Brunei Climate & Weather

Brunei Climate and Weather

Brunei has a distinctly tropical climate with year-round hot weather and high humidity. Uniquely for the region, Brunei has two monsoon seasons with heavy rainfall from October to February and from May to June. Rain showers tend to be heavy but short-lived. Over March and April rainfall drops to nearly nothing, and drought conditions characterise the coastal areas; temperatures have been known to rise extremely high, making this an uncomfortable time to visit. From September to January, conditions can also be uncomfortably hot and humid. The best time to visit is June to September, but travellers should avoid visiting Brunei during Ramadan, as many businesses are closed.
