This is one thing I really wanted to see during my 2 day stopover in Brunei. Established that the best time to visit was a couple of hours before sunset and so found myself on the docks about that time where I simply hired a water taxi (cost B$30 and I paid the driver an extra B$20 to stay on a bit longer (ended up around 2 hours) - this compared to around B$95 if I had booked thru hotel). I found grabbing a water taxi to do quick tours cheap and easy. After a boating about 15 min upriver, my driver (who spoke excellent English and had obviously done this trip many times as he was very knowledgeable) found 3 different troupes (about 20 monkeys in all) during our trip. We parked the boat at one location beside an artificial canal where I could stand/walk around a bit on land and get good sightings/photos - other locations were in the midst of the mangroves. Because I was not with a group I did not have to scramble over people to see the monkeys and on return I simply walked into town for dinner and to watch the sunset over the water villages.
