Are USD accepted in Brunei?

The Brunei dollar is the official currency, and transactions are typically done in this currency. However, US dollars are also widely accepted, especially in hotels, large retail outlets, and some restaurants catering to tourists. 

Tourist-oriented businesses commonly accept USD, but it’s always good to have some Brunei dollars on hand for smaller purchases, local markets, and places that might not accept foreign currencies. 

Remember, when paying in USD, the exchange rate might not always be in your favour, and change is usually given in Brunei dollars.

Can I use the Brunei dollar in Singapore?

Yes, the Brunei dollar and Singapore dollar are interchangeable at par. This unique agreement allows you to use Brunei dollars in Singapore just like the local currency and vice versa.

Are credit cards accepted in Brunei?

Yes, you can use your credit and bank cards in Brunei. However, it’s wise to have a mix of cash and cards. Smaller shops and local markets prefer cash, while larger stores and hotels usually accept cards.

Tip: Inform your bank about travel plans to avoid card issues abroad.

Should I use cash in Brunei?

Though Brunei is gradually embracing cashless payments, cash is still valuable for smaller transactions. ATMs are widespread, making cash withdrawals easy.

In Brunei, it is advisable to balance cash and card payments. Use cash for minor purchases and save the card for bigger spending.

If you have any leftover Brunei dollars from your trip, Manor FX can convert them back to pounds sterling.

Is it best for us to use cash or cards in Brunei?

In Brunei, credit and debit cards are widely accepted in most establishments. However, it’s good to have cash for smaller purchases and in places that don’t accept cards.

How much cash should I take to Brunei?

Enjoying Brunei can be budget-friendly, whether you’re backpacking, seeking mid-range comfort, or indulging in luxury. Here’s a guide to managing your budget in this serene sultanate.

Backpacking Brunei budgets

Daily budget: Around 35 BND (£20). This could cover a hostel bed, local meals, public transport, and free sights like mosques and parks. Remember, hostels start from about 25 BND (£18), and meals can range from 7 to 15 BND.

Mid-range budget

Daily budget: Approximately 70-100 BND (£40-£60). Staying in comfortable hotels, eating out, enjoying a few drinks, taking taxis occasionally, and visiting paid attractions like museums could fit this budget.

Luxury budget

Daily budget: 150 BND (£85) and upwards. You’d need to budget generously for a luxurious experience that includes fine dining, taxis, top hotels, and any tours that catch your eye.

Can I avoid ATM fees in Brunei?

To save on ATM fees in Brunei:

  • Check if your bank has partnerships with local banks for free withdrawals.
  • Withdraw more significant sums less often to reduce transaction fees.
  • Look for ATMs with lower fees.

Do you tip in Brunei?

Tipping isn’t customary in Brunei. Restaurant bills usually include service charges, so no extra tipping is required. Brunei keeps it simple: enjoy the service without the tipping fuss.

Is Brunei expensive?

Brunei can be considered relatively expensive compared to some other Southeast Asian countries, but this depends on your lifestyle and how you choose to spend your time and money. 

Accommodation, dining in restaurants, and specific activities can be pricier, similar to costs in Western countries. However, there are also ways to explore Brunei without spending a lot.

Eating at local markets, using public transportation, and enjoying the country’s natural and cultural sights, many of which are free, can make your visit more affordable.

Like any travel destination, careful planning and budget management can help you control costs and enjoy your visit to Brunei.

The Singapore dollar and the Brunei dollar are interchangeable at par because of an agreement between Singapore and Brunei.

This unique arrangement, established in 1967, allows for the two currencies to be used interchangeably in both countries at a one-to-one exchange rate. 

This was part of a Currency Interchangeability Agreement aimed at promoting bilateral trade and strengthening the economic ties between the two nations.

This agreement means that in Brunei, you can use Singapore dollars just like Brunei dollars, and the same goes for using Brunei dollars in Singapore. 

This handy setup for travellers between the two countries ensures ease of transactions and financial exchanges without worrying about currency conversion rates. 

However, the currencies remain distinct in terms of issuance and regulation by their respective countries’ monetary authorities.

Whether you need a visa to enter Brunei depends on your nationality. Many countries have visa-exemption agreements with Brunei for short visits, including most European Union member states, the United States, and some countries in Asia and the Pacific.
Citizens from these countries can enter Brunei without a visa for tourism or business purposes for stays ranging from 14 to 90 days, depending on the country.

For travel to Brunei, there aren’t typically any mandatory vaccinations required for entry. However, it’s always wise to be up-to-date with routine vaccinations before any international travel.

The best time to visit Brunei is during the dry season, typically from January to May. During these months, you can enjoy lower humidity, less rainfall, and more sunshine, making it ideal for exploring outdoor attractions, such as Ulu Temburong National Park or Brunei’s beautiful beaches.

The weather in Brunei is generally hot and humid year-round, but the dry season offers more comfortable conditions for sightseeing and outdoor activities. Remember that this can also be a popular time for tourists, so you might encounter more visitors at major attractions.

Brunei’s wetter season is from June to December, with the highest rainfall usually occurring between September and January. While the wet season brings more rain, it usually comes in heavy, short bursts, so it’s still possible to enjoy your visit during these months, especially if you’re prepared with appropriate rain gear and a flexible itinerary.

Regardless of when you visit, Brunei’s rich cultural heritage, stunning mosques, and lush rainforests provide a memorable experience. If you’re interested in cultural events, check the local calendar for festivals and public holidays, which can add a unique layer to your travel experience.

Brunei is best known for its immense wealth derived from extensive petroleum and natural gas fields. The country’s affluence is evident in its well-developed infrastructure, high standard of living for its citizens, and the opulence of its royal family. 

Here are some highlights:

  • Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque: This stunning mosque, with its golden dome and marble structures, is a major landmark in Bandar Seri Begawan. It’s a symbol of Brunei’s Islamic faith and a key attraction for visitors.
  • Ulu Temburong National Park: Often referred to as the “Green Jewel of Brunei,” this national park is accessible only by boat and is known for its pristine rainforest, rich biodiversity, and the Canopy Walkway, offering spectacular views from above the treetops.
  • Royal Regalia Museum: This museum showcases the opulence of Brunei’s monarchy. It has a vast collection of regalia, including the Sultan’s coronation carriage and many gifts received from dignitaries and heads of state.
  • Istana Nurul Iman: The official residence of the Sultan of Brunei, this palace is the largest residential palace in the world and is particularly noted for its grandeur.
  • Water Village (Kampong Ayer): This historical settlement on the Brunei River is known as the “Venice of the East.” It’s a cluster of traditional stilt houses and communities, showcasing a way of life that has endured for centuries.
  • Oil and gas discovery centre: Reflecting Brunei’s economic backbone, this interactive centre educates visitors about the science and technology behind oil and gas extraction.
  • Bruneian Cuisine: The local food is a delicious blend of Malay, Chinese, and Indian influences, often featuring seafood, rice, and aromatic herbs and spices.
  • Peace and stability: Brunei is known for its high security and stability, making it a safe destination for tourists.

Brunei’s unique combination of stunning natural beauty, opulent Islamic architecture, and tranquil lifestyle makes it a fascinating place to visit.
