Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei Darussalam - The flight - Part 01

I was invited to present two papers at an event in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei Darussalam organised by the IDB. Took a Royal Brunei airline from KLIA. It was the last flight into the airport which arrived at midnight.

Beautiful and modern airport. However, it does not operate 24 hours and when I arrived, the terminal was closing down for the day. Everything was being turned off. 


Waited for my airport transfer to the hotel.
