Brunei is a really minor but really rich independent the world located on the northeastern coast of Borneo. Negara Brunei Darussalam is rich due to her stone oil reserves.  The caput of province is a Sultan, an absolute monarch.  The country's official religion is Islam.

Ordinarily, I wouldn't intend of bringing my identify unit of measurement to Brunei, fifty-fifty though every bit Singaporeans nosotros know as well as take away maintain read nigh Brunei.  Well, let's only state that at that spot isn't much to produce inward Brunei.  But, hey, this is the solely the world inward the basis where nosotros tin sack purpose our Singapore Dollars without converting!

Anyway, hither nosotros are, inward Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei.  We decided to become amongst a send organized tour, to the Water Village (Kampong Ayer inward Malay) as good every bit the Negara Brunei Darussalam city.  It was a cloudy day.

And nosotros depart the port on schedule.  That is the Legend of the Seas.  The port is a container port which didn't await really busy at all.

This was the entrance to the mosque as well as at that spot was an escalator.  But nosotros were non allowed to enter.

The guide telling us to a greater extent than information.

After a brief visit, nosotros headed dorsum to our tour coach.  There were at to the lowest degree iii coaches there, all from the cruise ship.

From the Mosque, it was a xv infinitesimal ride to the Water Village (Kampong Ayer).

See those boats?  We would live boarding them really soon.

We take away maintain only alighted from our coach.  We volition live boarding our boat from this jetty.

The long boat has pulled upwards to the steps.  Thankfully the river was non choppy, otherwise boarding the boat would live really dangerous.

I wondered whether nosotros could all gibe into the boat.

Good, they had life jackets.   Better rubber than sorry.

The boarding procedure was relatively quick.

The boatman was patiently waiting.  Notice to a greater extent than or less other boat behind.

We had boarded.  They had life jackets for kids too.  The boat could take away maintain the entire coach, to a greater extent than than forty pax.  That made things logistically easier.  One boat for 1 coach.

This was to a greater extent than or less other mosque.

There was a yellowish boat inward the distance.  Wonder what that boat was for.

That looked similar a H2O pipe.

Bridges were built across the river.

We take away maintain live arrived at a river house.  All of us got off the boat as well as were invited into the house.
