All you ever wanted to know about oil and gas - Brunei
All you ever wanted to know about oil and gas

The Royal Brunei Museum is a few kilometres from the centre of the capital along the Brunei River. It houses an odd mixture of wonderful Islamic art and a history of the oil and gas industry in Brunei. Oh, and they also have some vases recovered from a boat which sank in the area five centuries ago.

Spacious accommodation

The Istana Nurul Iman is the official residence of the Sultan of Brunei. It is the largest residential palace in the world, stretching more than half a kilometre along the bank of the Brunei River. The palace has 1788 rooms; at a room a day, it would take His Majesty nearly five years to inspect the whole palace.

Glittering opulence - Brunei
Glittering opulence

You can’t miss this magnificent place of worship. It dominates the skyline of the capital. The Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque was built in the 1950s and incorporates Italian marble, English stained glass and gold mosaics. The impression of glittering opulence is reinforced by the shimmering reflection in the lagoon. The mosque may be visited by non-Muslims from Sunday to Wednesday.
