MALAYSIA AND BRUNEI
They say Malaysia is “Truly Asia“. I totally agree. One of the most beautiful and largest islands in Asia is definitely Borneo. You won’t find as many tourists there and if you want to experience more of the real Asia, go there as soon as possible. Brunei is an oil mini-state led by a sultan who seems to have fallen out of an oriental fairy tale full of luxury. Its museum, however, reminds me a bit of the footage from the movie “The Dictator“. Brunei has a slightly smaller population than Brno. I guess I was lucky and all my taxi drivers were women. I plan to spend only two days here. When I tell the taxi driver, she just shakes her head and says, “Two days? Then you’ll be bored to death.” And she’s right.
