Brunei Darussalam travel guide

3.2
Landmarks · Specialty Museums · Architectural Buildings
A small but wealthy country benefiting hugely from large deposits of petroleum and natural gas, Brunei Darussalam sits on the vital sea routes connecting the Pacific to the Indian Ocean. While business-minded travelers make the trip to Brunei Darussalam to invest in some of Southeast Asia's biggest oil fields, tourists flock here to explore culturally rich cities and biologically diverse wilderness areas. National parks protect old-growth forests and coral reefs, providing a lush playground for intrepid hikers, bird-watchers, and divers. Well-rounded tours of Brunei Darussalam usually begin in Bandar Seri Begawan, a thriving capital city in which majestic mosques and modern museums contrast with a somewhat chaotic water village, where hundreds of private homes seem to float on the surface of the Brunei River.
