EQ1. What is your current impression of hcmc?
My current impression of HCMC is a developing and extremely busy city with friendly people and a unique culture. What I love most in HCMC are the retail shops and markets where prices are negotiable and when there is such a huge variety of items for sale.

A culture is what defines a certain group of people by their actions and their beliefs. For example, a family 'culture' can be what a particular family does and treats a certain action passed down from generation to generation.
EQ3. What influences the culture of a country?
The actions the people in the country have towards particular situations. For example, the vietnamese have a culture of bargaining for prices, in turn affecting tourists. Another example would be the use motorbikes as the people's main form of transport in the country.
