The official name for Brunei is Negara Brunei Darussalam (i.e. 'Negara Brunei' - the state of Brunei, and `Darussalam' - Abode of Peace). The country is often described as “oil-rich” and stable. The people of the small Southeastern Asian Sultanate, however, know that there is far more to their country than its most famous natural resource. This large size (36cm) hardcover book is filled with stunning photography of Brunei from some of Asia's most talented photographers including Chief Photographer Tara Sosrowardoyo. The photography captures the culture, custom and traditions of the Brunei people, as well as the breath-taking natural beauty of the place. The small country of Brunei is located in steamy Southeast Asia on the northern coast of Borneo, the third largest island in the world. The South China Sea makes up the northern coastline. By land, Brunei is completely bordered by the Malaysian state of Sarawak. The Indonesian state of Kalimantan encompasses the southern two thirds of Borneo. The sovereign nation of Brunei is a land of resplendent mosques and lush rainforests. It boasts a high standard of living, bolstered by the good fortune of having abundant petroleum deposits. There are five major regions of Brunei and we will visit them all in this comprehensive tour inside the last of the grand Malay kingdoms.
