Water Village and Proboscis Monkey

Tour Code : PBH03

Duration : 3 hours

You will be taken on a scenic boat ride to the world’s largest water village. The Water Village perched on the Brunei River and home to around 30,000 people. Even for centuries ago, the size and complexity of Brunei Water Village greatly impressed the Magellan expedition which received a stately welcome upon entering Brunei Bay in 1521. Although most of the houses on stilts are now furnished with every modern amenity, the tranquility and serenity of a typical Malay village remains. Tea/ Coffee with local delicacies will be served in a house in the Water Village. Next the water taxi will take you to mangrove forest in search of the Proboscis Monkey.
