In the south-eastern part of Asia you can find a country that can be attributed with the name ob Brunei or officially the Sultanate of Brunei. The country has its location on the island of Borneo and shares its coast line with South China Sea. It is also surrounded by Sarawak Province of Malaysia.

Earlier, the country was under rule of the Great Britain and got its independence only in the year 1984. The country is now an absolute monarchy and the same dynasty is in power since the fifteenth century, barring the British Rule.

The capital and the largest city of the nation is Bandar Seri Begawan and its official language is Malay. The area of the nation is 5,765 square kilometres and its estimated population in the year 2005 was 374,000.

Malay is the predominant culture in the country and is heavily influenced by Islam and Hinduism. If you are planning to visit the country one thing you must take note of is that alcohol is banned here, but a foreigner is allowed to bring some. But that also only for a non-Muslim and in limited quantity.

Brunei is officialy known as the Sultanate of Brunei, and is located on the Borneo, an island in Southeast Asia. Brunei is completely surrounded and engulfed by the state of Sarawak, East Malaysia, with the exception of its coastline, with the South China Sea. Brunei is the remnant of an extremely powerful Sultanate that became independent from Great Britain on 1st January 1984. Bandar Seri Begawan is the capital of Brunei.

The Sultanate of Brunei was at its peak during the 15th and 17th centuries when it exercised control over vast areas of Borneo and the Phillipines. It then fell into a period of decline and was later reduced to being a European colony.
After having been a British protectorate since 1888, Brunei finally gained independence in 1984. The royal dynasty that has ruled Brunei since the 1400s was restored to power.
