The not so typical side of Brunei Feb 22, 2009
The island of Barambang, even though remote is very easily accessed from the capital city of Bandar Seri Begawan. Take a water taxi that would cost you around 2 brunei dollars to get across and the ride only take about 10 minutes.

There is only one road on the island so getting lost is not really possible, unless of course you venture off road.

There is only one public transportation there and that is by an old van belonging to a man called Haji Wahab. The ride cost about 50 cent to a dollar. There is no taxi around and people get around by bicycle, motorbikes or by foot. The island is not that big and it takes about 1 to 2 hour walk to get from one side of the island to the other. There are only three shops selling only basic stuff and I could not find any official place to stay there overnight like a hostel or chalet so the only option is to campout or simply ask the generousity of the people there to let you stay overnight. There is also no restaurant there.

Places to see there are:

1) Bukit Bujang Pahang (hill)

2) Abandoned coal mine

3) Natural spring water

4) The bamboo water spout (try taking a shower there)

5) Batu Berpangkat (tiered rocks)

6) Gua Kelawar (Bat cave)

7) The amazing ariel view of Limbang, Malaysia and Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei.

Yeah it's really cool, what i like about it is that its been running.. non stop for ages! and there was no river around.

The abandoned coal mine was shrouded with its historical legacy..I just want to know if there is anyone out there who would be crazy enough to explore it.

Dunno if I fancy the abandoned coal mine, but the bamboo water spout sounds awesome!

Discovering the island of Barambang, Brunei Darussalam
My student suggested this place during our last Tourism club. He descibed the island as "very unusual" and that alone intrigued my curiosity. So we set to tour that island that weekend.
