Kampung Ayer or Water Village is a cluster of several Malay villages built on stilts in the water over the Brunei River - with wooden houses, shops, schools, mosques etc. 30,000 Brunei citizens live in the Water Village. Private water taxi (long wooden speed boats) provide rapid transportation mode for the villagers. I guess we can refer this Kampung Ayer as "Venice of the East".
Huge wooden house on stilts. I wonder how many people stay in this huge house. Does this belong to a big family?
While walking on the wooden boardwalks, I saw 2 fishes swimming in the river. (Points to remember.. Must look up, look down, look infront, look sideway, look at the right side and left side when walking (in summary, look everywhere.. ) Too bad I haven't master the skill of looking behind while walking :P )
House on stilts with jetty extension. There is a water taxi (long wooden speed boats) not far away from the jetty.
Modern amenities are available, including electricity, water supply, sewer systems, air conditioning, astro and satellite tv, and internet access too!
Almost every household has Astro and some have Satellite TV facilities.
Would you take this "shortcut" to visit the neighbour next door? I guess I won't. ( I scared I might accidentally trip and fall into the river, hahhaha..
