Brunei

  Brunei  

Brunei is located in Southeast Asia, bordering the South China Sea and Malaysia. Tiny oil-rich Brunei occupies a mere 2,200 square miles in the northwest of Borneo. The same family has ruled the country for 600 years.

There’s plenty to do in Brunei for three days, although anything much longer might be a stretch. In the capital, Bandar Seri Begawan (known as BSB), the shopping is out of this world. Brunei’s citizens, with free education, free health care, free pensions, subsidized housing, and low taxes have one of the highest per capita disposable incomes in Asia, and two glittery malls and a host of upscale boutiques provide plenty of things to splurge on.
