You cannot visit Brunei without visiting its mosques. The architecture is simply mind-blowing, and one mosque particularly stands out: the Jame Asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque. It’s located in Bandar Seri Begawan.

It is a fantastic place that every tourist should visit. But book in advance to see the best places when visiting this mosque as it is only open to tourists during specific times.

Bandar Seri Begawan is the capital of Brunei and the largest urban center, housing a large percentage of the total Brunei population.
The capital city is beautifully erected over the Brunei River and therefore is home to some of Brunei’s largest waterways.
Many homes in the capital are built over water which creates perfect artistic scenery and a wonder to the eyes.
Secure the services of a local guide to show you around the trails. There are always local guides and boatmen to give you a tour of the city.
Sometimes, even residents offer their home for tourists’ accommodation, especially in Kampong Ayer, the world’s largest village.
