Click here to download visitor information guide.


Brunei Darussalam (Brunei, the Abode of Peace) is a small, prosperous, stable, safe, wholesome and peaceful oil rich Kingdom located on the northern shores of the Island of Borneo, which it shares with Malaysia and Indonesia.

Largely covered in luxuriant and pristine tropical rainforests rich in exotic flora and fauna, Brunei is a paradise for nature lovers and for nature tourism in general.

Because of its small size and excellent road and tourist infrastructure, the best preserved rainforests in Borneo can be easily and safely discovered in day long trips from the comfort of international standard hotels ranging from tourist class inns to the regally opulent Empire Hotel & Country Club, or in overnight trips staying at comfortable lodges or boutique rainforest resorts, making the enriching experience of nature tourism in the tropics a much more approachable proposition for those who appreciate comfort and safety.

A cherished cultural heritage, deep-seated Islamic values and the uniqueness of the ancient and revered Sultanate institution make Brunei a country with a strong identity, where tolerance is a cultural norm and hospitality is common courtesy.

With plenty of greenery, fresh and invigorating pollution free air, a healthy environment free of tropical diseases, no traffic jams and one of the lowest crime rates in the world, Brunei is a welcoming and rejuvenating experience.

Whether it is enjoying the bountiful nature, admiring the opulence of Brunei’s ancient monarchy, discovering the fascinating Water Village – the largest in the world – and the thriving culture and traditions of the Malay people; or simply enjoying a world class round of golf, diving in coral rich waters, being pampered in luxury at the spa or having fun with the family in our safe and wholesome environment, Brunei will reveal itself as a true Kingdom of Unexpected Treasures.

This booklet is meant to provide background information on Brunei facts and figures, practicalities, what to see and do, what makes the country unique, why visit it and other information of interest to visitors, foreign residents, potential investors as well as to those in the travel industry and media.
