    I never been there; but I read the AirAsia magazine before (Travel 3Sixty) features about Brunei. The jungle is part of the main attraction.

    all based on my army training days..

    - temburong area is mostly forested.
    - jerudong play park, big and secluded, but quite fun actually
    - water taxi
    - the rest forgotten liao

    Probably sound bias but I think you'll get to see lots of "unexpected treasures" in Brunei. Several mosques, the Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien and the Jame' Asr to name two of the bigger mosque. Kg Ayer (Water village) has several places, locations of interest, you can take a boat taxi to make a round around the village.

    Flickr is a good site to look for sample photos of Brunei.

    Hope you have a good time in Brunei
