Mangrove River Safari

On this "relaxing" leisure boat ride, you will able to see the nostalgic Malay Water Village. We will be making a few stops under the natural mangrove trees and swamp. Look out for the birds and animal wildlife especially the rare and endangered proboscis monkeys that are only found in Borneo.<br><br>Optional Tours -<br>1.

This is not a training center. It’s not a museum. It’s a shop. Car parking free. At least you don’t need to take shoes off. But you can’t take pictures. Next door there’s a restaurant which was closed during the day. No cafe. There are no arts and crafts that you would want to buy.

Various types of handicrafts products such as weaving, silverware, hand-woven baskets, woodcarving were exhibited and on sales for both the preservation of traditional handicrafts and the training of artists and to encourage people to be active in the local production. Many items can be viewed or purchased.

I had a chance under a very heavy rain to go there to buy some handicrafts . This arts training center is located in Bandar Seri Begawan near water village but a little far from my hotel ( Centrepoint). In my opinion , the items were of high quality but very expensive and not with a much variety. You should know that the Brunei dollar is pegged on Singapore Dollar. However , you can find some items including dagger , traditional clothes , hats ....

It’s a huge building. There’s no training center to see. There’s a show room of a weaver:loom. Otherwise, it’s like a showroom of various stuff (baskets, batiks, wood, hats, brass). Expensive and nothing unique from Malaysia or Indonesia. But maybe there is nothing unique of Brunei, given its history with the other two countries. Really don’t bother going!

This place is simply a shop selling very very expensive handicrafts. Not a lot to look at but huge prices. I am sure the items are worth the price but I would not be paying those levels without some sort of research
