The western part of Brunei is mainly hilly lowland rising inland to about 300 metres. To the east the broad coastal plain is replaced by jungle clad hills, reaching up to Brunei’s highest point, Bukit Pagon, 1850 metres above sea level. The total land area is 5765 sq. km. The coastline is about 160 km long.

The capital of Brunei is Bandar Seri Begawan, which is locally known as Bandar or BSB. It has a population of about 100,000.

Tutong town is much smaller and is very close to some excellent beaches. Kuala Belait, the main town of the Belait district, is Brunei’s second town and is near the Shell complex of Seria, with its large expatriate population. Temburong district and its main town, Bangar, are much less developed and are reached by a 45-minute boat trip from BSB or a two-hour drive passing through Malaysian territory.

Brunei has an equatorial climate with average temperature of 28-32C (82-89F). During the monsoon (November – January) it is generally cooler with high rainfall, usually in the afternoons and flooding occurs in some areas. The relative humidity averages around 82% throughout the year.

Brunei is always hot and humid, although the skies may often be overcast, 55% of the daylight hours are sunshine hours. Most offices, large stores, and cars are air conditioned, but this is not the case with school classrooms.

Brunei is not generally subject to cyclone activity and does not suffer from earthquakes or volcanic activity.
