Directions to Sumbiling Eco Village
Map & Directions
Due to the lack of a comprehensive public transport system in Brunei, especially in areas outside of Bandar Seri Begawan, we strongly recommend that you make transport arrangements with us for your convenience.
If arriving at Brunei International Airport:
1 - Take a public bus (purple in colour) from outside the Departure Hall on the 1st Floor (no fixed frequency, price B$1/pax/way) to the bus station in town, and from there, walk to the Kianggeh Jetty less than 200m away (if asking for directions, ask for how to get to �where the speedboats leave for Temburong�) OR, take a taxi from the Ground Floor Arrival Hall (cost B$25-30/taxi/way) to Kianggeh Jetty, Jalan Residency, Bandar Seri Begawan. Bus ride takes around 30-45 mins excluding waiting time, and taxi ride around 15-20 mins. Last bus at 5-6pm.
2 - At Kianggeh Jetty, check with the 2 available boat counters for the next available boat departure (no fixed frequency, price B$6/pax/way). Go for the next available boat, and do so by filling in your full name, nationality, gender and passport number on the boat list, pay for your fare and get your ticket, and wait for the boat to depart. Boat ride will take 45-50 mins. Last boat at 4.30-5pm, earlier during fasting month. Give ample time as boat schedules may change without notice.
3 - Upon arrival at the Bangar Jetty, ask at the boat counters for assistance to direct you to a �driver� or �taxi�. Negotiate and finalise the rate before boarding. You may also negotiate a return rate if you are sure of your departure date and time, but do not pay for this until the actual day. The usual rate ranges from B$20-40/car/way, and the ride will take around 25-30mins. Tell the person to take you to Sumbiling Eco Village, Kampung Sumbiling Lama.
4 - Upon arrival, if possible get driver to assist you in getting all the way to our lodge on foot. If driver is unsure, you may get him to take you to the Sumbiling Lama longhouse instead, and ask a villager to bring you to our lodge. If you have booked in advance, we should be expecting you!
