Kuala Lurah & Limbang (Towns at the border of Malaysia-Brunei)

Kuala Lurah is a small town that is located at the border of Sarawak-Brunei. From Bandar Seri Begawan of Brunei Darussalam, travel further up (to east) will take you to Tedungan, Limbang, Sarawak, Malaysia, as stated on the rubber stamp to be displayed in the passports of the cross-border travelers/passers-by.

Another 45-60 minutes journey will take you to Limbang town, Sarawak, which is a quite-developed town, with its own airport (so cool!!!). The airport is operated by MasWings (another branch of Malaysia Airlines – MAS). There is flight to Labuan and Miri, few times per week.

In my photo album in facebook, the last few photos are taken at Kuala Lurah, which is famous for its duty free status on alcoholic drinks. Basically, Muslims are not allowed to bring any alcohols into the country of Brunei Darussalam, while non-Muslim can do so, provided they carry amount which is limited, as stated in the Laws of Brunei Darussalam.

And quite-interestingly, as Kuala Lurah is at the border, Brunei Dollars are widely used here. The BBQ food are very famous, which include Kamping Madu (Honey Lamb), Honey Chicken Ass (Buntut ayam madu) and Dry Cuttlefish (Sotong Kering Bakar). For example, the price of a stick of “Kambing Madu” is B$0.50 or RM1.

Plus, to my surprise, some of the woman at the stalls will address the buyers as “monsieur” (which mean “Mr.” in French, and it has been accepted to be used in English also).
