  • Nothing too special here, statue was made by the citizen to celebrate the sultan’s 60 years of reign in the country. Just beside the tourist office so definitely just drop by the place for a photo.  more »
  • Riverside promenade with this sculpture. Apparently it displaced ferries and the locals mentioned that. There is room for boats and ferries if you ask me.....  more »
  • Deckard's 60-year-old monument was built for the 60 birthday of the Soviet city of Sribaga, a monument to the island's city centre of the Brunei River, a beautiful monument.
