Transportation in Brunei
 
 
 

General

Three seaports, at Kuala Belait, Muara and Seria, offer direct shipping services to Hong Kong, Singapore and several other Asian ports. However, wharf facilities at the deepwater port of Muara, though expanded to about 550 m in the mid-1980s, remain inadequate. In 2005, Brunei had nine liquefied gas tankers. The Brunei River, which flows by the capital, is a major thoroughfare. However, the country's 209 km of navigable waterways are usable only by craft with a draw of under 1.2 m.

In 2008, there were 2,971 km of main roads, of which 2,411 km were paved. Links between the capital and the other western towns are good. Road connections between Brunei and Sarawak are being built. Buses are inexpensive but unreliable. River taxis and cars are for hire. In 2003, the sultanate had 73,500 passenger cars and 15,550 commercial vehicles registered.

As of 2012, Brunei operated one airport in the capital Bandar Seri Begawan; there were also three heliports. The national carrier, Royal Brunei Airlines, operates regular flights to Singapore, Hong Kong, Manila, Bangkok, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, and other cities.
