Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei Darussalam
September 1, 2016
Located on the banks of Kianggeh River, Tamu Kianggeh is one of the cleanest and scenic markets in Brunei that has been around since the 1960s. Most of the stall owners in this market are Bruneian Malays and Chinese selling a wide variety of products such as local vegetables, medicinal plants and herbs from the forest.
Sea and other fresh water goods can also be bought in Tamu Kianggeh, as well as dried anchovies, dried shrimps and salted fish. Likewise, for the ‘foodies’ who don’t normally prepare their own meals, ready-cooked meals are available and all other kinds of local delicacies like kueys (sweet cakes) and rice cakes.
Apart from edible goods, stall owners are also retailing local traditional handicrafts like hand-woven baskets, pots and vases.
Tamu Kianggeh is one of the places worthy of visit in Brunei. However, most of the stalls close in the afternoon, so it is recommended to go in the morning to get the freshest goods.
