The Quiet Capital of Brunei

Welcome to Bandar Seri Begawan (BSB), the quiet capital city of Brunei.

The first thing to catch your eye about this clean small city is the beautiful buildings, like the national palace, the gold spires of the mosques and museums, the red roofs of the water village Kampung Ayer, the banks, and more.

The second thing you will notice is how few people are around. Over the course of a 4 day visit in 2009, I only saw a handful of people. It often felt like I had the city to myself.
