|«Northern Territory, Australia||Bangkok, Thailand»|
29 – 30 December 2003
After leaving Australia, we stopped in Brunei for 36 hours before continuing to Bangkok. This country known as Brunei Darussalam, on the island of Borneo, is one of Asia’s smallest but richest. The sultan is one on the wealthiest men in the world. We visited the capital city of Bandar Seri Begawan and walked through a floating village and a mosque. We also took a day trip to a national park, where we rode a longboat down a river and hiked over waterfalls. We enjoyed a cool swim and picnic lunch before heading back to the airport and on to Thailand.
