Kampong Ayer (Water Village) on the Brunei River. Brunei
I’m always fascinated by water villages in Southeast Asia like Kampong Ayer on the Brunei River.
For instance, the floating village on the Tonle Sap Lake in Cambodia. The old Chinese Waterfront Settlement on Penang in Malaysia.
Also, the floating farms on the Inle Lake in Myanmar (Burma) as well as the Mekong Delta in Vietnam and many more.
I must say, Kampong Ayer is very well kept, clean and organised.
Walking around Kampong Ayer (water village) on the Brunei River is a delightful experience which I would suggest to anyone.
To watch the local villagers setting the fishing net before the high tide is another charming encounter.
Cruising around the meandering wooden stilt footpaths through the water village relaxes me a lot.
Later, I left the water village of Kampong Ayer to visit the Brunei River by boat. Wonderful experience!
I saw Proboscis monkeys on mangrove trees. They live on the island of Borneo only.
I’ve already been to Borneo twice. The first time, Sabah, in the Malaysian part and this time in the Sultanate of Brunei.
I have to admit, it has great sunsets, almost everyday!
The sky all over the water village Kampong Ayer suddenly became surreal with strong magenta and orange colours on the way back to the capital Bandar Seri Begawan.
