With a face only a mother could love, the Proboscis monkey's personality makes up for its unflattering visage. Search for their funny faces on this Brunei tour that also takes in the world's largest residential palace, because you can't be Sultan without 1,788 rooms!

Time to get up close and personal (well, not too close!) with the legendary Proboscis monkey, one of Brunei's most distinct inhabitants.

After picking you up from your hotel, our Brunei river tour starts at the boat jetty in the heart of Bandar Seri Begawan, where you'll board an open deck wooden boat and cruise along the river sightseeing from the water level.

As we float along, you'll get a view of two different worlds: on one side you'll see the modern developing capital city of Brunei, and on the other side of the river, you'll see the traditional style water village, the biggest of its kind in the world.

Your Brunei tour will also pass the biggest residential palace in the world, Istana Nurul Iman. With an immense 1,788 rooms, the palace is the official residence of His Majesty, The Sultan of Brunei, and a favourite Brunei tourism highlight. 

After passing the Royal Palace, we continue our wildlife tour in Brunei as we cruise slowly under the mangrove trees and get a close up look at the marine life that lives here. See mudskippers, monitor lizards, and with luck spot blue-throated or red kingfishers. The white egret and night heron are also common sights in the mangroves.

Keep an eye out for the rare, endangered Proboscis monkey, which usually comes to the water in the early morning and evening, and can provide some perfect Borneo wildlife travel pictures! The monkeys are very distinctive with their odd, brightly coloured nose, and can only be found on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra in Indonesia. Hopefully you will see at least five to ten families of around 20 monkeys per family.

After a visit with the Proboscis monkeys, we'll head back to the jetty in Bandar Seri Begawan and we'll transfer you back to your hotel in Brunei.
