Tourism Sector continues to be Active despite the COVID-19 Pandemic

Tourism is among the sectors most affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic that continues to impact on the world. Brunei Darussalam is not exempt from the virus but initiatives taken by the government of His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam and the related agencies, including tourism agencies have helped in reactivating the tourism sector, in particular domestic tourism. The encouraging response from the country's people and other residents towards domestic tourism packages and activities also helps and encourages local tourism agents to be more active in promoting their products at the domestic level.

The Brunei River Cruise is among the most popular tourism packages. One of the country's local tourism agencies, Straits Central Agencies receives almost 700 reservations for the Brunei River and Island Cruise since the package was first introduced last August.

The uniqueness of Bandar Seri Begawan offers many attractions to tourists. The country's capital is home to several historic locations and landmarks located within and around it.
