Brunei Travel Pictures
I was in Brunei for 2-3 days and I have got to admit this is one of my favorite countries of all that I had visited. If you are going to cross a street, cars will actually stop for you! And they will give you plenty of distance. If you ask for directions and it is in the person's way, they will actually give you a ride (happened to me twice). One guy even bought me food in case I got hungry while touring. How many countries can you say that about?
Brunei is probably the most expensive of all the countries in South East Asia. I spend about $17 a room in Thailand and Cambodia. $25 a room in Malaysia and Indonesia. $50 a room in the Philippines. But spent about a $100 a room in Brunei. For this reason, many people try to avoid Brunei but I beg you not to. Make sure it is on your hit list of countries to visit -- and because it is a small country you should be able to see all you need to in a day or two.
Here are the key sites that I visited.
- Jame' Asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque
- Sultan Ali Saifuddin Mosque
- Kampong Ayer - venice of the East
- Chinese Temple
