Brunei in 1 day

  7 votes
I reach Brunei from Kota Kinabalu (Sabah, Malaysia) by quick boat. It take about 4 hours. Brunei officially the State of Brunei Darussalam is a very small islamic country located on the north coast of the island of Borneo.

Brunei is completely surrounded by the state of Sarawak, Malaysia. Head of state is His Majesty Paduka Seri Baginda Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu'izzaddin Waddaulah.

The official religion of Brunei is islam at 67 percent, and the sultan is the head of the religion in the country.
