Brunei Darussalam


It was great to have finally met the Philippines-based team from the Singapore Tourism Board who are in Brunei to visit travel agencies and partners and it all began with an invite from Ramon, Assistant Manager of Tourism Business for the Philippines and Brunei. It was also the day I coincided the visit with some new and re-shoot for Borneo Insider’s Guide magazine. I also took the opportunity to acquaint both teams in hopes that a future collaborative effort would further promote Singapore and our humble Abode.

“Brunei is an important market for Singapore. Last year, 54,000 Bruneians visited Singapore. With the school holidays coming soon, it’s good to invite them and experience new things in 2011 like the Lion King, the ArtScience Museum, the integrated resorts, and new food and shopping outlets,” said Singapore Tourism Board’s outgoing Philippines and Brunei Area Director Lynelle Seow yesterday.

Photographs and story from the 2009 Singapore Tourism Board FAM Trip:

So Much Food So Little Time: Quoting The White Rabbit’s website, “a restaurant and bar housed in an awe-inspiring and beautifully-restored old chapel off the Dempsey area in Singapore. We serve a fresh take on both classic European comfort food and age-old cocktails all inspired by the past, while cleverly showcasing the present.”

Nocturnally Speaking: From festive lights-up and shopping in Orchard Road to culinary indulgence to 12-hour partying at ZoukOut, Singapore is better known for its nightlife. After hours, Singapore practically transforms itself from a super-efficient business hub to a buzzing network of pubs and nightclubs. People indulge freely in late night bar-hopping, leaving behind the burden of the day’s stress.

Inside the Singapore Flyer: Standing at stunning 165m, the Flyer is the height of a 42-storey building – that’s some 30 metres taller than the famed London Eye. Taking a flight on this S$240 million dollar wheel is a one-of-a-kind experience you wouldn’t want to miss. It’s the only place to see Singapore’s magnificent cityscape or nightscape!
