Who says there’s nothing to do in Brunei after dark? The Pasar Pelbagai Barangan Gadong—the venerable Gadong Night Market, now housed in a new 5,980sqm building— which opens nightly from 4 pm to midnight, curating the best of Brunei food and culture in the process. 

The night market is a key attraction of Brunei’s Gadong commercial district—the common-folk flipside to the nearby, more upscale The Mall. Make sure to come hungry, as food is the Night Market’s main draw: from local treats like roti beef, Brunei coffee, and sweet kueh melayu (pancakes with filling); to exotic fruits like durian. 

Part of the fun is in watching your food being cooked right in front of you—you’ll end with an utterly authentic Malay meal for no more than $2 USD!
