Brunei, officially the Nation of Brunei, the Abode of Peace, is a sovereign state located on the north coast of the island of Borneo, in South-east Asia. Apart from its coastline with the South China Sea it is completely surrounded by the state of Sarawak, Malaysia, and it is separated into two parts by Limbang, which is part of Sarawak. The majority of Bruneians are ethnic Malays following a blend of local Malay cultural attitudes and Islamic values and traditions. Brunei is an attractive destination for singles and married teachers with families. It is a tax free country with a high standard of living in a laid back environment.
Brunei offers a very relaxing lifestyle for its people with a relatively constant temperature all year round. There are leisure clubs which offer a wide range of sporting pursuits and many places of cultural interest to visit. Brunei is a fantastic place to use as a base for further travel around Asia. With cheap flights to Singapore, a major gateway to the rest of Asia, travel can be affordable to further destinations like Thailand, Indonesia, China and Cambodia.
