Kampong Ayer (water village) on the Brunei River.
I’ve always been fascinated with 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 water village on the Inle Lake in Myanmar (Burma) as well as the Mekong Delta in Vietnam and many more. I must say that Kampong Ayer is very well kept and organised.
Walking and cruising around Kampong Ayer or water village on the Brunei River was a delightful experience which I would suggest to anyone. Watching the local water villagers setting the fishing net before the high tide was another charming encounter.
I’ve already been to Borneo twice, one time in the Malaysian part and this time in the Sultanate of Brunei. I can say that it has the best sunsets of the planet, almost everyday.
I took these photographs while visiting the Brunei River by boat. On the way back to the capital Bandar Seri Begawan the sky became surreal with strong magenta and orange colours.
