    Apart from the well-known Masjid Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin in the city centre, there is another mosque which also famous in the city. This mosque located just outside the city centre, but close to some other location like Pasar Gadong and RIPAS Hospital. Went there for Jumaat prayer, they still practicing physical distancing and preventive measure for Covid-19 even though this country hasn't any case in nearly 300 days.

    Generally it is a night market under the proper market building, housing range of foods and fruits. Food price are cheap and have a lot of variety from local dishes to snacks. There also several tables where you can have your meal.

    A must visit when in Brunei. The world's biggest water village, and has been here since the 11th century. We also saw some Kimodo dragons in trees, a fire station and some schools.

    Being in Bandar Seri Begawan on a weekend I happened to see the town's all three 'tamu' (market). After dinner Saturday evening at the 'Tamu Selera', which is exclusively a food market with cooked meals (open daily from 5 -pm to midnight) I then went next morning, on a Sunday, to the town's main market, the Tamu Kianggeh, named after the small nearby river of that name.

    It is a good place to see what is on offer in the country, from vegetables, fruit to meat and fish. Some sell cooked food to be eaten there. Also some other items are for sale, for example basketry, which would be an item for tourists, but tourists are hardly ever seen in this town.

    From here I walked to the main street, the Jalan Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin, where a 24h weekend market is held, from 6pm on Saturday till 6pm on Sunday. Here the accent is less on food than clothes, shoes and all kind of other items.

    Of all the three places the most atmospheric is definitely the night market 'Tamu Selera'.

    I stayed in Rizqun Hotel next to The Mall. I chose Rizqun purely due to its location which is near to the mall and activities surrounding it.

    The Mall reminds me of malls in KL perhaps 15-20 years ago, before the age of KLCC and Pavilion. The ambience was relaxed, almost homely.

    Lots of restaurants and food stalls.

    After walking through this very centrally located shopping center I went some floors up to the 'Food Court' (which has no separate entry in Tripadvisor), where there is a big choice in different type of meals.

    When I saw a place, which offered 'Ambuyat', the national dish of Brunei, I made my choice. At the counter I ordered an 'Ambuyat special', which came with 5 fried shrimps, 2 grilled small fishes, an omelet, boiled vegetables, raw carrots and cucumbers and 4 different kind of dips. And naturally in a separate bowl the famous Ambuyat, a very sticky colourless substance, made from the interior of a sago palm. To eat it one is given a special bamboo fork, called 'Chandas' like chop sticks attached to each other at one end, but not to be broken. There is no way to chew the Ambuyat, all one does, after having dipped it into a kind of Sambal Sauce, is to slowly swallow it. Quite fun and not too bad.

    The place is amazingly clean and the air is fresh. The place is safe for children to play and adults to jog.

    When walking down Jalan Kianggeh along the small river of that name towards the Tamu Kianggeh, the towns main market, I saw almost on the opposite of it the front of this not very big Chinese temple, apparently built in 1960.

    Chinese have been present in Brunei since centuries, mainly as merchants. The majority though came to work here after the discovery of oil in the 1920's, thus in Britsh times. Now with about 10% of the population they form the biggest minority in the country.

    The reflection over the water combined with the Mosque adjacent to it gives it even more character. Beautifully designed, and well worth stopping by.

    The trip consists of 2 boat rides into the pristine Temburong jungle. Option to stay over night in the Sumbiling ecovillage.

    We had a fantastic day and thoroughly enjoyed this almost untouched part of the world. The people taking care of us were exceptionally helpful and friendly.

    We had a great day and will definitely come back!
