Getting around Brunei is rather easy considering the key places of interest are quite near to each other. The capital Bandar Seri Begawan is located 15 minutes away from the airport and is easily accessible by public transport. Alternatively, you can download Brunei’s very own ride-booking app, Dart, for a more flexible option of getting around. Once you’re in the capital, the main areas of attraction are all within walking distance from one another. Always make sure to stay hydrated in the Bruneian heat and wear lots of sunscreen if you’re out and about! Check out ‘How to get around Brunei’ on other ways to get around Brunei.
