Scene of Muara Town

Tourist attractions in Brunei, Muara Town used to be busy with activity, but ever since the expansion of the Muara Port, the resettlement of the Kg. Majid Lama residents and possibly more police and army personnel living out of Muara area, the town became more quiet.


The expansion of Muara Port where the previous plan was to engulf the whole of Muara Town doesn't seemed to be materialized since the idea was mooted out and talked about for the last 20 years... Will the next 5 years realize that plan or maintain Muara Town as it is, remains a question.

Part of the original structure of the old shophouses (probably built during the 1960s) and the new ones (3 storey high) after a huge fire burnt 6 rows of the shophouses in the 1990s.

The old veg and fish market... only the fish market is still open though with only one or two fishmongers selling their fish there (the rest now go to Serasa Beach to buy their fish as fishermen made makeshift table to sell their fish fresh from the sea). As for the tamu, many moved out because infront of the petrol kiosk, the govt built a new tamu (below), apparently either the rent was cheaper or dont know what's the reasons, many prefer to go to the tamu below.

Towards the Muara roundabout, near to the fire bridgade, is the construction of Muara Town's tallest building. A flat supposedly built for the army personnel as the policy is now to move army personnel away from the camp (not to live in camps coz of security reasons). That's why some people say, to invest in shophouses is not good anymore as its better to built flats and rent it to the government... hehe... on the opposite side of the road, is the new Muara Town library which is just next to the Muara Town post office.
