Brunei is the No. 9 happiest country in the world!!!
The people are well-fed with proper homes and jobs and their currency is strong, yet there’s nary a hint of urban stress so common to developed countries which are wealthy. This is one place where you could live fully at the present moment, without any worry for tomorrow. So why bother about the attractions or things to do list when Brunei offers the most important element: happiness!!
It’s a very safe country. There aren’t a lot of crimes going around. You can walk around alone at night without feeling that there are eyes somewhere prying on you. It’s peaceful, quiet and safe which is why it’s so happy.
