Are you looking for culture, adventure or nature? Find all three with our new Beautiful Brunei Stopover package! From just B$696/£323 per person covers all accommodation, transfers, main meals, tours and light refreshments.
The best way to recover from a long flight is fresh air, good food and a change of scenery. We’ll be there to greet you as soon as you land at Brunei airport, and whisk you away to your hotel of choice so you can check in and freshen up. Then let us take you to dinner, and let you marvel at the beautiful Sultan Omar Ali Saliuddin mosque and Islana Narul Iman palace before delighting your senses with the sights, scents and tastes of the famous Gadong Night Market. Then it’s time for bed!
This is your journey, so you decide where you want to take it. If you want a slice of local life, culture and food, Temburong Experience takes you to a local Iban longhouse to chat with the locals, and watch them demonstrate their delicious cuisine. After lunch, take a ride on a traditional longboat!
If you’re feeling the call of the wild, the Best of Temburong tour can help you answer. The fizzing sounds of the jungle will surround you in Ulu Ulu National Park, and the emerald canopies of virgin South-East Asian rainforest stretch as far as the eye can see from the elevated walkways. There are hundreds of species of animals, birds, reptiles and insects to look out for while trekking through the jungle. Then it’s time for a traditional Malay lunch, and even a swim if you fancy it!
On the other hand, after being cramped on a plane for more than 10 hours, you probably want to stretch your legs and find some Temburong Adventure. Kayak down the mini-rapids, zoom down the zipwire, or climb to the heights of the Gibbon Tower – the largest in Borneo!
No matter what you choose, we’ll transfer you safely back to your hotel so you can enjoy the rest of your day relaxing or doing whatever you feel like to recover! But the fun isn’t over yet.
Venice isn’t the only place with floating houses. Hop aboard our boat and drift past the water village on the way to the mangroves, where you can see birds, crocodiles and maybe even the rare proboscis monkey! Once back on dry land we’ll treat you to lunch, before guiding you through the beautiful man-made sights of the Royal Regalia and Malay Technological Museums and the iconic James Asri Mosque. Finally, there’s plenty of time for souvenir shopping before we whisk you to the airport on your way to another adventure.
It certainly beats sitting in an airport for 72 hours!
