Brunei is a tightly-knit, conservative community filled with warm politeness, evident in the way we speak, dress and carry ourselves. There are also hidden wonders in the vast expanses of the rainforests!

The Community

A phrase that Bruneians are very familiar when it comes to community is ‘gotong-royong’, which essentially means working together. There are regular events for ‘gotong-royong’ to help with the upkeep of community-based places, such as cleaning campaigns for schools, mosques and town halls.

Brunei Arts and Handicraft Training Centre

The centre was established to preserve and revive the traditional arts and handicraft industry, and possesses some of the best examples of the nation’s handicrafts. Don’t miss the chance to view Brunei’s famous brocades, the ‘kain tenunan’, woven with golden and silver threads.
