Leopardfish  Country Guide

Lifestyle

Lifestyle

Brunei is known both for its high standard of living and its large expatriate population (representing about 40% of the country’s population). It is a safe country to reside in and most locals are fluent in English. This makes shopping and navigating less complicated. The visiting international should be aware, however, that Brunei is a very conservative Islamic country. All are expected to respect traditional Muslim standards in dress as well as adhere to not drinking alcohol or physically displaying public affection in public.

Cost of Living

Cost of living

Residing in Brunei is neither cheap nor unreasonable. Indeed, according to Xpatulator.com’s July 2016 report, the cost of living in Brunei is about at the international average. This becomes apparent when purchasing a variety of goods and services. Some items are bit pricey such as Internet services, groceries and alcohol. On the other hand, petrol, healthcare, personal care items and restaurant meals are inexpensive. Household accommodations, furnishings, clothing and retail recreational activities are about average. If the teaching expatriate negotiates a compensation package with their international school that reflects living costs in Brunei, he or she should be able to live at a comfortable standard.
