SubdivisionsEdit

Sengkurong is subdivided into villages (Malay: kampung), the third- and lowest-level administrative divisions of Brunei. At present, they officially comprise:[1]

There used to be Kampong Sungai Tampoi and Kampong Bukit Bunga but are now defunct villages; their areas have since been subsumed under neighbouring villages.[citation needed]

Other locationsEdit

Other locations within the mukim include:

  • Pantai Jerudong
  • Pulau Pungit

Notes: Off the coastline of Mukim Sengkurong there are various land extensions to the sea. Some of these prominent 'land extensions' are located near Empire Hotel & Country Club and Pantai Jerudong. These man-made modifications include two, spit-like long extensions towards the sea that forms an almost lagoon-like enclosure that surrounds a body of water to the left and right. Within this 'lagoon' is also a man-made island. Almost all the coastline of Mukim Sengkurong has been modified and added with various 'land extensions' with different shapes and sizes and some pine trees are also planted on them.
