Muara (Bandar Seri Begawan), Brunei
The port of Muara is located 17 miles east of Bandar Seri Begawan, the only town of any size in the country. It is a neat, modern city, split into three main areas: the “old” 1950s-built central area, which is being redeveloped with new buildings around the Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque; the Seri Complex, a commercial area on the way out to the Sultan’s palace, which dates from the 1970s; and Gadong, with its newly built shopping center and numerous restaurants. BSB, or simply Bandar as the capital is commonly called, still features a sprawling maze of wooden houses built on stilts along the Brunei River. Muara is mainly known for its spectacular beach and fish market. On a clear day there are fine views across to Mount Kinabalu.
