Brunei Visit: 2015-12
2015-12-12 - 3 night visit to BSB by Gene (Terry) Johnson - 4 months ago My wife and I are staying in the centrally located Brunei Hotel. Its a 4 star, renovated and comfortable, with a nice buffet breakfast. Its a block N of the bus station which we have used each day; #36 to Tasek Lama Park, #39 to the Brunei Museum (under renovation), then walked 1 mile to the Maritime & Technology Museums, and #20 to the Mall/Jame'Asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque. They are medium sized buses with AC and cost 1B$ each. Our high points were; -meeting Mark Putera Delima and his wife Wann, markputeradelima@gmail.com They provide tours and the one we took was up the Brunei River to specifically see the endemic and endangered Proboscis Monkeys. We were able to observe 2 families of 10+ each up in the mangrove trees foraging and interacting for over 1 hour. Just an incredible experience, just like being with the Lowland Gorillas in DR of Congo and the Chimps along Lake Tanganika. Besides, we photographed a Salt Water Crocodile, Gold-ringed Cat Snake, 2 Rufous Night Herons, and many water birds. Mark is a naturalist guide and his wife is an excellent communicator speaking good English. -walking to all the city center sights to include Regalia Museum, the new Mall (4 blocks west near the pier) with a large supermarket in the basement, and discovering Babu's Kitchen clean with AC and inexpensive Asian food. The BWN airport was a quick 1B$ ea to our hotel and the hotel van provides the return transfer. This is our 215th TCC country and our first story! Gene and Terry Johnson, Dec 10, 2015.
