Brunei, with a population of 415,717 people, is located in Southeastern Asia and has a land area of 5,765 square kilometres. The country borders the South China Sea and shares a border with Sarawak, an eastern Malaysian state which divides Brunei into two, an eastern part and a western part. The Temburong District makes up the eastern half while the Brunei-Maura, Tutong and Belait Districts comprise the western half.

The Temburong District is an exclave and is separated from the rest of Brunei by Malaysia and Brunei Bay. This district is home to Brunei’s first National Park Ulu Temburong National Park and is covered by beautiful forests. Recent years have seen a push towards eco-tourism encouraging locals and visitors from other countries to experience the district.

The Brunei-Maura, Tutong and Belait Districts are characterized by hilly lowlands, swampy plains and alluvial valleys. The Brunei-Maura District is the smallest, but the capital Bandar Seri Begawan is located there and it is the most populated of all the districts. The Belait District is the centre of the oil and gas industry which is key to Brunei’s economic success. The Tutong District is home to Brunei’s largest lake, Tasek Merimbun which was named an ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asia Nations) Heritage Park.
