Our very own 1Utama
A shopping session in 1 Borneo is certainly enjoyable. There's a variety of items to choose from and the atmosphere is never ever dull.
The mall, considered to be our own version of 1 Utama certainly lives up to the people's high expectation. As an all in one mall, I don't think one would find the shops here to be lacking in choice.
For those of us who would like to try something new, there's also a fish massage center located on the third floor, opposite the Golden Screen Cinema. If you're bored of a human masseuse, give these fishes a try. You're in for a surprise. There's also a lot of eateries located here. My personal favorite is the Wagamama Japanese restaurant located in the 2nd floor. The sushi here is pretty fresh compared to Sushi King and the place is also not as crowded.
I do think that the prices here are pretty inconsistent. Most of the items here have a steep price tag. However, the quality is pretty good and you'll get what you paid for. But, if you're in the mood, you could always opt for window shopping. The place just feels so alive!
For added convenience, the mall also provides shuttle service to the town of Kota Kinabalu which is located 30 to 45 minutes away.
