1. SULTAN OMAR ALI SAIFUDDIEN (SOAS) MOSQUE

In my opinion, the most picturesque mosque in Brunei with its marble columns and golden domes. This makes it stand out when the sky changes colour during sunset.

2. KAMPONG WASAN PADI FIELD

Away from the city, the padi field of Wasan is a unique spot to chase the sunset as it offers a beautiful green landscape. This gives a contrasting colour and view between the green padi and the golden sunset.

3. THE EMPIRE BRUNEI

A popular spot to see the sunset and also one of my favourites because of the beautiful surroundings especially the beach and palm trees.

4. RAJA ISTERI PENGIRAN ANAK SALEHA (RIPAS) BRIDGE

I really love capturing the iconic RIPAS bridge during the golden hour especially with the Brunei River and Kampong Ayer in the background. It just adds so much character and beauty to Bandar Seri Begawan.

5. MERAGANG BEACH

One of the most beautiful beaches in Brunei with its unique cave and rock formation, sand reflection and pier. A perfect spot to capture the beach landscape and beautiful sunset.

6. BILLIONTH BARREL, SERIA

An important monument that represents achievement, it is also a great spot to enjoy the sunsets because of the calm environment and beautiful beach.
