If you are planning a trip to Brunei’s capital make sure to consider our Bandar Seri Begawan car hire services as your means of personal transportation. Considering its rather long name the city is usually referred to as either BSB or simply Bandar.
The city is served by the Brunei Airport which is located at about a twenty minute drive via taxi from the city center, on the other hand you could have our Bandar Seri Begawan car rental services have a car of your choice ready for you at the airport so that you can start driving towards your destination as soon as you land.
There are a few attractions that you can visit while in the city, as opposed to other major cities in the Southeast Asia region, Bandar doesn’t feature a lot of stunning architecture but it does have a few sights worth to mention, such as the Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque which can be visited by tourists when it is not used for prayers. It’s a very welcoming place which will offer you a robe when entering and don’t forget to remove your shoes and be respectfully quiet inside.
The Kampong Ayer or water village will usually imply getting a water taxi in order to visit. It’s quite an interesting sight to see hundred of floating houses, not to mention the fact that the inhabitants are very welcoming and friendly and many of them will open their homes to visitors all year-round. Of course you don’t have to get a water taxi in order to visit the village you can start wandering around it by starting behind the Sultan’s Mosque.
Then there’s the Royal Regalia museum which displays all the royal accessories used during the coronation ritual as well as various gifts received by the Sultan from other world leaders.
And then of course there’s the Istana Nurul Iman or the Sultan’s residential palace which while it is not possible to visit, its huge size will attract tourists to take some photographs anyway.
These are of course only of the few things that you can see and do while in Brunei’s capital so make sure to consider our Bandar Seri Begawan car hire services as a way of seeing as many of them as possible.
