Brunei is very central, with a flight distance of between 2-3 hours to other ASEAN countries. Students therefore during term break can get away to close by cities like Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Saigon, Bangkok, Jakarta and many more. Two hours drive away is Miri (Malaysia), Brunei closest neighbor city. [1] http://gsr.ubd.edu.bn/ [2] http://sbe.ubd.edu.bn/
