  The Floating Mosque in Brunei

Brunei, located on the north coast of Borneo, offers a sanctuary of peace. It is a country that is oil and gas rich. In fact, the Billionth Barrel Monument commemorates the production of the billionth oil barrel produced in the oil fields. Attractions include the beach, the theme park and the Sultan's residence.

The country has a tropical climate, vast rainforests and a culture steeped in history. In order to experience this beautiful country, it is recommended that you hire a car from an approved Brunei car hire company.

Car hire in Brunei is available for pick up from Bandar Seri Begawan International Airport (BWN). Bandar Seri Begawan is described as Brunei's cultural capital with some of the country's most celebrated landmarks. The Brunei Museum and the Twelve Roofs House are popular tourist hotspots.

Brunei's population is deeply cultural. The country's language, customs and Islamic law teachings are known as Malay Islamic Monarchy. Mosques are some of the most popular tourist attractions in Brunei. Two of the city's must-see landmarks are the Omar Ali Saifuddien and Jame'Asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosques. The advantage of organising Brunei car hire is the accessibility it provides to many tourist attractions such as mosques and cultural centres.

The Istana Nurul Iman palace is a few miles south of Bandar Seri Begawan. It is the official residence of the Sultan of Brunei. The palace is open to the public on the Hari Raya Aidilfitri, an annual Islamic celebration.

A short distance from Bandar Seri Begawan is Jerudong Theme Park, an attraction suitable for all the family. Also popular with families is Muara Beach. For those interested in nature, Tasek Merimbun Lake is about 70km from the capital city.

Some of Brunei's tourist attractions cannot be reached by car. The Ulu Temburong National Park is a magical rainforest on the east side of Brunei, which is only accessible by boat. To find the best price on car hire in Brunei, use TravelSupermarket's search tool above.
