Tip: Either staying overnight or going on a day trip, it is better to contact a travel agent to arrange your visit. While it is easy to get to Bangar town from Bandar Seri Begawan, one cannot get into Ulu Temburong National Park from there if you don't have prior appointment. Do take note that the park management and Brunei Tourism control the number of people that could access the park to maintain its sustainability.

Also, contacting a travel agent will prepare you for what to expect as well as what to bring for your stay as well as the cost that you need to shoulder for the tour. For sure, Ulu Temburong National Park is not for budget travel. It could come a little costly for some travelers but for sure, the experience will be so worth it.

Why Camp Overnight?

To get to Ulu Temburong National Park, one has to take a speedboat from Bandar Seri Begawan for 45 minutes to Bangar town then a van transfer for 20 minutes and finally another 20 minutes or so ride through longboat. while transportation in Brunei for this route is efficient, the transfer could prove an inconvenience. It is best that you camp here overnight to save on the hassle. That way, you can go for other adventure activities inside the National Park such as water tubing, waterfalls visit and Belalong canopy walk.

Also another highly suggested activity that you cannot do unless you camp overnight is "night walk". This is no simple night walk, you walk through the thick jungle in the dark of night with torch lights and and marvel at creatures that one can find only at night. Be amazed by the diversity of animals one can find lurking at trees and on the ground the virgin forest of Borneo can offer.

As icing top the cake, one can also easily plan a visit to Belalong Canopy Walk for an awesome sunrise or an epic sunset!
