Kampong Ayer and long-nosed monkey tour

This is a combination of the Water Village trip and Proboscis Monkey Cruise on the ‘water taxi’ through the Brunei Rivers. Guests are picked up from their hotels and transferred to the jetty in the capital city to board a local boat, crossing the river for a visit to the world's largest Malay water village. This is followed by a walk around the water village and a visit to a local house where light local refreshment will be served.

The tour continues with a boat ride and cruise along the Brunei River observing villagers' life and enjoying the view of the modern Brunei over the other side of the river bank. The cruise continues further up the river, where guests will see the world's largest residential palace - Nurul Iman.

Next, guests visit the mangrove forest where they have the opportunity to encounter marine life – the mudskipper, river otters and birds such as the white egrets, nigh herons, kingfishers, among the mangrove forest. As the boat cruises along one of the tributaries, stops will be made for spotting the rare endangered species primate – the proboscis monkey, who normally rest on the branches of mangrove trees. The monkeys normally come near the river early in the morning and at dusk. The cruise then heads back to the jetty.
