Final Year Project

"General Geology and Geotourism of Kampung Tarawas - Kampung Monggis"

I'm not going to tell you about my findings. I haven't started it yet. I just want to share with you all about my title for my final year project. Yup. I'll be dealing with tourism. Not just an ordinary tourism but Geotourism and i will be supervised by Professor Dr. Felix Tongkul. He is doing a lot of geotourism work around Sabah and he also wrote a chapter about geotourism in one of the Geotourism book by Newsome and Dowling. A lil bit about geotourism. Geotourism is a tourism based on geological character of a place. Each place will have its own value such as scientific value, aesthetics value, recreation value and cultural value. For the geotourism part, i will do mapping to identify and search for landscape that has heritage value and classify them to different level such as outstanding, high, moderate and low. For the general geology, as usual, aspect such as geological structure, petrography, stratigraphy, sedimentology and others have to be included.
