“I am going to take you to the number one spot in Brunei to enjoy a sunset.”

This was what a resident of Tutong District proclaimed as he told me to drive to the tip of Kuala Tutong past the Old Ferry Jetty.

I was sceptical at first.

We arrived at 2 o’clock in the afternoon.

“Why are we going here so early?” I asked my guide as I wiped the sweat off my face.

“I want you to see firsthand how this place looks early in the afternoon. When we come back here at around 6pm, I want you to remember how this place looked before the sunset,” he said with a smile.

This was how the area looked at 2 o’clock in the afternoon

While waiting for the ideal time for the sunset, I visited the Eco Ponies Garden in Mukim Lamunin, about a 30 minutes’ drive from Pantai Seri Kenangan. (See story: Enjoy authentic kampong cuisine at Eco Ponies Garden)

After spending an afternoon at Eco Ponies Garden, I returned to the Pantai Seri Kenangan at 6pm.

I was disappointed when I returned at 6pm. It was cloudy!

But 10 minutes later … this happened. It was truly a sight to behold!

What do you think? Is this really the best spot to enjoy a sunset in Brunei?
