Shoppers from all over the world come to Singapore for cheap quality shopping and a ton of fun shopping experience. However, the most experienced shoppers don’t stop in Singapore; they go to the nearby Muslim nation of Brunei Darussalam. Shopping in Brunei is a perfect follow-up or detour since the values of the Brunei and Singapore dollars are exactly the same and both may be used in either nation.
Bruneians love to shop that it is considered a national pastime. They move from one available shopping area to another but sadly there are only a few in this tiny country. Negara Brunei Darussalam or simply Brunei is a small Muslim sultanate found in the island of Borneo, not very far from Singapore.
Brunei is a wealthy Southeast Asian country and its citizens enjoy a high standard of living. They get free education, free healthcare, free use of leisure centers, house and car subsidies, pension, and enjoy income-tax-free jobs. So what would people spend their money on? They go shopping for the most expensive international brands such as Guess, Versace, Ralph Lauren, Giorgio Armani, Gucci, and so on. Below are tips on where to shop in Brunei.
