Brunei Travel Guide
Use this Brunei travel guide to discover this
one-off independent state: a tiny oil-rich sultanate on the north coast of Borneo, cornered and split in two by Sarawak, a state of Malaysia. Its population of less than 400,000 is ruled over by one of the world’s wealthiest men. Three-quarters of Brunei's landmass is covered by virgin rainforest, the highest proportion of primary forest of any country in the world. Brunei is the easiest way to travel to Borneo; as well as pristine jungle, it offers kampong culture, endangered wildlife and creature comforts. Just don't expect to rough it.
