EQ3: What influences the culture of a country?
Some foreign countries might have went to Vietnam to plan and do things their own ways by taking Vietnam by force. Another is an example of Singapore helping Vietnam for building a city. The roads, street lamps, skyscrapers were mostly copied from Singapore. Thus, some of the culture would change due to all of these factors.
