Brunei Darussalem — Visiting the Islamic Sultanate & Virgin Rainforest

Zooming through Ulu Temoborong National Park
One of the mosques in Bandar Seri Begawan, the capital of Brunei. Grand!

Kampong Ayer

A tiny slice of the massive Kampong Ayer. Not my lifestyle, but it’s pretty nifty.
This little fella greeted us on the pier and watched us off as we headed back to the mainland.

Ulu Temburong National Park

Sunset in Ulu Temborong. Our tent/cabin was right on this river!
The bridge, *way* in the distance.
On our jungle hike! Can you tell that this was Lena’s idea?

The Canopy Walk

I would not advise you to do this canopy walk if you are afraid of heights. I’m afraid of heights. I still did the canopy walk. It was parts exhilarating, parts terrifying. I’m glad I did it, but I don’t know if I would ever do one again.

The suspension bridge. The high wire on both sides made me not terrified of this walk. Any lower, and I’m not having it.
Lena at the tip top of the scaffolding. Needless to say, I didn’t take advantage of this optional part of the canopy walk.

Pizza Hut

Somehow, a tiny country of 400,000 people scored it’s own country-exclusive flavor of Pizza Hut pizza. It’s honey garlic chicken, and it was delicious (accounting for the fact that it is still pizza hut).

A fitting sign to end my post found at the edge of the Sumbling eco village.
