The Nation of Brunei, the Abode of Peace, more commonly referred to as simply Brunei, is a sovereign state in South East Asia, situated on the north coast of Borneo. It is surrounded by Sarawak, Malaysia on all sides, except for its coastline on the South China Sea. The country's full name is Negara Brunei Darussalam, darussalam, which translates to 'Abode of Peace', and its capital and largest city is Bandar Seri Begawan. Despite its small size, Brunei is a wealthy country due to its natural gas and petroleum resources.

Brunei Museum - The national museum of Brunei is located in the country's capital, Bandar Seri Begawan. It offers several exhibits such as the following: the Islamic Art Gallery displays 9th and 10th century blow glass from Egypt and the Eastern Mediterranean, as well as ceramics from Iran and Central Asia, and tiny Korans. The Brunei Traditional Culture Gallery on the other hand showcases the role of Brunei in the history and cultures of South East Asia. Meanwhile, the National History Gallery presents an introduction to the extraordinary biodiversity in Borneo.

Muzium Teknologi Melayu - The Malay Technology Museum can be found in Kota Batu, right next to Brunei Museum. It contains three exhibition halls, the Water Village Traditional House Gallery, the Water Village Traditional Technology Gallery, and the Inland Traditional Technology Gallery. Each one showcases the way of life and how things were done in the ancient times.

Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque - This Islamic mosque is also located in the capital. It serves as a place of worship for the Muslim community, as well as a striking tourist attraction. The golden-domed mosque is also notable for its architectural structure.

Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium - Bandar Seri Begawan also contains a multi-purpose stadium that is used primarily for football games. Though not a very common practise in terms of building public buildings, the locals offered donations for the construction of the stadium.

Jerudong Park - The Bruneian Government spent $1 billion for the construction of Jerudong Park, making it the smallest yet most expensive amusement park in South East Asia. It features a Musical Fountain show, Kiddie Rides, a Mini Amphitheatre, Mini-Golf course, and F1 go-cart attractions. Entry is free, but in order to use the rides one must purchase tickets.

How to get around within Brunei

Ownership of private vehicles is very high in Brunei; hence there are not a lot of public transportation options. There are only a handful of taxis available, and most of the standby taxis are stationed at the airport and in the Belait District. If you do manage to get a cab, note that they do not use taxi metres, although most have fixed fares. Hitchhiking, though not very recommendable in any country especially for women, is very easy in Brunei. All it takes is to stand on the side of the road and stick up a thumb.

The easiest and most efficient way to get around Brunei is by renting a car. It's quite expensive, but it’s an easy and hassle-free way to tour the country.

How to get there

The primary gateway into the Sultanate of Brunei is Brunei International Airport. It serves as the main hub of Royal Brunei Airlines, but caters to other airlines namely AirAsia, Cebu Pacific, Malaysia Airlines, MASwings, and SilkAir. Together, the airlines and the airport link Brunei to destinations in Asia and Oceania, with London being the only destination outside of these regions.
