Overview

  • Brunei is a Shangri-La for many people.  Due to its massive oil reserves and the tiny size of the country, the government is able to provide free education, free health care and many other free or heavily subsidized services.  The people we met were well educated, well-off and very friendly.  Brunei is definitely worth a stop-over if you’re in the area.
