  • Can only take pictures from outside the fence. If you want to visit them, come to Brunei in the current Idul Fitri, you will have the opportunity to be shaken by the Sultan of Brunei. If you walk through the door of the Palace fence, you will see the beauty of the Brunei River disekitarannya

  • I do not know to the contrary, too. I stopped a little way from the hotel to the Gadong. I think it is worth going around taking photos in front. Was is called I'll have taken together in front of just anyone out? "no, it's come back soon" and said. Sorry but at the wrong time.

  • We took a boat to the monkey forest and past the house of the sultan. Very shinny :-) We also flow from the airport and great view from above. No entrance only 3 days after ramadan  more »

  • Design manifests culture, and culture rests firmly on the foundation of what we believe to be true about the world. Practical wisdom is only to be learned in the school of experience.
  • So sad cause not so much picture here, cause rain. :(
