Your experience


  • •Hike to a jungle waterfall
  • •Traditional crafts such as rattan weaving and machete making
  • •Traditional dance


This tour is for those looking to escape the normal tourist trail and experience the authentic rural life of some of the many peoples of Brunei. Even though they're living a very modern lifestyle these days, my friends from the indigenous people sDusun, Kedayan, Tutong and Iban still keep old traditions alive.

The exact itinerary depends on who's around in the community at the particular time, so every tour is different! We travel about an hour from the city. Activities I have taken guests to experience include looking for jungle foods, learning rattan weaving, fishing for freshwater crayfish, tasting honey direct from the hive, seeing how ambuyat (Brunei's national dish) is made, practising tribal dances and more.

A highlight of the trip is always a delicious lunch of Dusun cuisine, freshly prepared and using many organic ingredients from the jungle.You are guaranteed some tastes you'll find nowhere else in the world.

The information below lists some of the things we can see and do (obviously we cannot do them all in one day, but we try to cover at least 3 of these activities):

  • Tamu Pasar Tutong - where different tribes and jungle foods come to market (on Thursdays only)
  • Stingless Bee farm - see and taste a unique tasting honey
  • Sago processing farm - see how Brunei's national dish, Ambuyat is made from edible palm trees
  • Foraging for wild jungle foods with Dusun tribesman
  • Cooking Bamboo Chicken and Umbut on an open fire
  • Tasek Merimbun - the largest blackwater lake in Brunei
  • Hiking to a jungle waterfall
  • Iban tribe: Blowdart
  • Dusun tribe traditional dancing
  • Catch freshwater prawns with Kedayan tribesmen in a jungle river
  • See traditional crafts such as rattan weaving and machete making

I love discovering the lesser known parts of Brunei and meeting new people, so I hope you join me on my tour that even the locals from the city enjoy to come to.
