Cheap food is easily to be found here. Thus, if you want to find a hotel at Bandar Seri Begawan, you can consider to find a hotel nearby this market so that you can avoid paying for the breakfast at the hotel. You can also find other traditional foods at the market

I happened to come across this market while exploring the other attractions in Bandar Seri Begawan. Early in the morning at about 8.30 am, my Bruneian friend alighted me at the famous Omar Ali Shaifuddin Mosque. I spent quite sometime taking photos at this mosque.From the mosque, I walked to the Yayasan Complex and the waterfront and took a boat... More

Located at one edge of the city center, this wet (kitchen) market hugs the bank of the River (Sungai) Kianggeh just before it joins up with the larger River Brunei (the river front downtown). Officially known as Tamu (friend of) Kianggeh, this market seems to be the only outlet for fresh produce in Bandar Seri Begawan. Activity starts here at... More

Not one bit like our supermarket but at least the food available was fresh. An exotic mix of fish, fruits and vegetables on offer, half of which we didn't recognise or would know what to do with.

This is a must see attraction. The sheer variety of foodstuffs on display boggles the mind and tantalises the tastebuds. All one's senses are engaged- visual, auditory, olfactory-you name it ! The personnel at the wet market were ultra-busy, engaged in their daily living, but not so much so that they could not be gracious to a tourist like myself-... More

We were amazed how busy the market was and the locals are so friendly. Don't miss it. It is so clean and all the sights and smells (nice smells) were amazing.

This market established along the banks of the river was an interesting mix of sights, sounds, and smells. All types of vegetables and seafood were on display for sale. And the water taxis were continually picking up & delivering customers.

My wife and I visit local markets at every opportunity - and we really enjoyed our visit to the Open Air Market. It's predominantly a food market - but gives a great sense of the local food eaten in the area - and everything appeared so fresh. It was great to interact with the locals too. Also, from the market... More
