Tucked away on the north coast of Malaysia’s Borneo Island is the tiny country of Brunei. Grab a cheap airport car hire to make the most out of your visit to this unique Southeast Asian nation.
Brunei is home to almost half a million people and is often called Brunei Darussalam, meaning abode of peace. The oil-rich empire is separated into two unconnected parts. Almost the entire population lives on the western part which includes the cities of Bandar Seri Begawan, Kuala Belait and Tutong, while just 10,000 live in the eastern part in the Temburong District, a mountainous region with forest preserves and national parks. Hop in your rental car to explore dense rainforests, elaborate mosques and breathtaking beaches.
