Seria Map



Seria offers a serene retreat for tourists visiting Brunei. A small town in the Belait District of the country, Seria, serves as one of the favored Brunei destinations. The tranquil atmosphere of this old town, Seria, attracts numerous visitors throughout the year.

The town of Seria is the base of the oil industry of Brunei. The growth and development of Seria centered around the oil producing region of Brunei. The 'nodding donkey' oil wells scattered in and around Seria provide examples of this booming oil industry.

The Billionth Barrel Monument of Seria signifies the production of billion barrels of oil produced from the oilfield in Seria. The design of the monument is the handiwork of a local architect, who was given this responsibility by Brunei Shell Petroleum.

The entrance to the Billionth Barrel Monument is formed of two arches signifying the Islamic influence on the architecture. The tiles covering the floor of the monument also exhibit an Islamic pattern. The monument is in close proximity to the town of Seria.

The Tamu Seria or the open market forms an important part of the town. Held every Saturday, Tamu Seria is the place to catch a glimpse of the life of the native people. The variety of items sold in Tamu Seria, the hustle and bustle of the market place and the friendly people make it a popular attraction of Seria.
