Double click anywhere & add an idea South East Asia Brunei Culture Brunei's culture mainly derived from the Old Malay World, which encompassed the Malay Archipelago and from this stemmed what is known as the Malay Civilisation. Based on historical facts, various cultural elements and foreign civilisations had a hand in influencing the culture of this country. Thus, the influence of culture can be traced to four dominating periods of animism, Hinduism, Islam and the West. However, it was Islam that managed to wound its roots deeply into the culture of Brunei hence it became a way of life and adopted as the state's ideology and philosophy.

Food Food in Brunei is very similar to that of its neighbors, Malaysia and Singapore. They are rich and spicy with rice and noodles being the staple food. Brunei is famous for its diverse and great food. Being a melting pot, you can have a great range of food throughout the day.

Cambodia culture The culture of Cambodia has had a rich and varied history dating back many centuries, and has been heavily influenced by India and China.[1] Throughout Cambodia's long history, a major source of inspiration was from religion.

The food in Cambodia is similar to that of neighbouring Thailand and other Asian foods, except with a little less spice and variety, and seems to lacks the 'oomph' that makes Thai food so popular! In Cambodia you will find lots of fried rice and fried noodle dishes. Garlic is a major ingredient in many of the dishes and they don’t chop it up too finely either!
