Brunei International Airport Mosque

Brunei is famous for its iconic mosques, you know it before you step out of the airport.

You see the first one before stepping out of the airport - pushing your luggage trolley and waving at those who came to receive you.

There it was, a tall minaret (tower) soaring into the blue sky. Arabic inscriptions carved on the giant entrance, a golden hue reflecting the sun.

I stood at the entrance and gazed it, until my back of my neck went sore. 

Is it a palace, is it a mosque - well, that's an architectural style which defines the icons of Brunei.

On a gentle note, mosques are a place of worship, so must respect the local customs and etiquette. Which means enter only in proper & covered clothes and no interior photography. The local people are warm, welcoming and pleasant to talk to.
