More of an eat-and-go kind of person? The street markets of Brunei may just be right up your alley with an incredibly diverse range of tasty street food and flavorful snacks, and a wholesome and hospitable crowd to top the whole experience off.
Brunei’s legendary night market right on the outskirts of Gadong, with some dishes being sold for as low as BND1. Thanks to a seemingly endless variety of local snacks and dishes, from grilled meat on skewers, rice topped with chicken and sambal on the side and a whole lot more of Bruneian favourites, this is undoubtedly Brunei’s busiest and most buzzing night stop on any day. Just be ready to handle the smoke from nearby stalls though, as it can get quite hot and hazy at times.
Possibly the best place for a quick, affordable breakfast and a casual morning stroll, absorbing the sights and sounds of a thriving market. Located just along the Kianggeh River, Tamu Kianggeh sees daily visitors coming from all over Brunei for their fresh ingredients and homemade delights. But it’s the calm and relaxed atmosphere that they keep coming back for. Sometimes, if you’re lucky, you can even catch a live cultural performance of the gulingtangan(traditional brass musical instruments) on happenstance, when the hawkers are in a good mood or just looking to drum up some business.
Newly established and creatively constructed to captivate the attention of basically everyone! With its eclectic array of trending food and drinks and random contraptions here and there, the ambience is hard to resist for more than one Instagrammable photo to encapsulate one’s presence there.
