M.001: "I desire to grow old with you without paying." - Feb.04, 2014
Good hiking very steep hills and steps, nice place to come for a stroll to the waterfall as that part is flat there is a small play park for children and one of those outdoor gyms for adults. Lots of routes to take into the jungle for various levels of fitness. Overall a lovely park and they have coconut stalls outside for well deserved drink afterwards.
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.
The day trip to Temburong (Ulu Ulu, meaning "far away") begins by boarding a boat at a jetty opposite Kampong Ayer (BSB) and ends at a sky walk in the Temburong jungle. The last stage of the boat trip was stunningly beautiful and we were lucky enough to see otters on the river bank. The climb up to the sky walk is arduous but the view from the top is magnificent (there is the option of staying at a shelter if you don't feel up to the climb). #wintergetaway
