1. Jame Asre Mosque (His Majesty's Mosque)
2. Istana Nurul Iman (His Majesty's Palace)
3. Royal Regalia Museum (priceless exhibits from His Majesty's family dynasty)
4. Water Village Visit to Kapong Ayer (the largest in S. E. Asia)
5. River Tour to the Mangroves and Proboscis Monkeys (unique to Borneo)
6. Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque (The Late Sultan's mosque - world renowned for its beauty)
7. The Malay Technology Museum (showcasing indigenous culture from Kapong Ayer and native tribes)
8. The Brunei Maritime Museum (the 16th Century Brunei shipwreck displayed with it's precious cargo)
9. The Kota Batu Archaeology site (featuring 16th Century artefacts and the 3rd Sultan's tomb)

A Recent Review of this tour

Irene made my Brunei trip. She is very knowledgeable and entertaining. As I was not sure where I should go for a half-day tour, she took me to most of all the must-see places in Brunei. I was so lucky enough to see a big family of monkey in the mangrove thanks to her and the boat driver too. Her trip was not only taking me to the famous sightseeing spots but educate me a lot - economics, government, Muslim culture, people and history of Brunei. Highly recommended!
