When we talk to other travellers, Brunei never seems to be on anyone’s radar, again I ask, why?
And why was Brunei a place we wanted to visit?
The first thing that struck me as we drove through the border of Malaysia into Brunei was how green it looked, the second was how cheap the petrol was! At 30c (20p) per litre for diesel and 53c (30p) for petrol, this oil rich country can afford to preserve its trees and nature, and, as a lover of jungles, it was the pristine tropical rainforests that attracted us to this country.
Brunei’s marketing boasts “A Kingdom of Unexpected Treasures”, but did it live up to this claim?
