water’s edge in the early morning and at dusk time. The tour ends with transfer back to your hotel.
