Assignment in Bandar Seri Begawan

Today I would like to discuss Bandar Seri Begawan in Brunei. If you were to be sent to Bandar Seri Begawan on an expatriate assignment or if you were to relocate there, you are likely to experience weather that is tropical, hot, humid and rainy. You will meet people who speak Malay, English, and Chinese.

The cost of clothing and food and beverages is high. The cost of housing is are average. The cost of transport is low.

Bandar Seri Begawan is the capital and largest city of the Sultanate of Brunei. The city produces furniture, textiles, handicrafts, and timber. From a day to day comfort perspective, you are likely to experience a high degree of hardship. Be sure to negotiate an appropriate salary or allowance to compensate for the cost of living.

If you live in Bandar Seri Begawan or if you lived there recently, let us know what your experience has been. Would you live in Bandar Seri Begawan again?
