Many travellers would jump at any opportunity to explore a rainforest! Rainforests are among the most fascinating environments in the world. During the day, these unique biomes burst with lively sounds and bright flashes of colour. At night, the air comes alive with the shrieks and calls of the forest’s many nocturnal creatures. In addition to being fantastic learning environments, rainforests are also ideal for leisure and relaxation. Visitors can find peace, rejuvenation, and joy in experiencing one of earth’s special environments. And creative people of all ages and from all walks of life can find inspiration for all types of art, like literature, sculpture, pottery, glassmaking, music and textile art.
In Brunei, we are fortunate to have easy access to one of the most beautiful, unspoilt rainforests at Ulu Temburong. This National Park offers both locals and visitors a great opportunity to experience the incredible diversity of flora and fauna found in the rainforest. Trekking along a jungle trail, visitors can see medicinal plants, which have been used by locals for many years; and those who dare to climb the 20 ladders and reach the top of the canopy walkway can marvel at Ulu Temburong’s rich variety of wildlife. If you’re lucky you may see gibbons swinging playfully in the canopy; hornbills flying overhead with their long beaks and colourful horns prominently displayed against the jungle backdrop; or even a flying squirrel leaping from tree to tree. But the canopy walkway is only part of this breathtaking experience that visitors to the park can have, the Ulu Temburong Resort also offers jungle hikes to see the park’s waterfalls; and night treks to experience the magical sounds and mysterious sights of the jungle. It’s the perfect way to spend time together with family or friends!
