Cheap flights to Brunei

Brunei, a Southeast Asian country on the north coast of Borneo, is one of the wealthiest nations, thanks to its abundance in petroleum and gas reserves. Its capital and largest city, Bandar Seri Begawan, is the usual jump-off point to any Brunei trip.

As the only airport servicing the country, Brunei International Airport is well-maintained and equipped with modern facilities including free WiFI, dining and retail shops, banking services, transit day rooms, and a prayer room.

Why plan a trip to Brunei

Aptly called the ‘Abode of Peace’, Brunei boasts of tranquil surroundings and lush nature you can immediately witness as soon as you land from your Brunei flight and step out of the airport. The capital city of Bandar Seri Begawan will already give you incredible Brunei trip experiences – from the majestic Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque to Kampong Ayer, the largest stilt village in the world. As the country is heavy on Islamic influences, expect to see many religious structures and Islamic practices being observed here.

A Brunei trip is not complete without delving deeper into its pristine rainforests. Be sure to go on a nature trip to Ulu Temburong National Park and Bukit Patoi Forest Reserve. They are world-renowned protected nature reserves of Brunei. Cap off your outdoor adventure by tasting ambuyat, Brunei’s national dish made up of sago from the rumbia tree. Also, Brunei celebrates its National Day every February 23. It is a recommended time to book your Brunei flights, join in the festivities, and immerse in the local culture.
