Travel Brunei Booklet Your Guide to Exploring the Sultanate


Increase in commercial photography and travel assignments made 2010 one of my busiest years to date. Adding to this the ensuing work of 2011 and 2012 you may be surprised to find me just recently posting pictures from two years back. I have had the pleasure of working with CHMP Media in selecting images from my archives and also photographing new ones for the official TRAVEL BRUNEI booklet which also includes pictures from a number of contributors.

Undiscovered. Unusual. Unexpected. One of the great joys of traveling to Brunei Darussalam is experiencing the unexpected. While our neighbor are exposed to mass tourism, Brunei remains largely undiscovered. The local culture is not diluted and the pace of life is blessedly slow. The peace and tranquility is favored by the many expats who call it home. For tourists on their journey through Asia, it makes a mellow alternative from bustling cities like Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. From urban experiences to national parks and sailing to underwater adventures, discover the beautiful and soulful side of this tiny Sultanate all within your holiday. And if you want to further indulge your wanderlust, other parts of Borneo are waiting to be discovered, all just a hop away from Bandar Seri Begawan.
