Many eco-tours go by boat to the Temburong region and then to a local “community home.” Then a motor boat (driven by locals) takes you upstream to the Belalong National Park, a refuge in the Borneo rainforest. At the park headquarters, there is a canopy walk as well as a research facility.

Jerudong Park used to be a good theme park with a lot of attractions. Unfortunately, a downward spiral of carelessness, decreasing admission, and unsustainable maintenance expenses led to the closure and sale of the majority of the key attractions, including the three roller coasters. This has given the area a melancholy air of “the circus city departed last week.” Most visitors come at night to escape the heat of the day. There is a tiny restaurant complex outside the park, but quite nearby, that is open at night, but just a few stalls are still operating. Local media announced intentions to rebuild the park and add additional attractions.

Scuba diving

Brunei has excellent diving. Brunei, in addition to corals and fish, is home to numerous wrecks and a plethora of nudibranch species, making it one of the finest locations in Southeast Asia for macro photography. The water temperature is usually about 30 ° C, and visibility is usually between 10 and 30 meters, but this may vary during the monsoon season. Because the diving here is not overdeveloped, the locations, particularly the coral reefs, remain in pristine condition.

Blue Water Wreck, an 80m trawler that gets its name from the blue water surrounding it and is fully intact, is a popular diving destination. Cement Wreck, a 2,687-ton Japanese ship that collided with a sandbar while carrying cement in 1980. She is 92 meters long and has a sleeve length of 15 meters. The freighter is easily penetrated and is at a vertical posture in the bottom section at 30 m. In 1949, while on its way to Manila, the Australian Wreck was struck by a mine in front of Brunei and sunk. The shipwreck is 85 m long and 33 m wide, and it is situated in 33 m of water. Experienced divers will appreciate investigating the shipwreck’s innards. Rig Reef is a decommissioned oil platform. There are 9 structures to investigate, each of which seems to house a dominating group of fish.

Dive costs are affordable, ranging from $ 35 to $ 45 each dive, depending on the number of dives and if you carry your own equipment.
