Holiday Staycation at Badiah Hotel

Brunei is my second country I visited first was Japan, The time when I booked my ticket I was planning to celebrate the EidMurabak. I was searching on the internet for where to stay and luckily I found the badi'ah hotel while checking, the location of the place was not really in the center of Bandar Seri Begawan, but not a problem since the hotel was located about a kilometer to the King Palace. 

I arrived at Brunei International Airport around 10:10 pm from Manila, Philippines. Upon arrival, the staff of the hotel is patiently waiting for me holding a placard with my name. We headed to the departure exit since the shuttle service was parked. The two staffs who picked me up was so entertaining, they are much willing to help me plan my activities.
Badi'ah Hotel is located in Jalan Tutong It's just about 15 minutes’ drive from Brunei Airport and 5 minutes to the city center. The location of the hotel is really quite and few meters to the bus stop going to the center.
