This monument was built to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Sultan of Brunei. if you pay close attention you will see the number 60 written in Arabic. You will find photo opportunities facing the waterfront, with shops and restaurants close by.

It's so much smaller in person and only worth passing by if you're in the area! Quite gold and on the harbour front.

Don’t rush here but it is central and many of the speedboats are here for the floating villages. Nice promenade.

There are many attractions nearby and you might as well stop by this spot as you walk along the 'boardwalk'. The entire area is very relaxing and charming with the big park nearby as well as the mall and mosque!

Nothing too special here, statue was made by the citizen to celebrate the sultan’s 60 years of reign in the country. Just beside the tourist office so definitely just drop by the place for a photo.

Riverside promenade with this sculpture. Apparently it displaced ferries and the locals mentioned that. There is room for boats and ferries if you ask me.....

I hopped off the bus station and found this place. There are guys here that would ask you if you want to go on a guided tour. I politely declined and they never bothered me. It was an afternoon and it was beautiful to see...More
