Gadong Night Market, Bandar Seri Begawan Jan 01, 2015
My plan was to visit Gadong night market which was not so far away from my hotel where I was staying in Bandar Seri Begawan, about 10 - 15 minutes drive but I decided to take a water taxi for an exotic experience right after the sunset. It was perfect cruising through the river, the high tide helped to be able to dropped me off right next to the market.

The night market begins to get busy around 5 pm and closes around 10:30 - 11:00 pm. This a favorite place for Bruneian's for a wide range of affordable yet tasty local food, also a favorite meeting place for all walks of life.

The Key attraction of the Gadong night market was definitely the food vendors section. As i walked into this particular area, amazed to see rows after rows of stalls selling a wide range of local delicacies. It was interesting to see Chicken Wings or fish being grilled or cooked on banana leaves. it was mouthwatering to see freshly grilled lamb chops, beef Steaks.

The vendors were very friendly, came to know that BBQ chicken tail locally known as ‘Tong Keng’ is one of their favorite among the locals. I was little hungry but looking at all those delicious food I was totally lost, difficult to decide what to order from the choices of so many local delicacies such as Traditional Malay Kueh, Kelupis filled with either shrimp or beef, selurut and even tapai manis as well as the ever favorite chicken rice, fried noodles, not to mention the BBQ grilled chicken, lamb and fish.

Finally I settled down choosing my food but no place to sit in the night market so headed a little away from the market next to the river where I had my dinner over looking the beautiful suburb and the river in moonlight. It was 9:30 pm by the time i finished my dinner and time for me to return to the Jetty to get my return boat ride back to the city.

I really enjoyed being there for couple of hours and watching the activities on a busy weekend evening.
