Destination Information for Brunei Darussalam
Home to the largest oilfields in Southeast Asia, Brunei Darussalam has one of the world’s highest standards of living. There is also significant natural beauty in the area in the form of the Ulu Temburong National Park, with guided-tour packages allowing you to experience the rainforest in a truly untamed state. Only 1 square kilometre of the jungle is accessible to tourists for conservation reasons, but this is more than enough to get a true feel of the place, as you can take part in canopy walks and swim in the cool mountain waters of Sungai Temburong.
Outside of the rural, the city of Bandar Seri Begawan provides an impressive urban setting, with some enormous mosques and informative museums available to explore. Furthermore, the city boasts the biggest water village in the world, giving visitors an insight into traditional Malay life.
