Discover the best things to do in Brunei  

Take a break from meetings at Radisson Hotel Brunei Darussalam to discover fun things to do, such as visiting the Pottery House and Water Village Gallery. From the hotel, you can see the domed roof of the Royal Regalia Museum, which is just a five-minute walk away. The museum showcases exhibits that reflect the Silver and Golden Jubilees of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah’s rule in addition to displaying royal gifts, weapons, and crowns. Head to the open-air Kianggeh Market to look for souvenirs and for its food stalls. Take a water taxi to get between distant points of Kampong Ayer, an ancient village of 30,000 people along the shore of the Brunei River. Tranquil Tasek Lama Recreational Park, about a 10-minute walk from the hotel, offers waterfalls, jungle trails, and cheeky macaques in the trees. You can also take our hotel's free shuttle to the Yayasan, Hua Ho Kiulap, and Gadong shopping centers.
