Bangar

Getting there & away

Local transport

Taxi

Temburong has two main roads; both are sealed but traffic is light. One leads south to Batang Duri and the other runs between the east and west borders with Sarawak. Private and unofficial taxis are the only form of transport in the district, and drivers congregate near the wharf. They don’t have meters, and prices must be negotiated.

Taxis go to Limbang in Sarawak for about B$15. There’s no border post, so make sure you stop at the immigration office in Bangar before leaving Brunei. Report to immigration in Limbang.

A taxi to the eastern Sarawak border costs B$30. You may be able to persuade the driver to take you all the way to Lawas, but this will cost around B$80, including a stop at the Bangar immigration office.

Bicycle

Cycling is a great way of getting around this corner of Brunei, and there’s not even that much traffic to get in your way. You can hire bikes from the Maryani camping shop next to the tourist office for B$30 per day.

Boat

From BSB, speedboats (B$6, 45 minutes) leave from the wharf near the food centre when they’re full. Boats run in either direction between 7am and 5pm; you shouldn’t usually have to wait very long.
