I find the history and the different cultures of Brunei fascinating. Let me take you on a journey into the past and teach you everything about our history from the 16th to the 19th century on this personal tour.
Our first stop is the Archaeological Park of Brunei, where artifacts from the Golden Age of this land were discovered - a time when only the nobility lived on land and everyone else lived in the water villages! Then we take a leisurely walk (or drive if it is too hot or too wet) to visit the Maritime Museum, where a 16th century shipwreck can be seen.
Next we visit the Malay Technology Museum, which contains the life of bygone times in the water village Kampong Ayer and shows different technologies of some indigenous tribes, like the Dusun, Murut, Penan and Kedayan peoples.
Our last visit is to the Brunei History Centre, which will bring you closer to the history of the Golden Age - a time when Brunei was the centre of the spice trade and fought with the many European imperialists. Here, you can also see the correspondence between the sultans of the 19th century and the Brookes (the British "White Rajahs" of Sarawak).
Don't forget that this is your private tour, so we can pause whenever and wherever you want. My suggested itinerary includes the 4 hours, but if you want to do or see something else (visit other museums, souvenir shopping etc.), just let me know and we will find a solution.
