"Pristine Tropical Forest" Temburong by cochinjew

Temburong Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 86 photos

Largest District in Brunei

but cut off from the main commercial centres. by a slice of Sarawak. Easy to reach as the Govt maintains transport with reasonable frequencies. "Flying Coffins" are a fun way to skim along the pacific brunei river and its tributaries. the ride takes no more than about 35 minutes and it is comfortable.

Bangar, modern on the edge of the Jungle

It is strange to wander through nypah palms, coconut palms, mangrove islands and then all of a sudden you come to a town with modern architecture. I noticed that for the govt building they have maintained their malay influence but the locals, who are not Malay but Iban and other related tribes, are given consideration by inclusion of their designs, at the shopping complex for instance.

Durians any one

when we embarked the sweet smell of Durians hit our nose and they were on sale right on the wharf. they looked good as well, enough to eat..
