  • 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.
