About Bandar Seri Begawan

Bandar Seri Begawan is the capital of the Sultanate of Brunei with a population of around 74 thousand. The city is the production center of textiles, furniture, and lumber, and has the distinction of being the largest city in the country. The city, which is formally known as Bandar (Town) Brunei, is home to the world’s largest palace, the Istana Nurul Iman. The palace is actually in the Guinness World Record list and is the residence of the sultan of Brunei.

The Istana Nurul Iman palace is also home to the Prime Minister’s office and other government offices. The city has a tropical rain forest climate, so the weather is hot and humid. This type of climate means a high rate of rainfall from December to March and generally high temperatures. The temperature remains the same throughout the year, with an average varying between 20 and 30 degrees. The majority of the urban population is made up of Malays; the Chinese constitute the most important minority group in the city. The Bisaya, Belait, Dusun, Kedayan, Murut, and Tutong are the aboriginal groups that are considered part of the Malay ethnic group. Among places to see in the city are the Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque, the Royal Mausoleum, Brunei Museum, Malay Technology Museum, and the Brunei History Center. 

Transportation to Bandar Seri Begawan City Center from Airport


Brunei Intl. Airport

Passengers arriving at Brunei International Airport can use the buses that are located just outside the airport which only carry passengers to the city during daylight hours or you can take a taxi. In Brunei, taxis are much more expensive than buses, but you have the chance to reduce your fare slightly by sharing these vehicles from the airport with other passengers. Apart from taxis and airport buses, in advance you can book a rental car in Brunei and collect your car in front of the airport and take advantage of a journey of around 15-20 minutes to the city center.


From Brunei International Airport, whatever time you land at the airport you have a chance to travel to the city center by taxi. The taxi journey from airport to center in Brunei will take about 20 minutes. Although it is only a short distance of 4 kilometers to get to the city center, you may need to pay around 25 Brunei Dollars in a taxi. Despite the short distance in between, the high taxi prices tend to lead visitors to use buses instead of taxis at the airport. However, when considering the options of taking the bus, you should remember that these affordable vehicles only operate between morning hours and 18:00.


To travel to the city center for cheaper from Brunei International Airport, you can use the buses that transit passengers for just a few Brunei Dollars. The purple coloured buses start their journey towards the city center in the morning. The last bus is at 18:00. After this time if you can not find a bus when you land at the airport, you can look for a taxi or rental car to take you to the city center. It is possible to travel from Brunei International Airport to the city center by using buses 23, 36, 24 and 38. You may be expected to pay for the bus ticket in Brunei Dollars. Therefore, before leaving the airport terminal and taking the bus or taxi, do not forget to convert some of your money into the local currency of the country.

Rent A Car

After landing at Brunei International Airport, those who want to continue to the center with a rental car can choose one of the companies such as Elsie, Hertz, AVIS and Roseraya, which serve those who want to rent a car in the region. Rental car companies are usually located in the city center and not at Brunei International Airport. Therefore, passengers who prefer a rental vehicle should make the necessary rental reservations in advance and inform the rental company about the time they are due to land at the airport.
