I planned to visit this majestic architecture both on day time and night time. I couldn’t wait to capture it’s beauty specially at night. The famous long exposure shot in photography to capture a dramatic night scene.
Kampung Ayer (kampung = village, ayer = water in Bahasa) is a water village in Brunei’s capital city – Bandar Seri Begawan and is situated along Brunei River. The village is the home of 39,000 people of Brunei which is around 10% of the population. Built entirely on stilt houses connected with wooden walkways, the village also has hospital, schools, mosques, restaurants and retail shops. They even have a water system.
My ASEAN travelogue will not be complete if I skip this grandiose sultanate state. It was my 3rd solo backpacking trip outside Malaysia and Philippines. I know there’s nothing much to expect in this rich majestic state. So, I just planned to turn this trip into a relaxing weekend trip. Yes, it is just an overnight trip.
