Brunei Darussalam is a small sovereign state located on the northern coast of Borneo. Despite being one of the world’s richest countries, it remains to be one humble nation maintaining an uncrowded and semi-industrialized domain.
Some of the places to visit include the Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque, Jame ‘Asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque, Kampong Ayer, Brunei Museum and Gadong Night Market.
I spent a total of BND 356.9 for transportation , accommodation and road trip, that’s about 12,460 Pesos (USD 264.75). I could have saved half of that if I booked the cheap flights.
