Within the city limits visit the majestic Golden mosque with its beautiful mosaic tiles and pure gold dome. Brunei is a great place for adventure activities like biking, whitewater rafting and reef diving in the South China Sea. Visit the beautiful lakeside walkways of Tasek Merimbun or relax on the shores of Muara beach without having to deal with the crowds of more touristy Asian destinations. Take an eco-tour to Temburong district and visit Ulu Temburong National Park to take a canopy walk. Suspended high above ground, the experience lends an amazing sense of peace and tranquillity.
