If you’re a birding and wildlife enthusiast, you can’t miss a stop at the nation’s biggest freshwater lake! Tasek Merimbun, which is located in Tutong District, is home to a plethora of bird species, including the Great Argus, the Black Crowned Night Heron and the Crested Serpent Eagle, among others. The S-shaped lake, surrounded by the 7,800-hectare Tasek Merimbun Heritage Park, is also uniquely dark in colour, caused by a phenomenon known as ‘tannin’, which is due to the leaves falling into the water. The park is also notable, as it was deemed the 11th ASEAN Heritage Park in 1984.
