Berakas Forest Recreation Park




Went to "Taman Rekreasi Hutan Berakas" (Berakas Forest Recreation Park) recently just to enjoy the breeze and the scenery around it. Eventually at first I plan to do some Macro photography but as soon as I arrived, changed my mind and decided to just relax instead.

In case if you need it, the Google Maps reference is = 4.9927918N 114.921391E





This park is located about 11km from Bandar Seri Begawan (a.k.a BSB - the capital of Brunei) and some 20km from Muara Town (a small town at the North of Brunei, known for the port and ships and ferry stuff).





You can go here by driving which will take about 10-15 minutes from BSB or if you strong enough, you can just walk all the way... LOL






As you drive into the entrance you will see a warning on your right - "No Dogs Allowed" so that means Scooby Doo and Snoopy or anything alike is forbidden to be at this park....





Eventually this is also my first time visiting this park.... so I just drive slowly hoping that I wont get lost...





And finally I arrived at this area... so I guess, this is it....





And from there onwards.... I let my Panasonic LX3 do her job....







So far, I think I like the surroundings and the set up....





My first glimpse of the beach area....






And oh... I happen to see lot's of this acrobatic stuff... these bunch of talented and energetic kids love to showing off their hidden talents and I am more than willing to snap some photos...








Eventually if you like that, you can see more of it in here;

As for me, I don't know what else to do, the breeze certainly makes me lazy and I just looking around, pressing the shutter button of the Panasonic LX3 as I please, walking here and there a bit and watching people all around doing their own stuff....









I don't really know much about scenery, but since I just keep on pressing the shutter button of my camera....














I would consider that this beach is quite clean though I think the Tutong Beach is still the best...








This family seems to be having fun building sand castle... I always plan to do it but never actually did it.... sigh...





Looks great....





And I saw some naughty man wrote this on the sand;






And so I decided to write my name as well;












The one and only food/drinks stall in this park... they sell anything from junk food to soft drinks including those coconut juice (with lots of sugar) though there is no condom available what so ever....





It's been a tiring day and I deserve to reward my self with this fantastic Kickapoo Joy Juice...





On the way out, I saw this monkey....






They also have the "jungle/forest" area but I didn't go there this time as I hate those mosquitoes, you can get AIDS from those bastards if you're unlucky - but maybe next time I surely go there to do some Macro photography stuff...

If you like to spend some time with friends and family at the beach doing BBQ or picnic stuff or just hanging around the beach eating junk food or even doing many fun stuff like sand castle or Kamen Rider battle, this beach/forest should be considered. However, if you have children with you, be careful and look after them carefully coz some of the terrains can be dangerous...

That's about it.... I look forward to come here again next time.... certainly a must visit place if you come to Brunei....


In addition, you can see some extra photos taken with my Canon 1000D + Canon EF-50mm F/1.8 Mark II lens in here.
