Discover a charming water-bound village that has been home to thousands of people for over a millennium. Get a glimpse into the locals' way of life, travel on board a water taxi—just like they do—and sip a refreshing tea while taking in your unique surroundings.
Immerse yourself in Brunei's local traditions and culture as you board a typical water taxi to cross the river. Upon arrival in the village, your guide takes you to the Water Village Cultural and Tourism museum, where you are free to wander the various galleries, getting a glimpse of the history of the water villages.
After another short water taxi ride to reach Brunei Water Village, you can admire the lesser known side of the Istana Nurul Iman, the biggest residential palace in the world. Brunei Water Village is the largest of its kind and is a preserved national heritage site. It's home to 30,000 residents and a history traceable back over 1,000 years.
As you tour the village's walkways and bridges, your guide explains important details about this cluster of smaller villages and the roles of each chief, known as Ketua Kampung. Mingle with the locals as they go about their everyday lives before stopping at a local café for a refreshing tea and making your way back to your hotel.
