Brunei Climate & Weather

Brunei has a distinctly tropical climate, with year-round hot weather and high humidity. Uniquely for the region, Brunei has two monsoon seasons, and experiences heavy rainfall from October to February and from May to June. Rain showers tend to be heavy but short-lived.

Rainfall drops to nearly nothing over March and April, when drought conditions characterise the coastal areas. Temperatures have been known to rise extremely high, making this an uncomfortable time to visit. Conditions can also be uncomfortably hot and humid from September to January.

The best time to visit is from June to September, though travellers should avoid visiting Brunei during Ramadan, as many businesses are closed.
