Brunei is a small nation on the island of Borneo and surrounded by Malaysia. 

Brunei is not somewhere that many people have on their list to see and because of this it is pretty tourist free. However its location is perfect for the South-East Asia backpackers to visit if they make the plan to do so. 


When travelling to Brunei going to visit Kampong Ayer is a must see as it is a national heritage of Brunei. Kampong Ayer is a floating village in river of Brunei that homes around 13,000 residents. The village is split up into different areas with boats that go between them and land for people to get around. 

Brunei is the ultimate photography place with beautiful mosques and buildings and palaces that make for the ultimate travel selfie.
