Your experience


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


This tour is for those who want to escape the normal tourist trail and experience the authentic rural life of some of the many people in Brunei. Although they live a very modern lifestyle today, my friends from the indigenous Dusun, Kedayan, Tutong and Iban peoples still uphold ancient traditions

The exact itinerary depends on who is in the community at what time, so every tour is different! We'll drive about an hour out on the town. The activities I undertake with guests include searching for jungle food, learning how to weave rattan, fishing for freshwater crayfish, tasting honey straight from the beehive, making ambuyat (Brunei's national dish), practicing tribal dances and much more

A highlight of the trip is always a delicious lunch of Dusun cuisine, freshly prepared and with many collected organic ingredients from the jungle, which you are guaranteed not to find anywhere else in the world.

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

Tamu Pasar Tutong - where different tribes offer food from the jungle on the market (Thursdays only)
Stingless beekeeping - see and taste a unique honey
Sago Processing Plant - see how Brunei's national dish, Ambuyat, is made from edible palm trees
Hunting for wild jungle food with Dusun tribesmen
Cooking bamboo chicken and Umbut on open fire
Tasek Merimbun - the largest black water lake in Brunei
Hike to a jungle waterfall
Iban tribe: Blowdart
Dusun tribe: traditional dance
Catch freshwater shrimp with Kedayans in a jungle river
See traditional crafts such as rattan weaving and machete making

I love to explore the less known areas of Brunei and meet new people, so I hope you will join me on my tour, which the locals from the city also enjoy visiting.
