7-hour transit at Bandar Seri Begawan

Me and my friend will have 7 hour transit around 17:30 to midnight on 26

1. Is it possible to visit downtown?

2. How much it cost if going by taxi?

3. Is there any option for public transportation?

Thanks!

Royal Brunei might have a City Tour for transit passengers!

Check them out. That is your best option if you are flying with them.

3. Taxi is only public transport.

Buses stop operating by 6pm.

Joining a tour package is your best option.

The other option is private transport or local hosting eg v, ia Hospitality Club.

Like any other cities, i guess there are "pirates" offering cheap transport, but I would not recommend them for obvious reasons!!!

Hi,

you can go to downtown by bus, $ 1 or also try to do hitchhiking. In Brunei a lot of people do it, but they charge $ 1. It's like bus price. Just ask for the price before going up to the car.

There you can visit the market, where you can eat "cheap" chicken rice ($ 1), infront of the market there is a chinesse temple: Teng Yuan Temple. Also is free visit the Royal Regalia Building and the Brunei History Center, both very interesting. And the mosque, you can go inside from saturday to wednesday from 8.30-12.00 and 13.30-15.00 and from 16.30 to 17.30. Thursday and Fryday just 16.30 to 17.30.

for more information, visit fuietimate and for more questions, just let us a comment.

have a nice day

To be specific, your flight arrives 5.30pm and departs 11.30pm

Upon arrival, take a lift into BSB and withdraw some cash from ATM in one of the banks in town.

Hire a decorated moped either at SOAS Mosque or Wharf BSB....

Drive along pedestrian walk all the way to Sungai Kebun Bridge.

Return moped

Dinner at Burger King + ice cream at Diary Queen OR any of the restaurants in town.

Return to Airport around 10pm ie close of shops in town.... Along the way drive past Istana Nurul Iman and Gadong Commercial Centre.

If you want to grab a light snack, stop by TK Sungai located opposite the Mall... TK offers fresh cucur ie fritters and satay by the Gadong River... They close at 3am.

Have a pleasant trip and cheers.
