  • Kampung Ayer (water villige) we were visiting with the boat. The entire expedition, (also for mangrove forests, around the Sultan's Palace) has cost us 50BND (5). Lasted for 2 hours. Kampung Ayer is impressive! This is the entire city on the water. Is here and school and a police station, as well as homes on stilts.

  • I've always been one of Ayer. Guide me, but I had been told it is rich even though Ayer from? It was. Brunei Darussalam in Japan does not class of rich isn't it? Type in home furnishings and kitchen equipment and modern stuff. Might want to see young people. Plank road surrounds the House is so fishing man, "last week I was eaten by crocodile night falls children" or is in Japan right now is unbelievable. Gave us sweets are simple and rustic. Of course, air conditioning. Southeast Asia is recommended if you want to feel the femininity.
