Postcard from Brunei

Zvětšit mapu

A postcard from Brunei, sent on 24 January 2008, showing Kampong Ayer, or the Water Village, according to wikipedia: "an area of Brunei's capital city Bandar Seri Begawan that is situated in the middle of the Brunei River. 39,000 people live in the Water Village. This represents roughly ten percent of the nation's total population. All of the Water Village buildings are constructed on stilts above the Brunei River... People have lived in Kampong Ayer for over 1300 years. Antonio Pigafetta dubbed it the "Venice of the East" when the fleet of Ferdinand Magellan visited." in 1521. Truly impressive!

The 50 sen stamp is part of a 1985-1986 series of definitives showing the portrait of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah.
