Officially, there are no locations within Brunei that have "city" status. The suburban areas in Brunei Darussalam are divided into kampongs, or villages. These may be administered by either a village council presided by a village head (Ketua Kampong), or by a municipal council (Lembaga Bandaran). Those governed by a municipal council are termed towns.
There are three municipal councils in Brunei, and these administer four towns.
