If not, this easily missed sultanate is known for having the largest oil fields in Southeast Asia one of the world's highest standards of living.
Laid-back capital, Bandar Seri Begawan, gleams with magnificent mosques that contrast with a massive stilt house water village and lush mangrove forests nearby.
If you find yourself in this side of Borneo, perhaps visiting Kota Kinabalu. Brunei is an excellent excursion for at least a night's visit.
