Bandar Seri Begawan

Most visitors to Brunei never get far out of the capital city of Bandar Seri Begawan or Seria—the next biggest city.  But a visit to these sea & river-faring Malays is not complete without a trip up the Brunei River on a traditional Malay wooden perahu. 

Most years Brunei Darussalam is the richest per capita nation on earth.  A place about the size of Connecticut, but that sits on huge oil reserves means lots of money for nearly everyone.
