Brunei is in Southest Asia on the Northeast coast of the magical island of Borneo about 500 km north of the Equator. Brunei is divided into two separate sections and is surrounded by the Malaysian state of Sarawak. The country has a lush, green, leafy feel to it that many people find addictive. Every bush that one passes is alive with the sounds of hundreds of creatures and the amount of flora and fauna. Most people tend to live on or near the coast and the rest of the country is mostly lush, green rainforest.

Despite the enormous amount of development which has taken place over the last ten years, there are still very large areas of untouched jungle. The population remains small and towns are not at all crowded. Overall, much of the country is in pristine condition. I have been here for thirteen years and it is not uncommon to meet fellow teachers who have been here for five, ten or even twenty years! Students are great, workload is reasonable, teachers are treated with respect and the country has a great standard of living … What’s not to like!
