  • Trees were named , rest spots just where needed , marred only by my own stupidity by slipping and damaging my ankle . Was fun getting there in the local water bus ,  more »
  • To Temburong District go via boat and car from Bandar Seri Begawan. Further upstream the smaller ships. Boat meandering through the jungle, running into is the mean attraction. Destination is about 30 m above ground walkway, overlooking the jungle. Temburong District is within easy reach in a private enclave surrounded by Malaysia region, but not to participate in the eco-tour is recommended.

  • A nice national park. Many hiking possibilities. Be sure to have good footwear - it is slippery and a little steep some Places. The canopy is a challenge for many tourists - you have to ascend a steep...  more »

  • Best place to visit in Brunei by far. You take a boat to the resort, which is an experience in itself. Once you have travelled up the rapids, you can rest at the resort or take a hike up to the canopy walk. This is a once in a lifetime experience, and the view from the top is breathtaking. You can also go tubing on the river, or visit a small waterfall nearby. Guests are able to book into the hotel and stay overnight, or alternatively they can travel back the same day by river boat. Incredible day out - would definitely recommend spending the money to experience it.
  • River trip and raftings are quite common. However, Ulu Temburong National park is not crowded with tourists. The quiet & peaceful jungle add serenity to an awesome ride on long-boat to the Canopy Walk. The climb through the muddy jungle track is raw fun. The top of Canopy walk offers a breathtaking 360deg view of the primary jungle. It's calm is so surreal. The tour guides are sincerely helpful and well mannered. An unforgetable & safe day trip for the family.
  • Wow good place to go there
  • Wonderful untouched landscapes and scenery. Any tour through this area is a must if coming to Brunei.
  • This remote national park has some of the most pristine jungle in all of Borneo. The only way to get here is via a boat (and a water taxi to Bangar). The highlight of the park is the canopy tower.
