Hello.. I’m planning a trip to Kota Kinabalu. I’ve found a great hotel discount, but want to be sure it’s a good location. This is the info given:
TA-/00-01 1Borneo Hypermall Jalan Ums, Kota Kinabalu, SABAH 88450, Malaysia
From Kota Kinabalu International Airport, take a taxi, shuttle bus or private car and drive towards Jalan Coastal passing through Jalan Tun Razak and moving towards Jalan Kk Bypass to 1Borneo Hypermall located at Jalan Sulaman.
I would like somewhere close to shops and restaurants.. is this going to be it?
A I really wouldn’t stay at 1borneo, its miles away from the town in the middle of nowhere and you would definitely regret it. My girlfriend works there and I often have to drop her off in the morning and traffic to and from 1borneo can be horrible. The mall isn’t even finished yet either so there is a lack of things to see and do there.

With majority of the Earth’s people now urban dwellers, and cities being the most efficient habitat for the utilisation of resources, it is imperative that we continue to support standards of living and efficiencies of urban areas. However, the urbanisation process has not been without its problems. While much has been done to address the original issues surrounding the quality of urban life, new challenges continue to arise. It is no longer sustainable to achieve improvements by means that require greater and greater energy consumption as we did in the past. Despite their complexity, however, cities are a great laboratory for architects, engineers, and other key professionals to apply new ideas and new technology to meet our requirements for more sustainable city environments. Containing papers presented at the latest in a series of conferences organised by the Wessex Institute of Technology, these proceedings, split in to two volumes address not just environmental, architectural, and engineering concerns, but also quality of life, security, risk, and heritage. The diversity of topics and the case studies based on existing projects make the book an important contribution to the literature on urban planning.

While public administration practice and education in general has become considerably professionalized in the last decade, existing knowledge on public administration in Southeast Asia is fragmented at best, and often devoid of a useful reference. While journal articles and government reports provide decentralized information, Public Administration in Southeast Asia: Thailand, Philippines, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Macao takes a comprehensive and comparative look at the major components of administration systems. The selection of countries and regions included reflects the diversity of Southeast Asia.
Organized by Country
The handbook fills a critical need by bringing together leading scholars who provide an insider perspective and viewpoint on essential and advanced issues. Divided into five sections, each dedicated to a particular country, the text outlines topics relevant to modern public administration, including:
• History and Political Context of Public Administration
• Decentralization and Local Governance
• Public Ethics and Corruption
• Performance Management Reforms
• Civil Service System
Focusing on recent developments in public administration in these countries which are among the fastest growing economies in the world, the book explores their practices and innovative approaches in public administration. For many years people have been fascinated by the cultures, peoples, and governments of Southeast Asia, and now they have a book that discusses the apparatus of government in Southeast Asia – their agencies, contexts, processes, and values.
